The road to Muli, Stage 3: Renjom Gompa

Renjom Gompa, originally uploaded by mutikonka1.

This is the tiny Buddhist monastery of Renjom Gompa, situated in a beautiful valley half way between Yongning and Muli. It is a day's trek over low hills to get here from Yongning, via the log cabin villages of Wulabi and Lijiasun.

Joseph Rock passed this way many times on his visits to Muli and mentions the monastery with its lonely monk in residence.
