Chong Gu Lamasery loate the the foot of Xian Nai Ri Mountain in which altitude is 3880 meters. Because of the ascendant location, it is the necessity to pass to watch the three jokuls and is the springboard of walking around mountain by Tibetan.
The old lamasery was ruined that only did it leave vestiges. The new lamaseray had been built beside the old one. Lamas manage the passenger's accomondation there. And at the second floor there is living a Living Buddha. If passanger go to visit him, he always give visitor some gift liberally.
I admire the three lamas living there. They always get up before five in the morning and go to sleep after twelve o'clock for taking care the passanger as making hot water and planning the accomondation. Beside, they have duty to patter and burn joss sticks. Only the most simple food they eat. They treated me and were very friendly. I really appreciate them very much

At the as high as more than 4000 metres place, there are exist a paradise garden.

When I saw it, I know it is really holy lake.
Sela's charm only we know deeply. Most tourist miss it. However, that kind of hollowness and clear is a special beauty. I often walk around Sela when sunset and sunrise to taste the quiet. Sinuous river and forceful poplar tell me secret of Daocheng. A secret of beauty , a beauty others don't know.
