What people are saying:

See you through thousands of years~ Dege Scripture Printing House. The third stop of Ganzi self-driving during the National Day holiday came from Shiqu County. Although Dege also has an altitude of more than 3,000, the high counter does not exist at all. The county town is very small. When we drove from the hotel, the traffic police uncle guided us to park the car to the government compound for free. Tickets for the Printing House are not expensive. There are three floors. The first floor is the hall dedicated to the gods. The second and third floors are the places for printing and collecting books. You can see the manual printing of scriptures on site, which is quite ritual. You must hire a tour guide here, or you can hardly understand it, but this sense of mystery and ritual also makes people feel worthwhile.

    Treasury of Tibetan Culture

    The printing is all done manually by pairs of workers. There is no electricity wiring in the whole building due to fire prevention, thus it is dim inside.

    Nice monastery, interesting printing house

    At the time of our visit there was some construction work being done in front of the monastery, which impeded our ability to take pictures from the outside. The Monastery is surrounded by colorful man...

    Printing the Past in the Present

    The Dege Printing House on the border between Sichuan and the TAR, is currently not easy to reach, involving a hair-raising drive over the 5,050m Tro-la Pass*, but eminently worthwhile. The main attra...
