What people are saying:

Dege Dege County is located in the northwest of Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province, adjacent to Ganzi County to the east, Baiyu County to the south, Jiangda County to the west across the Jinsha River, and Shiqu County to the north. It is located on the Jinsha River and Yalong The upper reaches of the river. It is the last county seat in the Sichuan section of Sichuan-Tibet National Highway 317. Dege Sutra Printing House Dege Sutra Printing House is known as "Encyclopedia of Tibetan Culture", "Bright Cultural Pearl of Tibetan Areas", and "Treasure House Under Snow Mountain". It is under the jurisdiction of Dege Gengqing Temple, which is the information center for importing and exporting Tibetan culture. The endless stream of believers in the Printing House attracts an endless stream of worshippers every day, and they turn clockwise around the Printing House. After the transfer, I will sit in the open space in front of the yard to bask in the sun and talk about the housework! The time for printing scriptures in Dege Printing Institute is only half a year, from March 15 to September 20 of the Tibetan calendar. During this period, people can visit and worship in the courtyard, which is called "Balchadon". Dege became the birthplace of Kham's standard Tibetan language, which is not unrelated to the rich cultural accumulation of the Printing Institute. Behind the Gengqing Temple Printing House is Gengqing Temple, which is the main monastery of the Sakya Sect of Tibetan Buddhism in Kham. A grand chanting ceremony is held here every morning! Location: No. 17, Wenhua Street, Gengqing Town, Dege County. Accommodation guide: Living in Dege County can be reached on foot or by taxi from the county seat.
