What people are saying:

Gannan Zhaga is called the tears of heaven. Zhagana is a natural stone city, located in an ancient city in Diebu County, Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province. It means "stone box" in Tibetan. The terrain is like a huge palace on a grand scale, but also like a natural rock wall. Zhaga's mountains are strangely steep, with clouds and mist, like a fairyland. The rational combination and complementary integration of multiple production activities such as nomadism, farming, hunting, and wood harvesting in the Tibetan village have become a model of harmonious coexistence between man and nature.

Additional Information


In the Tibetan language, the word "Zhagana" means "stone box." Also known as the "Yama Temple," it is a complete city built of natural stone. The topography of the site is like a giant palace. It is said to resemble an ancient city that has been constructed entirely of rock and stone. This place can be called a natural wonder. For several centuries, this natural stone city was an important station on the edge of the ancient trade routes. Inside the stone city, there are four villages and one temple. Dongwa Village and Sangla Temple are located in the center of the stone city.
