Additional Information

Introduction

Seda Larong Wuming Buddhist Academy is a large Buddhist institute. It has thousands of wooden cabins scattered on the hillside. There are many paths in the Buddhist Academy. You can take a stroll on any of them. On the slope of the southwestern corner of the prayer tower, you can overlook the entire academy. You can also take photos of the entire academy there. If you are curious about the celestial burial ceremony, you can take a ride at the academy to watch it. The scene is quite shocking. However, please make sure you respect the local ethnic customs and take no photos.
