Stunning photos of Larung Gar in Tibet

Little boxes on the hillside... home to 40,000 Buddhist monks: The stunning makeshift town that has sprung up around a Tibetan monastery

The remote settlement located in the Larung Valley, Serthar County of Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, in China. Thousands of tiny homes sprawled up the mountainside form one of the world's largest Buddhist institutes.

According to the post Larung Gar is possibly the biggest Buddhist Monastery or Institute in the world with at least 10,000 residents. It is located near Serta in what was the Tibetan province of Kham.
