Travel Pictures Gallery.com - China - Xiahe (Gansu)
a series of travel images from China, Xiahe (Labrang in Tibetan) is a town in Gansu Province with strong ethnic ties to neighbouring Tibet. Just a 3 1/2 hour bus trip from Lanzhou it has been a destination for travellers who want to experience a bit of Tibet without taking the journey all the way there. The magnificent Labrang Monastery with the nearby mountains as a backdrop make for an excellent alternative.
