Langmu Temple, literally meaning "fairy monastery", is situated some 90 km from Luqu County, on the main Gansu to Sichuan highway track. The town was named after an ancient legend which is about a fairy turning into stone.
The town now harbors two monasteries, facing each other over the river and valley bottom, and housing around 1,200 monks. It was originally built as a crucial academic institute for lamas studying Tibetan Buddhism, but gradually lost its importance, forming a sharp contrast with the increasingly popular Labrang Monastery of Xiahe. The town still remains, despite a few signs of decaying prosperity (or perhaps because of them), a beautiful place, not overly plagued by tourists. The mountain cliffs that rear up to both the east and west of the small town are breathtaking, giving the whole area a kind of Swiss alpine charm. These and other mountains in the area can be scaled to give spectacular, though desolate views of this remote area. The sky burials up here, where deceased locals are cut up and left to the vultures, are best left alone.
