Langmusi is located in a varied natural environment that makes it an ideal starting point for hiking or horseback riding. Mainly populated by Tibetans, the village is also home to a large Hui community and Goloks.
Located on the border between Gansu and Sichuan, Langmusi has a temple in each of these province. The one in the Gansu province has several large halls surrounded by forest and is located on the hillside overlooking the village. At the top of it, its a heavenly burial site.
The one in the Sichuan province is essentially a place of study because it includes several colleges. Going beyond it, you reach the entrance of the gorge, where many Katas are hung on trees and rock.
