This is Tagong — slice of Tibet in Sichuan province, minus the need for permits or guides. At the centre of the small town sits Tagong Lamasery. Throughout the day devotees spin its outer walls, walking clockwise and turning the cumbersome, golden prayer wheels with one hand as they go. Prayer wheels are part of the landscape here; from the ornate versions, inscribed with prayers, that surround the monasteries, to those on the top of houses making use of the ample winds sweeping across the grasslands, to those in the rivers, where the rapid water ensures they turn endlessly. Good karma spins out from all directions in Tagong.
