Comté Xiahe

Xiahe (Chinese: 夏河; pinyin: Xiàhé; Tibetan: བསང་ཆུ་, Wylie: bsang chu, ZYPY: Sangqu) is a county in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu province, the People’s Republic of China, bordering Qinghai province to the west. It is home to the famed Labrang Tibetan Buddhist monastery, one of the largest Tibetan Buddhist monasteries outside the Tibet Autonomous Region. The town is populated largely by ethnic Tibetans, as well as some Hui and Han Chinese. The area is highly rural and pastoral (including yak and other animal rearing). The geography is mountainous. In recent years it has become a tourist attraction. The town was named Xiahe in 1928.
