These #Mani stones are placed at Fei Lai Temple (#飞来寺 or Fei Lai Si) as offerings to the warrior god mountain, Kawagarbo.
Feilai Temple (Used by followers of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism) was created in the 1600's and consists of Zisun (Descendants) Hall, the Hall of God, Haichao (Sea Tide Hall), Liangxiang (Wing-rooms) Hall, Liang’er (Two Ears) Hall, and Sipei (Side) Hall.
I took this photo from Feilai temple in northern Yunnan near the town of Deqin. It is said that to see the peak you must be very lucky or just a very good person. Well, I believe I'm a good person, but maybe luck had a lot to do with it, but I lost my breath at the sight (and not just because of the extreme altitude) of the range.
One of the most sacred and beloved mountain ranges to Tibetan Buddhists, 卡瓦格博 (Kawagarbo Peak) is the tallest of the 梅里雪山 (Meili Xue Shan or Meili Snow Mountain) range along the Tibet/Yunnan border at 6740 meters (22,107 feet) above sea level. Most of the tallest peaks in the range have never been summoned due to both the harshness (an expedition lost all 17 members during a climb attempt in 1991) and the religious meaning (It is believed that man should never stand above the warrior god peak of Kawagarbo or the warrior god will leave them.). @natgeo@natgeotravel@natgeocreative@thephotosociety@natgeoyourshot@natgeochina@theimagereview#adamcrase#kungfuimaging#thisischina#ctrip#deqin#feilaisi#feilaitemple#tibetanplateau#inthemountains#adventuretravel#tibetan#himalayas#kawagarbo #instagreat#instagood#instanature#mountainview#mountains#mountain
