The physiological challenges of living so far above sea level are not trivial, and yet people with roots in these areas are largely able to avoid these problems. Biologists aren't sure how they do it. When lowlanders travel to high altitudes, their bodies produce more red blood cells, which house the oxygen-carrying protein hemoglobin. However, Tibetans living at high altitudes have red blood cell levels and hemoglobin levels similar to those of lowlanders at sea level — and as a consequence of the low oxygen levels at those altitudes, Tibetans live with 10% less oxygen in their blood than most other people. Lower oxygen levels might seem like a disadvantage, yet highland women have fewer fertility problems than lowlanders living at high altitudes, have better blood flow to the uterus during pregnancy, and deliver heavier, healthier babies. For these reasons, biologists are convinced that there is an evolutionary explanation for Tibetans' success — that over generations of living at high altitudes, natural selection has favored traits that allow Tibetans to survive and reproduce in this extreme environment. But which traits?

Ganden Tubchen Chokhorling, was founded in 1580 by the third Dalai Lama, and rebuilt recently in the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution, under the guidance of Litang Kyabgon Tulku Palden Dorje and Shodruk Tulku. The reconsecration was carried out in conjunction with the Litang Horse Festival in July 1996. Entering the main gate from the town, there are five main buildings within the precincts of the monastery. The assembly hall known as Jamchen Chokhorling and the Shakya Tubpa Podrang occupy the centre, to the left a large four storey Tsongkhapa Lhakhang and higher up the hill are the temples Serkhang Nyingba and Lhakhang Karpo. www.footprinttravelguides.com/c/2848/tibet/&Action=pr...

Singsing Dungkar Gon is one of the largest monasteries in the Sertal county, with 300-400 monks ( it once had over 1000 monks ). The complex is well situated on a hilltop, overlooking Gogentang to the south. Below the monastery at the base of the hill there is a nine-storey tower and a Mani Lhakang, alongside the drapery of soaring prayer flags, some round and others rectangular. The steep ascent leads to a plateau dominated by a newly built Tashi Gomang-style stupa, dedicated to the Eight Medicine Buddhas. There are two main buildings here: the large assembly hall and a more impressive Zangdok Pelri Lhakang, which was reconstructed in 1998. The former has a large central image of Padmasambhava, with Repkong murals depicting the Hundred Peaceful and Wrathful deities (left), and Vajrakila, Kurukulla and the 21 Taras (right). The images of the Zangdok Pelri Lhakhang are all sculpted by Chamdo artisans and the frescoes painted by Repkong artists. There is also a large photograph of Lama Chokyi Gyatso, who currently presides over the monastery. Other buildings in this impressively large complex include a protector chapel, a hall where dance costumes and masks are stored, a monastic college and a meditation hermitage.

The Shaman Festival in Tongren (Repkong) is a large-scale sacrificial performance activity prevailing among the local Tibetan and the Tu villages in Repkong area, which is held annually between June 17th and 25th of the lunar calendar.
Shaman Festival is a grand and festive occasion for local people to show their devotion and gratitude to the Mountain God. The Tibetan and Tu ethnic minorities in Tongren County worship the Mountain God as the immortal who protects them. The belief is believed to date back to the ancient worship of totems in the pre-civilization era of this part of Tibet.

Taktsang Lhamo is mostly a nomadic region. Large herds of yaks and sheep can be found and Tibetans live in traditional style tents during the summer and fall. Two large monasteries, Sertri and Kirti, are in the area. The town, lying at 3300m, is surrounded by mountains which are covered in snow for most of the year.
