Shopa Castle

Shopa Castle

Shopa Castle, also called Xiuba Ancient Castle, is known as one of the most famous scenic spots in Nyang River Scenic Belt. With a history of over 1,600 years, it is also highly reputed as the oldest and well-preserved castle complex in Tibet.

Located in Gongbo'gyamda County, it is 55 kilometers away from the county seat. The whole Shopa Castle is composed of five castles at different heights, each of which is 30-50 meters away from each other, with an area of 800 square meters. The five-storey Praying Tower, used to pray for military triumph, is 28 meters high. There is a giant prayer wheel with a diameter of 3 meters in the tower. A large quantity of Tibetan would come here to pray for health, peace and happiness.

The Shopa Castle Scenic Spot integrates the cultural relics and natural landscapes together. It keeps attracting tourists for sightseeing and research on its ancient castles and local folk customs.
