Manigango (马尼干戈) is a small town in Ganzi prefecture in Sichuan Province in south-west China. More or less a one horse (yak) town complete with Tibetan truck stop and curious and friendly gazzing nomads. Perhaps the most exotically Tibetan destination you will find in West Sichuan. Must see.
Located Halfway between Ganzi and Dege At 3800m in the middle of nowhere!
Mini buses pass from Ganzi,Dege And Shiqu.
