There are a number of Tibetan-style stupas in the San Luis Valley, on both sides of the state border. In New Mexico there’s one near the Lama Foundation, and in Crestone I believe there are three. I visited two recently:
One is fairly close, the Stupa of Enlightenment (Jangchub Chorten), see above, and the other one, the Tashi Gomang or Karmapa’s Stupa is as far as you can go at the end of a windy rocky dirt road. There’s place sto eat and visit, and kind people to ask for directions, in the tiny town of Crestone, Colorado (off Moffat on highway 17, north of Alamosa), see here for orientation.
I love the Tashi Gomang Stupa, also known as the 16th Karmapa’s Stupa:
Such a magnificent region. For more photos, click here.
