Gashi Lhamo’s house or Jiaju Uncle Zeng Ngare’s Reception Station sits on the hillside. Gashi Lhamo did not grow up in Jiaju. She was from a poor household and dropped out as a junior middle school student due to poverty. 

Later she got married and started to run Jiaju Uncle Zeng Ngare’s Reception Station with her husband’s family. 

At the beginning, the business was not very good, because only a few dishes were available in the inn and tourists’ demands could not be fulfilled. 

Afterwards, Gashi Lhamo signed up for a senior Chinese cuisine training course in Chengdu with the support of government.
