While on this pilgrimage, you will have access to sacred places and monasteries that are not usually open to foreign visitors. You will have the opportunity to meet Buddhist teachers from Bhutan and participate in ceremonies. There will be time to wander independently, to meditate daily and to discuss the various aspects of Buddhism. The pilgrimage is being done outside the regular tourist season in order to support the time needed for quiet reflection and contemplation. There will be a considerable amount of hiking to sacred sites.
