Travel preparations

 

Overnight stays and overnight accommodations

Dhamma Yatra India/Nepal/Myanmar

Our overnight stays will be in mid-class guest houses, pilgrimage accomodations and monasteries. The latter can be simple but good, mostly with attached bathrooms. We will sleep in double rooms, possibly in rooms having more than 2 or 3 beds. It might happen that women and men stay segregated. Couples should keep this in mind. Stays in such accommodations support the character of a pilgrimage a lot.

Trekking Tsum Valley

2 person tents during the trek.

 

Food

Dhamma Yatra India/Nepal/Myanmar

Breakfast will be prepared mostly by ourselves (fruit, cereal, bread, jam, coffee, tea). We also look forward to little suprises for breakfast (you bring on your own): i.e. nuts, dried fruit, granola honey, jam, Nutella, peanut butter, canned bread, tea, coffee, etc.
We will arrange a suitable restaurant for lunch. It can be a roadhouse on the way.
During dinnertime a lot of interesting things happen at the sites (i.e. ceremonies, sittings). As such, there is no prearranged dinner schedule and you are free to arrange your own meal, we will however suggest options.

Mineral water will be brought by our bus crew and will be available at a small fee.
