Please be aware that the following is all of the information that the Jangchup Lamrim Teaching Organizing Committee currently has about accommodation. We deeply regret that we are unable to assist further with the accommodation arrangements of the thousands of expected attendees.
Hotel/guest house accommodation in the monasteries and Mundgod town
There are only a very small number of guest house rooms in Mundgod town and at the various monasteries in Mundgod, and these will be fully booked by the monasteries for their usual guests.
Hotel/guest house accommodation in Hubli
In Hubli (45km from Mundgod) there are many options for accommodation in all price ranges. It is expected that there will be enough accommodation in Hubli for all teaching attendees upon your arrival, without the need to book in advance. Click here for just a few of the many accommodation options available in Hubli.
Private accommodation in the monasteries
During teachings with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the monastery rules concerning visitors are changed and all visitors (including nuns, lay men and lay women) are permitted to stay in the monks’ personal residences.
The Jangchup Lamrim Teaching Organizing Committee will encourage all the monasteries in Mundgod to make as much space as possible available for teaching attendees. Therefore, if you have friends in Gaden or Drepung Monasteries (or other Tibetan monasteries such as Sera, who will have contacts in their corresponding khangtsens of Gaden and Drepung), you are encouraged to request their assistance in arranging private accommodation within the monastery. However, please note that it is usually only possible to arrange private accommodation through a local friend; it is unlikely that you will be able to arrange private accommodation by phoning or sending an email to the monasteries unless you personally know someone living in that monastery.
