Hotel/guest house accommodation in the monasteries and local towns
There are usually only a very small number of guest house rooms in the various monasteries and the nearby small towns, and these are usually fully booked by the monasteries for their usual guests.
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 local monasteries to make as much space as possible available for teaching attendees. Therefore, if you have friends in the monasteries, 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.
