If you are interested in going on this pilgrimage please book soon as it will take some time to obtain the permit for visiting Sera Je Monastery. Further details are below.

As part of your Pilgrimage you will be visiting Sera Jey Monastery.  The Monastery is a ‘restricted area’ and we will need to apply as a group for a permit which will come from the Indian Government.  The permit takes at least 3 months so it would be appreciated if you are able to commit to the Pilgrimage by the 15th September so that we can get the permit in time for you to visit.  Once you have made your booking and paid your deposit Ekno Travels will send you a PAP form to fill out and return it to them and they will submit them on behalf of the group.
