Footsteps of the Buddha Tour 2019

The itinerary was quite similar to our tour last year. We shortened the tour by a couple of days and took Sravasti off because of the long bus ride to get to it.

From that point of view, the visit to Clement Town is always an important part of the tour, an important part of the work that we do at TCEF. Continue reading
