Ecotourism Tour USA 2012May 8, 2012.
December 5th-19th, 2012, a group of high-level Tibetan scholars and business people visited the USA on tour of ecotourism sites and educational institutions. They started in San Francisco, where they visited several parks, including the Marin Headlands, Mt. Tamalpais, and the Muir Woods National Monument, home of the tallest trees on earth. They then visited Yellowstone National Park where they saw bison, elk, coyotes, wolves, and more in their natural setting. Finally, they visited sites in Washington DC, and New York City, including the beautiful campus of Columbia University.
Favorite temple: Pabongkha Temple
There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Pabongkha is for me. I often went to visit the temple, when I was a little boy with my grandma. It would take hours for us to climb the mountain and visit the temple during those days, since we had no cars or buses available to reach a temple.more
