rainbow over Gampo AbbeyEach summer, we offer tours of the Abbey where you can see the shrine room where we practice, visit our wonderful library, learn about our lineage and activities, and get a glimpse of the life of the monastics and lay residents living at the Abbey.

2015 tours begin July 6th and end on August 28th. They are offered Monday to Friday at 1:30 and 2:30 pm (two tours per day).

If you have arrived outside the tour hours you are welcome to walk around the grounds and to visit the Stupa of Enlightment. No reservation is required for a tour. Tours are free, all donations are greatly appreciated.

See our Traveling page for driving directions.
