Tushita is always closed in December and January! It gets very cold here at that time and we don’t have any central heating. Tushita does not run any courses or drop-in sessions during this time.
Our library will have limited opening hours during first half of December.
From mid December our library will be also closed!
In general, December and especially January are not such good months to come to McLeod Ganj. Most guest houses do not have heating and with the snow come the power cuts! Many places have their winter break (the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives still holds classes in December, but not in January) and most of the guest houses and restaurants will be closed.
Most Westerners (and many Tibetans) escape the winter here and go to warmer places, where there are also more Dharma activities (especially in Bodhgaya!). This is the main season for Root Institute, our sister center in Bodhgaya www.rootinstitute.ngo.
For more ideas about things to do in our Winter Break, see our Links page.
Tushita opens again on February 13th, 2017. We hope to see you in the New Year!
