Lawudo is a remote retreat center in the Mount Everest (Solu Khumbu) region of Nepal. It is a sacred place built around a small cave in which the Lawudo Lama meditated in the 1930s and 1940s. He was said to have attained high realizations there. The current reincarnation of the Lawudo Lama is Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, the Spiritual Director of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT). Rinpoche advised Ven. Amy to teach there whenever possible. He stated "It's the most important thing you can do for the WORLD!"

This pilgrimage to Lawudo with Ven. Amy will allow you to enjoy the stunning scenery and a challenging trekking experience while also receiving teachings, having a short retreat and visiting some of the holy places in the area.
