Call for Participation for a Tibet Trip


Some of our FG18 attendees consider self-organizing (not through the conference) a week long trip to Tibet right after FG18 (May 20-May 27).   The trip will visit top Tibet attractions, including Potala palace, Jokhang temple, Sera monastery, Yamdrok lake, Tashi lunpo monastery,  and Mt.

Please note the following:
