Visit at the buddhist monastery

Date: 
15.09.2013 - 10:00
City: 
Montreux

Hi everyone

We have the possbility to visit the buddhist monestary at the Mont-Pèlerin near Montreux. Unfortunately they still have semester vacation then so probably we won't have a guide. Still we may have a look at the monastery and the surroundings. It has a great view down the hill over the lake. If we are lucky though we may have a discussion with the buddhists residing there.

We will depart from the Hotel at 09:20 and be there at about 10:30. We would leave at about 14:00 but that is not fix.
