I would like to do something similar at some point in my life. Do you know of any resources for traveling to more politically unstable areas (Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tibet)?
Scheduled from June 3-6, 2013, the pilgrimage will include visits to the three stupas in Colorado’s Crestone Valley, as well as visits to the Kagyu Shenpen Kunchab Bodhi Stupa in Santa Fe, the Kagyu Deki Stupa in Tres Orejas, NM, the Kagyu Mila Guru Stupa in El Rito, NM, and the Khang Tsag Choten in Santa Fe – reputed to be the first Tibetan stupa built in North America.

Turns out there is: Wat Florida Dhammaram in Kissimmee, Forida.

I'm planning to travel to Nepal and India late 2013 and early 2014 and would love to do the Buddhist Circuit. As a solo female traveler, I am thinking of joining tours for the pilgrimage as it may be a safer option. Does anyone have any tours they can recommend? Ideally, I'm looking for something that is led by a practicing Buddhist (not just a tour guide), who can provide Buddhist teachings or even meditation lessons in between.
