“It was a lovely weekend as it always is at Menla! Thank you. It truly is a special place in many ways. The people who work there and run the place really do make the difference, as they are all very nice and kind. I’ve been to other like places where that typically isn’t the case. I realized this past weekend that just being at Menla is simply awesome!”
“Menla offers integrative healing—merging Tibetan, Ayurvedic and other holistic traditions—along with fresh clean air, hikes and perhaps the most authentic Tibetan treatment therapies this side of Lhasa.”
