Tassajara - Oldest Budhist Monastery in U.S.A. (3.0 Stars ***)

Tassajara is the oldest budhist monatery in the United States. In order to reach the retreat one must pass a highly steep and treacherous road. It makes the Mt. Washington Highway look huge. Much of the road is dirt and with steep cliffs and no guard rails. Originally, the camp was a luxury retreat for only a select few. When the resort failed, it was then converted into a retreat. There are both natural and hot springs. The kitchen serves mostly vegetarian foods. It is strongly recommended to take the shuttle to the resort and leave your car parked near the entrance of the dirt road.
