Get To Sacramento As Your First Step
Sacramento is the closest major transportation hub to Aloka Vihara. From Sacramento you will take public transportation to Placerville, where someone from the vihara will pick you up.
After you have confirmed your visit with the guest nun and made your arrangements to Sacramento, the vihara manager will assist you in planning your trip from Sacramento to the vihara. Please email the vihara manager with your arrival date, time and the means of travel (i.e. Megabus) once you have your ticket.
Amtrak provides a combination of train and bus services connecting the greater San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento with the town of Placerville.
Sacramento International Airport is the closest airport to Placerville. If you are flying into other Bay Area airports, take a train or bus to Sacramento.
