  • Crazy drive on bumpy dirt road to visit but the religious significance of the site makes the effort and time worthwhile.  more »
  • A sacred place in Eastern Bhutan. Feels good to wander around without the hustle and bustle of throngs of tourists. Don't forget to attempt to lift a stone and carry it around the black rock 3 times.....  more »

  • At tongmizhangsa, at an altitude of 820m, it is located among paddy fields below the road to Tashiyangtse, around an hour’s drive from Trashigang. Guru Rinpochhe meditated under the big rock and subdued an evil demon here. The Gom Kora Tshechu is held from the 8th to 11th of the 2nd Bhutanese month and is visited by locals and tribals from Merak-Sakten and Arunachal Pradesh (India), who circumambulate the gonpa throughout the night. Relics inside the gonpa include a garuda egg. The remaining lengths of chains from the iron bridge in Doksum are kept in the monastery. There is also a steep rock to climb for blessings and a crawl through a narrow passage in the rock, to get cleansed of your sins.
  • Holy place blessed by Guru Rinpoche
