Gongza Ney

 

Gongza Ney and Gonpa, Toetsho Gewog. alt. 950 m. These are located at a holy place next to the Gongri (Drangme) Chu and linked to Guru Rimpoche, who was offered tea here when subduing a demon in the area. It is 3 hours walk from the Doksum town, 3 hrs downhill from Jangphu village and 1 hour from the Melongkhar bridge. There is a small temple built into an overhanging rock. The gonpa holds a petrified treasure chest, shoe of Guru Rimpoche, devil’s egg and many other relics. Many sacred sites are submerged in summer, so pilgrims mainly visit in winter and spring. The area is full of oddly shaped rocks and is hot and humid in summer
