Gebchak Wangdrak Rinpoche began building this hermitage in 2012. It’s located on the outskirts of Nangchen township and will serve as a residence for Gebchak nuns who need to come to town for supplies, medical treatment or other work. Dongtsang Ritro is infused with blessings. It is said that the 12th century yogi, Tishri Repa Sherab Sengge, had his hermitage on this exact spot. Tishri Repa was a disciple of Barompa Darma Wangchuk – a disciple of Gampopa. Historically, the site is a vestige to Nangchen being hailed as “Gom De” or Land of the Meditators.
