Gangri Tokar
the sacred mount
gently

lifts me

into the sky’s
descending
embrace

her falling waters
moistening

nourishing

all that once was
hard

dissolving all
that never
was

may these blessings
emanate

from every breath

that henceforth
passes
through

these lips

dharma rain
glistening

in my eyes

      Hello. I would like to ask a question about visiting this place. If you have any information, please share it. I would like to visit this place this year. Can you only get there with a group or can you get there alone on a tourist visa? And how long can you stay there?
      Do you have any contacts of people who have been there? I would like to talk to them and discuss all the possibilities of this trip. Thank you in advance.
