Currently, the crew of volunteers to repair the roof of Rinpoche's cabin and the Thogal cabin-- primarily Jeremy, Nary and Jeff Smith, continue to work during these cooler days. 

Here's a photo of the new chimney thanks to Jeff Smith taken by Jeremy the other day.

Our most remote cabin- the Thogal Cabin is located at the top of the road, a 15-20 minute walk from the bath house. It is a large cabin, with extra inflatable mattresses up to four people could stay here on the first and second floor. The road leading to this cabin is not accessible by car, however the geko can transport practitioners and their luggage to this cabin with the ATV.

Amenities Include:
Two story retreat cabin: first floor has kitchen, wood burning stove, and large living room space. Second floor has a single bed, table and altar with a large rug for practice space.
Single bed, pillows and blankets
Basic cooking utensils, dishes, pots and pans
Gas cooking stove
Kitchen table
Jugs of potable water
Fire pit in yard

Next up is the road paving schedule beginning on October 3rd, 2016 and will continue until October 10th, 2016 on the road leading from the parking lot up to the land at Khandroling. No cars will be allowed up the road during this time. The gate will be locked.   

Paving the Road from the Parking Lot to the Vajra Hall:
The road construction is an important project that will facilitate the presence of vehicles up to the Vajra Hall and many other kinds of equipment needed to maintain the infrastructure on Upper Khandroling. 

For those of you who have already supported this project, we are grateful. Further donations are still needed to complete this work. Please make your donations here online .
