Gangri Tokar is a mountain containing a hermitage comprised of numerous caves associated with Lonchenpa Drime Ozer, who resided there and wrote several of his major works while there. It is located above Shukseb Monastery to the south of Lhasa. The deity Dorje Pakmo (Vajravārāhī) is said to be visible from the mountain ridge itself.
