Rongme Karmo Taktsang (Tib. རོང་མེ་དཀར་མོ་སྟག་ཚང་། , Wyl. rong me dkar mo stag tshang) is a treasure site of Chokgyur Lingpa and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo to the northeast of Dzongsar Monastery. Ju Mipham Gyatso spent thirteen years there in retreat. Monks from the Khamshe College currently use the hermitage for five-year retreats. The site is associated with Padmasambhava. .[1]

Rongme Karmo Taktsang, the “White Tiger’s Nest at Rongme,” is situated at Meysho near the capital Dergé in the eastern Tibetan province of Kham. It is one of thirteen Tiger’s Nests—the places where Padmasambhava manifested in the wrathful form of Guru Dorje Drolö. Today, only five of them seem to be known.[2]
