As we hiked up the trail there were many places that had been marked as significant points of interest. One of these was a place on the mountainside where the tigress Guru Riponoche was riding stopped and left her impressions in the rock. Here one could light a butter lamp and say a prayer for good luck. Below is a picture of the tigress's eye print. (A footprint is also in the rock, but set too far back for me to get a decent picture.) After lighting the candle, a monk pours lavender holy water into your palm. The tradition is to drink half of it and the other half is poured/patted on top of your head.
