The Directional Private Handstamps are illustrated in Dhanke´s
handbook.

Also in an article by Wolfgang C. Hellrigl.

I have checked the illustrated one here (Lhasa to Phari) in both
scources without finding it mentioned.

The other side of the cover is stamped with a 4 tr. of the 1933
issue to cover registration. Tied by a Lhasa type VIII pmk.

I had a look at my collection, references and literature. This kind of directional handstamp is also unknown to me.
Congratulation to your find.

While checking thru my collection, I also found a cover with an unrecorded directional handstamp, in addition, the cover bears an unrecorded registration marking. Both markings are on a registered cover from LHASA

On the image, the upper registration handstamp is 16 mm high and not recorded by Hellrigl.  The lower one is 14 mm high an recorded as (what I believe) T96
