The Hidden Cave
The Hidden Cave in the East (Tib. ཤར་ཕྱོགས་སྦས་ཕུག, sharchok bé puk, Wyl. shar phyogs sbas phug) is one of the four sacred caves of Sikkim. It is the cave to the East of Tashiding. It is about one hour walk from Ravongla. Local people know it as ‘Sangma Né’ or ‘Sangma Gompa’. Pilgrims can also see a Guru Rinpoche statue nearby.
The cave is deep, and visitors will need good torch-lights, enough candles to mark the path to find their way out, and clothes they don’t mind getting dirty.
