Undergrounf Treasures in the Himalayas

Legends of hidden underground libraries, treasures and superb handicrafts related to Sambhala are constantly talked about in Asia and are described as secret repositories of ancient knowledge.

Earlier civilizations believed that it was necessary to preserve the science and art of cultures, and not to erase them with natural disasters or war or for other incomprehensible reasons. Tibetan tradition acknowledges that ‘time capsules’ and precious, silk-imported notebooks lie hidden in the most secluded and hidden places of the ‘divine’ mountain Kangchenjunga, the third highest peak in the Himalayas.

Nicholas Roerich discovered that one stone door leads to what he called the ‘five sacred treasures of the great snow’, and his guides advised him not to try to enter the premises ‘because anything revealed before the time determined by fate brings untold damage ‘. In the Altai Mountains, Roerich also discovered that the foothills of the Himalayas hide entrances that lead to underground corridors and rooms deep below the surface and where enigmatic handicrafts and exotic treasures have been hidden since the beginning of world history.


Roerich was also told about a secret underground storage at the Karakoram pass in the Himalayas at an altitude of 5,944 meters. His main guide revealed to him that great treasures are kept under the snow ridge and told him that even the lower members of the community know about the huge caves that keep ancient handicrafts. He asked Roerich if he knew of any books in the outside world that recorded the location of those underground chambers. The wise old messenger had spent many years in the mountains and wanted to know from Roerich why foreigners, who claim to know so much, could not find conspicuous entrances to the underground palaces on the Karakoram Pass. During his 12 years in northern Tibet in the mid-19th century, Chinese explorer Jia Chun-Pingwa spoke with Buddhist monks who claimed that there was a vast network of underground galleries and museums in a secluded part of the Altyn Tagh ridge that housed a collection of several million enchanting handicrafts. vigilant guards.

In his memoirs, Jia wrote about an underground museum that houses various ‘objets d’art’ that describe the millennial development of humanity on this planet.

He described that the entrance to this series of chambers is on the left side of a deep gorge in which there are several impressive houses that mark the location of perhaps the world’s largest museum. Jia was not the only one to describe this collection. She is safe from intrusion and nothing will disturb the peace in which her hundred-year-old works rest … the entrances are hidden, and the treasuries with manuscripts and handicrafts lie deep in the bowels of the earth. A local resident said that people from this area show up at their market with unusual, very old money and no one remembers when such money was in use there. He believed that all these secret places were connected with the riddle of Sambhala. Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891), a traveler and mystic born in Russia, founder of the Theosophical Society in 1875, alluded to the existence of Sambhala, actualizing it among Western admirers of the occult.

She claimed that sages from the East could send ancient documents to the world that would shake the opinions of historians. She saw secret warehouses in northern India and wrote that initiated yogis knew about the vast network of underground libraries that stretched from cave temples across northern Tibet. The Vatican archives keep rare reports of missionaries from the early 19th century stating that in times of crisis, leaders of various countries sent their delegations to the Himalayas to seek advice from ‘Mountain Geniuses’. However, these writings do not reveal exactly where these representatives traveled.


An undated manuscript by Monseigneur Delaplace, written about 120 years ago, supports the belief of Central Asian sages that people of special knowledge live in inaccessible and secluded parts of the Himalayas. The Tibetan epic about Gesar Khan predicted that some hidden corridors would be revealed at the time ‘when steel ships will fly in the sky’, and Madame Blavatsky said that some hidden manuscripts would be carefully and intentionally discovered in a spiritually richer future.


The Tibetan belief in enlightened people from the underworld, who have been seen on several occasions with torches in the dark, is very strong. Rocrich spoke about a man of great appearance who arrived in Tibet from Siberia with his caravan and proudly stated: I will prove that the story of the underground people is not the fruit of imagination. I will take you to the entrance to their underground kingdoms. Whether he did so is not recorded in Roerich’s books.


Throughout Asia, in the deserts and from the oceans to the Urals, we find a strange legend about holy people who live in mysterious underground cities. And while the ravages of time have torn away many pages of the story of human life on this planet, these ancient legends testify to the real existence of secret treasures and isolated treasures full of rare records that record knowledge from ancient times.
