The name ‘Khempalung’ is inspired by a holy cave of the same name in the Sankhuwasabha district (close to Makalu National Park) in Eastern Nepal. In the Tibetan language ‘Khempalung’ means the ‘hidden cave’. The spiritual belief is Guru Padmasambhava meditated in this cave, which was hidden from the rest of the world. Myth holds that when famine and disease hit the world ‘Khempalung’ shall be revealed, and will be the only place on earth where natural medicines, food and water will be available to save human race from extinction.
