Just below the Mangalbare Bazaar of Sankhuwasabha, there is a mesmerizing meadow along Tehrathum section of the hills.

There remains a mysterious dark hole in the middle of the meadow, locally known as Bhwang Danda. This hole is located in Menchchyayem Rural Municipality, Ward Number 5, in Tehrathum.

''Many cattle have fallen into this hole since a very long time'', said a local shepherd, ''This hole is very deep and long, I guess.'' He also said that warm vapor comes out from it in the winter, which indicates that the the hole is very deep down.

Dojaraj Gautam, ward chairperson of Menchchyayem Rural Municipality-5 and a local residing downhill village stated something similar. ''Bhwang Danda has been a matter of mystery for all the residents in Morang village and we are curious for its exploration, and to know more about its archeological angles'', said Gautam, ''We have already written to the concerned authorities to start its exploration, at the earliest.''

Samrat Thapa, from Sikdem, a village close to the Bhwang Danda, said that a scientific and modern exploration is necessary for the better understanding of this area. ''So far, as I know, this is a cave and I have an experience of entering few steps downward during my childhood'', said Thapa, ''However, I could not go deeper due to the fear of extreme darkness.''

Experts working in caving can find more details, shared Thapa. ''If cavers come to explore the dark hole, this will probably be the longest cave in Province 1, if not all over Nepal'', Thapa shared, ''This needs immediate exploration.'' Its perfect location along the TMJ corridor, which is the capital of rhododendron in Nepal, would work as a catalyst to unleash its touristic potential and income generation both for locals and the local government.
