General site characteristics

Lhalung DruppukLha lung sgrub phug is located near the agricultural settlement of LhalungLha lung, on the east shore of the Dangra YutsoDang ra g.yu mtsho. The site has spectacular views of this stunning BönBon holy lake. Lhalung DruppukLha lung sgrub phug, a cave of two chambers with a substantial masonry façade, is closely associated with the BönBon saint Shakgom Tsültrim GyeltsenBshag sgom tshul khrims rgyal mtshan. This figure belonged to the Zhang Zhung NyengyüZhang zhung snyan rgyud lineage and lived sometime before 1300 CE. The BönBon text Dzokpa Chenpo Yangtsé LongchenRdzogs pa chen po yang rtse klong chen records that Shakgom TsültrimBshag sgom tshul khrims meditated at a secret place in LhalungLha lung.234
