Sumthrang village is surrounded with Five sacred significant landscapes. A cliff like a piled text at north, conch shaped landscape at the south, pure holy spring water at the west and swastika (yungdrung) shaped rock bed at the east.
Here let me explain a little i know about the this wonderful cliff overlooking the village from its north which is one of the five sacred landscapes (with others to follow later).
The cliff have a two parts of Sherling the Eastern yard and Nubling the western yard with hermits pitched at both the yards, serene for those with devotion to practice meditation.
The cliff and its beautiful surrounding enjoy reverence of the locals as far as I know since my child-hood for its significance, and one of the major water source for Sumthrang's drinking water from the spring waters below the cliff is protected under its revered position.
The bush below the cliff is frequented by a folk of blood peasants in winter and there are some Nyes believed and revered. The fir jungle above the cliff is the home for various birds and it also holds one of the only two water shades in the territory of Sumthrang. Although its territory is limited, there are abundance of diversity in plant and animals that one can find in its own capacity.
