Why the Soviets Sponsored a Doomed Expedition to a Hollow Earth Kingdom

How a search for the hidden land of Shambhala turned into a geopolitical power play. By Dimitra Nikolaidou (Atlas Obscura) In December of 1923, two unlikely travelers arrived in Darjeeling, India intent on finding what could not possibly exist: Shambhala, a kingdom located inside a hollow earth.

Humanity’s Dark Fascination With the Hollow Earth

Few of the great fears held by humankind in our path to modernity would rival that of our long dread for the darkness. Fortunately, with the daily cycle of the Earth’s rotation, we are only bathed in that blackness for a few hours at a time. Hence, over the long course of its evolution, humanity has worked mostly by the waking hours, having learned to hide ourselves away as the light recedes, and take our rest during the hours where dangers of the dark become most prevalent. However, there are places where the darkness may linger indefinitely. Despite the grottos and caves that have served as… Read More
