According to the ancient traditions and experiential accounts of many, there exists a hidden mystic hermitage deep in the Himalayan ranges, where many mahāyogīs, ṛṣi-munis, siddhas and sages reside.
In many purāṇas and itihāsas, it's known as siddhāśrama. Vaśiṣṭha takes śrīrāma to such residence of all the sages and seers.

In the siddha paramparās of himālaya, the more grosser physical Himalayas are only the outer scaffolding. There are believed to be certain points.
These points lead to inner sanctum of Himalayas which is known as gurūmaṇḍala or "the institution/hermitage of gurus". Here all the great gurus and mystics dwell as their permanent resting place.
It is said that one can see great ṛṣis and yogīs such as vashiṣṭa, viśvāmitra, atri jamadagni, gautama, bharadvāja, kaśyapa, shaiva yogīs, buddhas, nātha siddhas, jina siddhas etc all living in their perfect bodies - as they were.
They come to the more outer Himalayas if need be. Only those few spiritually adept practitioners can ever find access to the gupt himālayas. Śiva, as ādigurū, is said to make visits to this mystical hermitage to give darśana to these enlightened beings.
In Tibetian Buddhist traditions, this is known as Shambhala and in some others as Nghe-Beyul Khembalung. Here, some hidden monasteries have been created by the enlightened yogīs of their traditions such as Padmasambhava.
There are believed to be mainly two gurūmaṇḍalas. One deep in the Himālaya, the other being the Western Ghats where the South Indian Siddhars dwell. Here also, there's an institution of Gurus that have been mainly active in that part of the subcontinent.
In the gurūmaṇḍala of south, agastyamuni along with other Tamil siddhars and ṛṣis, resides and guides the spiritual practitioners on their journey. When Śiva had imparted the divine knowledge to 7 ṛṣis, the weight of earth became more on northern side - this caused a tilt.
So śiva sent agasthiar to the south. There's a whole story about Vindhya mountains bowed down to Agastya and how he never came back. Vindhya mountains still are waiting for Agastya to come back but he never will as he made a gurūmaṇḍala down south and now resides there.
This was about the secret realm of gurūmaṇḍalas in Himalayas and southern mountain ranges.
