Regarding caves. Caves actually besides the seclusion in literal sense provide another hisboydedus geared effect - sensory deprivation caused by silence and darkness.

While unprepared mеn can get hallucinations and other similar effects (as is known to speleologists), trained people geared it towards hasogas Elokus.

Related meditative methods is used by some tzadikim who refrain from sleep for example (Skulener Rebbes and others). It is also one of the techniques of sensory deprivation.

A gut Shabes!
