For ages the use of Cannabis has been an integral part of their lives, from medicine to footwear.

Most of the villagers want to stay away from rest of the world but slowly it is changing and people have started getting mixed up with the outside world. Leather is a taboo here and so as touching which is strictly prohibited for outsiders.

Weather conditions can change rapidly during the course of a day. This can make a big difference to your safety, particularly if you are ill-equipped. In bad weather, keep close together as a group and watch the weather! Mist, falling snow, rain or wind can quickly confuse your sense of direction. If you are poorly dressed for bad weather, exposure can rapidly deplete your concentration and energy.
