All these groups speak different dialects and have different costumes. The women, mostly elderly ones, also we spotted a few young girls, have TATTOOED FACES, with very different patterns. We count about 5 different ways of putting the tattoos on: dots, spider, lines, curls, almost black. Walks to each village take about 1 to 1 ½ hours. The CHINS are mostly Christians with a variety of all beliefs from Methodists to Catholics. In every village one will see houses decorated with buffalo corns. These are from animals called MITHAN a cross between a domestic cow and a wild GAUR. Each time such an animal is slaughtered a kind of wooden pillar decorated with all sort of ornaments is erected in front of the house. In addition a stone table, which is also used as cover for urns is placed nearby. Some of the houses have up to 10 such pillars and in some villages the stone tables are all gathered together (like a cemetery) whereas in others they are near each home. Pick nick on the way.
