text: On a steep path we climbed through the jhum fields, rice terraces and the forest down to Sagazumi. It lies much further down than Sathazumi at the end of a mountain ridge, the sides of which are divided into numerous terraces leading from the valley up to the village in beautifully curved lines, right up to the village gate
