text: We reached the village Kongan at half past ten and entered it through the gate of the upper morung. Each one of the entrances into the village leads through a gateway. A bamboo palisade is added onto each side of it. The gateway is well built and includes a proper roof. Kongan is a peculiar village of special attraction. It breaks up into four settlements each on a totally different level.
