text: We still had to climb up a good way to Anangba which lies 6670 feet high. Here too the individual khels are completely separate. Below one there is a small pond where the people have put in small fish. This pond has a role in certain gennas. At the entrance to one khel we saw several wooden posts stuck into the ground near a grave some of which had up to thirty incisions. (See page 196). Anangba is the name of the village founder (193) who's son Chirongchi, himself already an old man, greeted us.
