text: Yimpang was founded from Sangpurr and is mainly inhabited by Yimsungr. Formerly there were quite a lot of Chang living among them but now their number has dwindled to three households. In addition there are several Kalyu Kengyu in Yimpang. We left this village feeling as though we had not been very popular and we were certain that its inhabitants gave a sigh of relief when we finally went away.
