text: The climb up to Oting is quite hot, but even when we have arrived up there we are still in the fog. The two gaonburas and some older men are waiting at my camp. Gongs are already kept ready to receive the group with the head. I have plenty of time to eat some lunch before I can hear shouting and singing coming up.
