text: Counted Pungithung and went on to the Dayang, about 9 miles. The Morakcho and Chidi Gaonburas came in to meet me. Pungithung has a particularly fine Mingethung, which still contains a skull, raided from Nungtsung before the country was taken over, and sheltered from the weather, and decay, in a hollow among the roots of the tree.
