We are staying the night in the village of Pampal, I estimate the population to be about 600, but no more. This place truly is reclused. The people here seem to hold some unorthodox religious views, this is perhaps the reason for their seclusion. Do they seek shelter from the devotees of the Celestial Lords? If so this village seems the ideal location. The people welcomed us into their homes and shared what they could, a spot near the fire and rose hip soup.
