They descended from the top around 20 years ago looking for better pastures for the cattle and to get near the water points which are scarce in the region. It is a rich culture and one of their symbol is the unique houses built in wood and adobe, and decorated with snail shells and drawings. After the visit, we will camp in their territory. Tents.
