Traveller’s tale: While crossing the river near Aalo (also known as Along) via a hanging bridge, we noticed this group of men floating downstream in a raft. They seemed completely at ease travelling on a raft that was made of just logs bound together. We learnt that this was the usual mode for villagers living along the river to travel to the main town, at least one way (downstream). Otherwise, they would most likely have to walk.
