Since agriculture is the mainstay of the population, the festivals celebrated by the people are closely connected with their occupation, thanking the gods\' providence and prayers for bumper crops. Most festivals have common rituals such as sacrificing of animals, particularly the "Mithun", in the non-bodic tribes.

The nearby villages offer a glimpse at close quarters of the culture and lifestyle of the Apa Tani, an enterprising and industrious tribal community which inhabits this valley. The Apa Tani villages are remarkable in a country where settlements are not permanent and tribal groups seem to be continuously on the move, for they are all concentrated in this valley. Seven villages, all situated within an hour\'s walking distance of each other, consist of houses built on wooden pile a few feet off the ground.
