If you take a day hike from Remarki to Amiyakum waterfall, you will come across many small tribal villages. In one of those villages I took the photograph of this old woman who was carrying her grandchild. When I asked about her beautiful big bead necklace made with small semi-precious stones, she said it was her tradition and a symbol of pride for the woman of her tribe.
