The people of Kongthong don't have names and they've never had any. Instead, the mother names her child with a unique lullaby/whistle when it's is born and the villagers address each other with their unique tunes. If you think about the science behind this, the deep valleys and thick forests don't allow the sound of regular names to travel as far or as clear so this technique makes total sense. The winding road to Kongthong takes you through thick forests, valleys and meadows where you can find waterfalls almost everywhere. At the campsite, you can play football with the locals on a huge open ground among clouds and if you need accommodation beside the car's rooftop tents there are basic huts available.
