  • Kongthong (Meghalaya): The villagers call a person by singing or whistling. A tune sung by a caller is a ‘name’ understood only by the villagers who responds to it. There is no proper motorable road that connects this village. The only way to reach the village is by trekking 10 kms on foot through narrow path which finally leads to this unique village.
