These people live in balance with nature and profess animism.

The cemetery of the village is a mystical place, shrouded in a halo of legends and became famous thanks to a special tree that exudes an unusual aroma.

The local cemetery is not a burial site in the ground. Bali-Aga leave the bodies of deceased by the roots of Menyan tree. At the same time, no unpleasant odor emanates from the remains. Bali-Aga believe that if you burn the dead, as the Balinese Hindus do, the Batur volcano will get angry and begin to erupt.
Despite the unusual way of their life from our point of view, an unusual calmness is felt in the village, as if the whole world had found the long-awaited harmony.
