Phulabi: as lonely as it is

Phulabi is tiny serene village in Zhemgang with only few households. 
Officially, it takes two days walk from the nearest point. The valley sits sleepily at the foot of giant mountains with no electricity and road, not even the farm road. With only a handful of dwellers, people live in prosperity. Yet, they are self-reliant and so kindhearted.  
I wondered what compulsion drove them to settle in such an inaccessible place. But undeniably, the place has many things to teach us.
