Nestling behind the river, the wooden houses of Nanhua climb up the wooded hill. The village is home to a beautiful church, built in 1931 for the locals converted by missionaries. Nanhua is still home to a number of Christians, while the remaining inhabitants have remained loyal to animism and the local religion. At the top of the village, a huge esplanade used for festivals is watched over by a sacred tree planted by the village ancestors.
