1 of 2 Stuart Jay Raj เหนือชั้น 1000แปลก Thai Bali Dead Bodies (EN Subs)

Languages: Thai, Balinese, Bahasa Indonesia สจวท เจ ราชพาไป บาหลี ประเทศอินโดนีเซีย ไปพบกับต้นไม้ประหลาดและความเชื่อแปลกๆของคนบนเกาะบาหลี http://stujay.blogspot.com Direct link: http://www.manytv.com/videos/10461-_1000_.php This is the first in a series of clips from Bali, Indonesia. Bali is different to the rest of Indonesia in that it is predominantly Hindu. The Trunyan village (from Taruh – Place / Menyan – Corpse) is renowned for the strange practice of placing dead bodies to decompose next to a special tree that is said to absorb the smell of the rotting corpses into the tree! While I was there, there were 11 corpses decomposing, but no smell! … believe it? .. take a look at the clip and judge for yourself 🙂 (Shame there’s no such thing as smellovision!) The trip there was interesting. At first, our guide refused to – there are rumours of people being robbed and even murdered going out there. In the end, it was an issue of $$$MONEY$$$. We paid ‘security’ money to the right people and the hospitality there was fantastic. If you’re planning a trip there, make sure you have a few rupiah spare for ‘extra costs’ that suddenly appear once you arrive … and again when you try to leave!. The Trunyan village is deep up into the lake between the volcanoes Gunung Batur / Gunung Agung.
