The only other reason why you need to visit Nias Island (if you are not a surfer) is to visit this village where stone jumping is regularly performed. Avoid weekend as the place can be packed. This is one of the oldest villages in the island where the people still live in the traditional wooden houses. If you are lucky, you may still meet the Head of the Tribes who still live in the main house in the compound. The jumpers got their training when they are 16 years and would usually 'retire' after they get married.
