I have visited this place twice. Once in 2015 and in 2019. I love the boat ride to Trunyan. Walking to the burial place was somewhat unpleasant for some people but one has to understand their cultural practice. It’s a rather scattered about place so it is not like a neat cemetery. You will see personal objects strewn about, bones and the area where the bodies are laid out, heads usually covered. Despite the skulls, bony skeletons, I was not turned off.
