JatingaThe nearby village of Jatinga is popularly known as the place where multiple species of birds mysteriously "commit suicide", peaking at the end of the monsoon. Ornithologists have since found that the birds don't commit suicide but are killed by becoming disoriented during the dark, foggy and windy night sky. The birds are attracted to the lights of the cities and are hit with bamboo poles by villagers believing that spirits from the sky are terrorising them. Despite this, the suicide myth is still popularly believed.
Chavang KutThe Kuki ethnic group in Haflong celebrate Chavang Kut, the rice harvest festival, on the 1st of November every year wearing traditional attire and performing vivid dances.
