Describing Chhomrung would be utterly incomplete without mentioning its active Mother’s Group. They effectively replace the state around here and also oversee village cleaning, trail maintenance and trail construction. They also run evening cultural shows here which is good fun for the visitors and a fund raising event for the Mother’s Group. It will be a evening well spent, immersing yourself in local folk tunes while at the same time helping out with a worthy cause.
