Answer: Apatani tribe
.
The Apatani tribe live in the Ziro valley in Arunachal Pradesh. The tribe's ritual of women wearing large nose plugs and tattooing thick lines on their face, is a drying ritual, that hasn't been practised since 1974.
.
It is believed that the ritual started since Apatani women were really beautiful and were often abducted by men of the neighbouring tribes. To protect them, the village elders decided to start inserting nose plugs and tattoo the faces of the women when they grew 10 years old. Since the Apatani’s have no written record of their history, and their traditions are passed on orally to the next generation, the legend of why the ritual started cannot be verified by any text. The ritual was banned by the Apatani Youth Association in 1974.

Sanapur Lake
Hampi
.
Sanapur Lake formed by an irrigation reservoir is a great excursion point from Hampi.
The natural lake with stunning boulder hills all around makes the theme of this locale.
The road you'll take to reach Sanapur Lake will wind through paddy and banana plantations , before it wiggle around massive boulders precariously overhanging onto the road. Drive to Sanapur Lake and the ambient around the lake has character, you'll savour.
You'll also find local village folks offer coracle ride (fun ride) on the lake.
