Naming themselves the King of the Forest, the Raute is a community of no more than 150 people. They live in temporary tents and camps in remote jungles in Western Nepal, each place for between two weeks and two months, or a day after a fellow member dies.
The Raute are hunter gatherers. They are known for subsistence hunting of monkeys. The Raute use tree trunks for the making of bowls and boxes, which will later be traded for rice, clothes, etc.
