From that day, men in the village started practicing jumping with lianas so women couldn't outwit men ever again. So they built 28-meter high tower for jumping. Before jump, every man has ritual bath and then climbs a tower. Then his wife is brought to tower where she has to listen husband's complaints in front of whole village. After speech, man has to jump, head down, to proof his manhood. The tradition has retained until today and has become a touristic attraction. The western world hasn't discovered this custom until 1955. from the article of Irving i Electa Johnson in National Geographic magazine.
