Tucked away in the Himalayan forests Raute tribe is the last nomadic tribe of Nepal. It has no permanent location, and they often move between camps. Living like hunter-gatherers, and eat the meat of monkeys, langurs and macaques. If someone dies in a tribe, they will immediately collect belongings and move to a new location in order to avoid the wrath of the evil spirits.

In January 2016 the Danish photographer Jan Moller Hansen spent three days together with the residents of the tribe, who call themselves kings of the forest, and made a series of interesting photos. At the time of the shooting tribe had 156 people.
