The traditional village of None lies in the mountains in the interior of West Timor at 785m of altitude, 18km east of Soe. There are a number of round, beehive huts in the rock fort, a circular area surrounded by a wall of stones which in the past provided protection to the villagers. Until two generations ago these engaged in headhunting. Nowadays the villages live in modern huts located outside the rock fort and welcome tourists who come to visit the place. The village chief dresses up for the occasion as a headhunter.
