"Wudu is the top area of Rukuthi. It's Percy Loogatha's Country and he was King Alfred's small brother. We were told not to go there as it is dangerous country by our parents. Only men are allowed inside the cave, they have to be undressed and when women who are pregnant cross the salt pan they have to walk side ways. Today we still keep to these laws. People who come from Wudu are called Wudunathi."
