The mountain is also the historic guerilla hideouts when there were wars against invaders in Acheh, I have a sad memory about this mountain. My oldest sister, Tengku Nyak Adyan,died in Mam pree during the Achehnese resistance against Javanese in 1950s, when my late brother, Tengku Zainul Abidin, retreated to Mampree with the family members and stayed here for several years. My sister was here with my brother and other members of my family. Also my late mother was here. But I do have the remains of my ancestors scattered on e-very mountain top and every valley all over Acheh as a consequent of wars with invaders.
