Some of them live in several subdistricts in other regencies, such as Serbejadi Subdistrict, Simpang Jernih Subdistrict in East Aceh Regency and Beutong Subdistrict in Nagan Raya Regency. Their homeland lies in the Barisan Mountains which has elevations of over 12,000 feet and extends more than one thousand miles. The Gayonese language has four dialects: Lut, Serbejadi-Lukup, Lut and Luwes. Their language does not have a writing system, but folk tales, stories and poetry are passed down in oral tradition.
