WATCH: An Entire Town Deep Inside A Cave? Meet The World’s Last ‘Cave People’

This is pretty cool stuff right here and a great way to take a break from the doom and gloom of everyday news!

Nestled deep within the mountains of the Guizhou province in China, there is a cave that hosts an entire town full of people dwelling deep within the cave.

The town supports a population of 100 individuals, divided among 18 households, and mostly relies on tourism as a source of income.

The nearest village is several hours away, and the people living in the cave have no access to modern amenities.

Still, they manage to grow their food and build their own homes inside a cave that is comparable to the size of a sports stadium.

Take a look at this blast from the past, would you adopt a simpler way of life like the one below?

According to The Sun:

The residents are mostly descendants of Miao people – an ethnic minority in China – who used the cave as a hideaway during the civil war.

In 1949, the war came to an end but the villagers decided to stay despite the challenges of being cut off from the rest of the world.

Individuals provided fascinating images of life inside the cave and a snapshot into the way some of our ancestors used to live.

These cave villages are nothing new in China, as revealed by this Epoch Times article:

Near the village of Shiyan Beicun in Zhejiang province, China, lies the Longyou caves—an extensive, magnificent, and rare underground realm, considered in China to be “the ninth wonder of the ancient world.”

The Longyou grottoes, which are thought to date back at least 2,000 years, represent one of the largest underground excavations of ancient times.
