There is a big sky cave halfway up the mountain, and there are more than 20 families living in the cave, as well as cattle, sheep, and houses. It is a world of Taoyuan, isolated from the world.
It is hard to imagine modern society, or even this era, where there was such a remote place, apart from the Amazon rainforest and the depths of the African savanna, that there would have been a message of civilization if there were not lights in the depths of the cave. I almost thought I had crossed into the cave of the mountain and the lair of the Yuanmou people.
After leaving the Getu River, the process of crossing the mountains to the Zhongdong Miao Village, it is possible to understand why the Miao people at that time put the village in the mountainside of the cave. Climb the mountain high through the large field of corn, find the hole in the time of about an hour, but the scenery on the way is pleasant, walk and see it does not feel tired. The hole is not so big, but very high, a room of bamboo rafts into the deep of the cave, do not look at these houses look very "thin", some even two floors, the function of the room is also complete. And there is a school in the hole. When we reached the cave, we did not see much of the residents, because of course many young people left long ago, and do not know if there will be a few years to live here.
Zhongdong is the last cave tribe in China and all of Asia, and there are 21 families living in it. It is 161 kilometers from Guiyang, where Miao Village of Zhongdong lives high. Scenic area includes big piercing cave scenic spot, big river scenic spot, small piercing cave scenic spot, demon rock scenic spot and many independent scenic spots.
At present, there are 18 Miao family living in the cave, the original cave there is a hope primary school, the residents of the cave is very enthusiastic and simple chat said that the conditions here too hard to support the teacher run, the school moved down the hill, the school basketball court is still. The government built a house down the hill and hoped that they would move down the hill, but they felt that the cave was warm in winter and cool in summer. Each household spends only about 10,000 a year, and depends on working outside, if not working outside, some families can not afford to eat [sucking mouth] are their own fish and vegetables, the average life expectancy is more than 90.
