Caveman families

Stub of burned kotok is a place which is 80 km away from andika city, is a home for two cave dweller family. Those caves were drilled by “Janjal Qasemi” who was ancestor of those families by 70 years ago. After years all the local homes were destroyed by road construction, the government abolished all the home construction approvals on the pretext of protecting environment. Now those families are the last ones, who are living in caves and they’re trying too keep their ancestral heritage safe. To arriving in this place you should pass the rocky roads. Facility of those caves in century 21 is something like primitive humans life style. Animal husbandry and hunting are the only way which they’re using them for life. It’s hot in winter and cool in summer without any AC. Also there is no any stove and refrigerator. The only tools is fire. And living with mouses is the only symbiosis.
