Some local Miao people have lived in this huge cave for more than 150 years. Currently, less than 20 households live here. Because there is no rain in the cave, the buildings have no roof.
The cave village area in karst topography is infertile land with many stones. Therefore, People of the village only can grow corn. They usually bring back harvested corn with bamboo baskets.
Miao people of few places in Guizhou province practice cave burials. It is a kind of natural burial.
