Great Kolyamour 2005-03-08 23:47

Excellent panorama of interesting place. Too many questions...
I see that some houses are without windows. Are they abandoned?
I see also some caves. Are they inhabited?
These rocks look like limestone. Is it right?
Thanks for share.

Default To Kolyamour: Questions

The rocks are made of aggregated volcanic ash. It is very easy to carve out some rooms in the tuff (even with finger nails), so it was not very expensive to build a house or to add a room...
I understood that people don't live anymore in the caves : this kind of habitation is now considered as dangerous, and people are not allowed to live thereanymore.
