Shanini Travel Guide: 47 reviews and 93 photos
During XI and XII century, the Arabs invaded the territory and forced the local inhabitant to divide: a part remained nomadic and mingle with Arabs and the other part choose to stop wandering. As the territory is hostile and the climate is very difficult, they choose an unusual way: they started buiding their home inside the mountains!
These people also speaks a language that is completely different from Arab one.
They dug their houses inside the mountain because the external temperature: during the night is very cold and during the day very hot. Inside their homes the temperature is naturally maintained the same: 20-21°C.
