Over half a century ago husband and wife Liang Zi Fu and Li Su Ying moved into a cave high in the mountains near Nanchong, in China’s Sichuan province.

The couple chose to live in the cave because of a lack of affordable housing, and have remained at the location for the past 54 years, growing their own food on nearby farmland, and drinking spring water and catching wild boar.

Liang Zi Fu and Li Su Ying raised four children in the cave, and despite authorities’ attempts to get them to move into contemporary housing, the couple refuse – saying they have gotten used to the cave, which boasts three bedrooms as well as a kitchen and a living room.
