Miners redidence and caves On my way to Skardu when I looked at these homes, I was so surprised to see living there. I saw few kids playing at the top of this mountain. Living seems impossible there in such wilderness. There is no facility available around almost 3, 3 hours. I was having some discussion with my fellows over this and I met a miner during one of my stops. I shared these pics with him. He solved my mystery and told me that he himself is a miner and they live there. And they do a business of billions every year. These mountains are very precious and contain precious stones.
