Drone shows the ancient underground Chinese cave city Sanmenxia – Daily Mail

The series of subterranean dwellings amount to nearly 10,000 homes in Sanmenxia city, Henan province, central China. The courtyard homes are currently under strict government conservation. Amazing birds-eye view images (above) of the site and ones from inside the courtyards themselves (inset) have been published online, showing the remarkable prism-like homesteads in all their glory, carved out of the sediment of huge loess land pits.The immaculately designed cave houses are strengthened with natural materials on the pit walls, with a depth of 20-23 ft and length of 33-39ft. The attraction will open to the public around May Day next month, and has already been visited by a handful of lucky tourists.
