Notice the small slope and abundant plant life as the trail exits Tyuonyi. This is what the entire village would have looked like before excavations. Looking at the cliff ahead of you, you can see at least one of three ladders you will be able to climb to see the inside of a cavate or human excavated cave. Using basalt tools, it would have been a difficult task to carve these openings even though the rock is relatively soft.
