There are no schools, markets, hospitals, and places of other public facilities in the village. So to all different places, the inhabitants had to climb and downhill so far.
It is often the local residents expressed their concerns to the government, the residents asked that the road be built in their village. But the demand was futile, the government was never granted it. Perhaps because of the difficulty of geographical structure in the village.
