Zizi is one of the few villages not yet afflicted by cement. Some 200 families are living in the houses made of mud and straw. The village is terraced; each roof serves as a courtyard for the upper house. With a continuous settlement dating back to over 2,000 years ago, Zizi is believed to be the oldest village in the province. The villagers are mainly farmers and herders, not yet desiring urbanization. The uniqueness of the village is attributed to its position; there is no village behind Zizi. Once completed, Pataveh-Dehdasht road will place Zizi by a main road, which connects the central region to the south. The new highway will most definitely direct more visitors to the village
