While a lot of us dread the thought of going on a camping trip in the fear of being without our home comforts, one man, who has lived in a cave for the past 40 years, has proved that we really don’t need technology to survive.

Pedro Luca lives without running water or electricity in his cavern which lies in a northern Argentinian mountain in the country’s Tucuman province.

The 79-year-old sources his water from a nearby creek and when he gets hungry he grabs his rifle and goes hunting.

However, this extraordinary man isn’t as out of touch with the world as you might think. When he fails to bring in a successful hunt, he embarks on a three-hour trek to the nearest settlement of San Pedro de Colalao.

Take a closer look at this man’s fascinating way of life and see whether you think you’d be able to live like Pedro.

“I never asked myself why I chose to live here,” he says. “There was another cave nearby but I liked this one better. Sometimes, I think that I would have liked to travel the world, see Europe. But there’s a lot of sea in the middle of it all and you have to have the time to cross that sea.”
