Located at the foot of the Huangshan Mountain, the village’s construction has evolved around crisscrossing streams and a central lake.

As the Chinese saying goes: “The wise enjoy the waters; the benevolent enjoy the mountains.” So it is with Hongcun Village in Anhui Province, which enjoys both water and mountains.
