Mountain Village showing 6 vehicles, electricty and phone lines

Mountain Village

North of Beijing City, near the Great Wall, there are many small villages based on farming. The area isn't rich, but it isn't poor either. Many of the roads have been paved, the villages and the farms have electricity, there are phone lines (but most people have cell phones), and there is even television reception via satellite. Enough people have cars or trucks so that you can get a ride if you need one, or get help taking your produce to market.
