The mound is so high that makes it looks like an island in a sea of dirt. And the house owners, two old folk have to climb up and down tens of meters every day to get inside and outside of their home.

Xinhua reported on Tuesday May 19th:

The lone holdout, among its neighborhoods in Cuiping district, Yibing city, Sichuan province, were approved by local government to be demolished to make room for a large residential property project.
