Photo taken on December 14 shows that the first snow this year turns the Yangchang village of Shexian county into a snowy fairyland. The mountainous village is famous for its Hui-style tulou (literally “earthen buildings”). The well-preserved buildings can date back 300 years ago. In the village, over 300 tulou are built all the way from the foot to the hill side.
