Beijing, Nov.1 (PD Online) --Yumai village, located in Tibet Autonomous Region, has only 28 residents from eight families, making it the least-populated village in China.

Yumai is a beautiful mountain village, but the traffic is very bad. Every year from October to Junio of next year the heavy snow blocks the mountain road cutting the connection of the village with outside world. Because of the excessive rain, the village land cannot produce crops. All of the foodstuffs consumed by the villagers are carried from outside.
