Wang Xicheng, 60, is the only postman who has been working in the Zijin Mountain for 35 years. He delivers mails, parcels to local villagers in the mountain in north China's Shanxi Province.

Wang Xicheng collects newspapers, magazines, and mails from Houma Fenglei post office, and then sends them to 50 households in four villages in the Zijin Mountain. Rugged road to the mountain makes his delivery work harder, but he persists to walk about 25 kilometers and spend the whole day across the mountain to visit each consignee every day.

In recent years, as more villagers have moved to city from the mountain, the amount of mails have became less; even if there was only one mail to be delivered, Wang would take a few hours to deliver it and he never gives up.
