Unresolved mystery: a mosquito-free village

Ding Wuling, an old hakka village in Fujian province, is located 700 meters in the air on the side of a mountain. It has also been free of mosquitos for almost a century.

Generations of villagers worship the toadstone, and there is even a small temple built beside it for its protection. The mouth of the toadstone faces the village, which is the reason many villagers give for why the village has no mosquitoes.

The people in Ding Wuling lead a traditional hakka life, collecting their household garbage and burying it on the mountainside near the village. The location's history and cultural heritage is obvious, from original architecture to beautiful natural scenery.

Many people hope that experts can soon provide a definitive answer to this mosquito-free mystery.
