Aerial photo taken on June 22 shows a pond in Mayoufang Village, Lishu County, northeast China's Jilin Province. The pond in Mayoufang Village, formed by rainfalls, used to be a 40-meter-deep open-pit mine. Since the 1970s, 20 hectares of its surrounding forest have been destroyed due to long-term mining. Starting from 2019, Lishu County began to restore vegetation to the mine and planted more than 100,000 trees and bushes. Now the local government is planning to build a 50-hectare eco-tourism area around the reborned wasteland. (Xinhua/Zhang Nan)
