Most families in the village have the same family name, Meng, though they are not all related.

Xinhua photographer Huang Xiaobang followed these children on their way to school for the first time in 2012 and kept updating his photo archive over the years. Gradually he noticed the changes: the children grew into adults and blacktop roads replaced the rocky, perilous trail their little feet once trod.
