Nature 'Takes Back' Abandoned Village In China

Nature 'Takes Back' Abandoned Village In China

Rather than working with nature, we humans keep working against her. As a result, we've done some pretty irreversible damage so far.


Luckily, Mother Nature is much more powerful than us, and she finds her ways to claim back what is hers. A Chinese fishing village, Houtou Wan, located on Gouqi Island, is a perfect example of it.


After being abandoned, nature has taken it back. Now, it is a magical place that soon may become a top attraction for photographers and tourists. The place was once home to about 3,000 fishers, but in the early 1990s, its residents left to live closer to cities.


As nature has wholly consumed the village, it's converted it into a captivating wonderland. Now, the buildings in the village are covered in ivy and worn down by roots, vines, wind, and rain.


Except for day-trippers and some elderly residents who refuse to leave their birthplace, the village is entirely deserted.


The pictures of the charming place, taken by Nanning-based photographer Tang Yuhong, are mind-blowing:
