With an elevation drop of about 800 meters between the village and the bottom of the cliff it is located atop, Atulie’er village, in Zhaojue county, Liangshan Yi autonomous prefecture of Sichuan Province, is called “cliff village”.
In May 2020, 84 households of the “cliff village” were gradually relocated to houses with stairs at a poverty-relief resettlement site, the Nanping Community. Some 18,000 impoverished residents from 92 villages moved to their new homes at a newly-built community at the county seat, the largest poverty alleviation relocation project in Sichuan.
