The whole school studies in one class at Naliang village of Qiangwei town in Dahua Yao autonomous county, South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

A total of 29 students, from the nearby Yao neighborhoods, attend the school, located halfway up on a hill.

The students spend hours on the road every day, climbing over mountainous areas, some of them setting out before dawn.

Despite the tough conditions, the students enjoy their time studying and playing together.
