With a few notable exceptions (looking at you, scientists on Antarctica), humans civilizations tend to center on easy-to-reach areas. Most of the greatest cities in history sprouted up along major waterways for a reason, after all.
This is part of what makes one secretive, 4,000-year-old Chinese town so fascinating. To even get a peek of this remote place, nicknamed the “mole town,” the world needed to use drones. Nonetheless, people have called it home for a millennia, largely undisturbed.
Now, this amazing aerial drone footage of the ancient city has been made available to the public, and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before… With the capabilities of drone technology at an all-time high, it’s safe to say we’re able to reach places that we’ve never seen before. In few cases is that more evident than with one mysterious city hidden in a remote part of China.
