Dingwuling is a Hakka village located in Changting county, Longyan city, Fujian province.

The village is known for its primitive style and has no cement buildings, but visitors comment on its picturesque scenery and folk customs.

It is also said that there has not been a single mosquito in the village for nearly one thousand years – and legend has it that a stone toad on the road leading to the village deters mosquitoes.
