Zhaojue County (Yi: ꏪꐦꑤ juo jjop xiep) is a county in the south of Sichuan Province, China. It is under the administration of the Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture. It has a population of 322,600 as of 2021, including 98.53% Yi. The name Zhaojue is a transliteration in Chinese of the Yi words for 'mountain eagle's plain', or 'sloped plain'.[1][2]

Atulie'er Village[edit]

The remote Atulie'er village[3] (Atulie'ercun, 阿土列尔村), is located in the Zhi'ermo Township (支尔莫乡)[4] of Zhaojue County. The village was the focus of a Chinese news video and photojournalism that became international news in May, 2016.[5] Villages such as Atuli'er are often dubbed cliff villages due to their height and remoteness.
