On Tuesday, a video of it went viral on Weibo, one of China's popular social media platforms, reported

One netizen commented: "This is a mountain? I'd like to find out the definition of a mountain."

Local people once deemed it a rock and tried but failed to remove it. So it got the name Mount Jing, which means "immovable."

According to the county annals of Shouguang, the 1.24 meter-long, 0.7-meter-wide Mount Jing is the only mountain in this area, with a history of over 100 years.
