Efforts are on to rescue survivors from the debris as half of a 600-meter-high knoll broke free and wiped out a majority of the village at the foot of the hill, state-run Xinhua news agency said.
The local government has relocated other villagers to safer sites.
Residents said the village was occupied mainly by children and elderly when the landslide struck, as many villagers had moved to the city for work.
Relief materials, including tents, water and food, have been sent to local villagers.
