"When I was Your Age, I Had to Scale a Cliff to go to School"

Did you have to walk to school back way back when? In the snow? Uphill? Both ways? Well, imagine what these children in China get to tell their own children one day:

Children from a remote village in southern China face a treacherous journey home from school, up 230-foot ladders that stand against a vertical cliff. [...]

The children are not the only ones who are forced to use the vertigo-inducing access route - anyone who wants to reach Zhangjiawan Village must undertake the hair-raising climb, and that includes pets.
"It makes my legs shiver, I dared not look down when I was climbing up stairs just now because I felt so frightened," said one woman.
