In the picture, Chinese children wear their school backpacks and climb on a cliff using a bamboo ladder on their way home from school in Zhaojue county, southwest China’s Sichuan province, May 14, 2016. They must climb a 2,625-foot bamboo ladder secured to a sheer cliff face. The village in China’s mountainous west may get a set of steel stairs to improve safety.
