In the Nujiang Great Canyon, children as young as 7 go to school by "flying" across a river -- sliding on overhead cables that span the river. The cables are tied to trees on either side of the river and to cross, one is suspended from a rope loop attached to a harness worn around the waist.
Without any safety measures for kids crossing the river, the local villagers biggest wish is to have a bridge that would enable their children go to school and return home safely, as they do not have the means to construct a bridge.
