Sichuan Province, China - Just how far would you go to get to school on time?
Well, you won't believe what some kids as young as six-years-old in the mountains of southwest China face just to get to their classroom!
Oh, we're talking much more than "stranger danger." We're talking cliff-danger. These kids have to scale a half-mile, straight up using wobbly vine-ladders to climb the steep rocky cliff!
Brings a whole new meaning to school of "rock."
The two-hour trip to school is so intense-- and so taxing-- that the kids can only make this trek about twice a month.
Yeah, some parents volunteer to go along and supervise the kids since the commute is so dangerous.
So why do they do it?
Well, some say that's a secret.
But hey, it's no secret that a good education is worth climbing to the ends of the earth!
