Cliff road helps villagers cast off poverty in N China's Shanxi

Xinhua,September 26, 2018 Adjust font size:

Photo taken on June 13, 2018 shows a flight of steps on cliffs used in the past by villagers to go to the county seat in Shenlongwan Village in Changzhi City, north China's Shanxi Province. A 1,526-meter-long road was built along the cliffs to connect isolated Shenlongwan to the outside. The construction of this miraculous road lasted for fifteen years from 1985 to 2000, and was built purely by villagers of Shenlongwan. Thanks to this road, villagers here now cast off poverty by developing tourism. (Xinhua/Cao Yang)
