    Thousands of metres up the vertiginous slopes of Shifou Mountain in Hunan Province, China, a team
    of workers, operating with hardly any safety measures, are building a footpath

    The workers are building a plank road on the side of the mountain that, once it is finished,
    will stretch for 3km (9843 ft) and be China’s longest sightseeing footpath

    48-year-old Yu Ji (above) is one of the workers and he has been working on high cliffs building such plank roads for more than 10 years. He comments: “Young people don’t want this job, as it requires them to stay deep in the mountains for months or even yearsâ€Â

    Yu Ji takes charge of the most dangerous part of the project –
    drilling the holes to set up pipes to support the footpath

    Building a plank road on Shifou Mountain is difficult because the
    cliff stands vertical at 90 degrees, without any slope or alcoves

    if i had a terrace up here, i wouldn't go out on it. I looked at an apartment on the 20somethingth floor with a terrace and i did not like it.

    The bridge isn't so bad it is the scaffolding they are using to build it that is bad.
