Chinese Kids Have To Climb Sheer Cliff To Get To School (VIDEO)

Next time you're on the school run and you're cursing traffic, screaming at your offspring or bemoaning the lack of a parking space, spare a thought for these kids.

They live in a remote village the the Chinese Hunan Province and the nearest school is 30 miles away.

Rather than make the trip every day the kids stay at the school but when they do go home they are forced to make the rather terrifying ascent.

And they're not alone, some nifty footwork from their pets allows them to take the trip too.
