200 people? Relocate the farkin' village somewhere more accessible.

I would imagine that if you grew up in those mountains, you wouldn't be too afraid of those heights....

They haven't printed that much money.

The article first says that the cableway is the only way in or out of the village.

It goes on to say that before it was built, villagers had to walk several days to the next nearest village.

So it's NOT the only way in or out, just the most convenient.

2 different things.

Doesn't look scary to me. Am I abnormal?

Keep it greasy so you'll go down easy.

That...actually looks kind of neat. But then again, I also think Tyrolean traverses are fun. Back when I worked at a rock gym, I was the only one happy to scamper across the ceiling to change a light bulb four stories up.

Until he left for a career in the United States, everyone in my village used to traverse death-defying canyons via Evel Knievel.

Hmm, I want to make a joke about shoddy chinese products, but I'm not sure where to go with it.

/probably something to do with the high lead content of the cables.

Do a GIS for 'himalayan rope bridge" and be thankful if you had the Chinese version.

The Chinese are insane as far as I'm concerned, although it looks like there are a few crazy ass white people too.
