Workers build a footpath around the vertiginous slopes of Shifou Mountain in China








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 years"












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

பரங்கிப்பேட்டை - காஜா நஜிமுதீன், ரியாத்.

Thank you Allah for the strengths and beauties of our nation.
We pray that You keep our country and our neighbors safe.
Please help our leaders use our tax money to save lives not take lives.
O God, help our country assist its poor and needy.
Ya Allah, protect our country from becoming unjust.
Help us, O God, make our country a welcoming nation again.
Ya Allah, keep us free.
Aameen.
