This pair of thick cables with a steel cage powered by a diesel engine is the only access to the outer world for the village of Yushan in China. There are only 200 people living in Yushan and before the ropeway was built they had to walk for several days to get to the nearest village. The ‘high road’ is 1000 m long and is 400 m above the valley floor. It was built in 1997 and since then it has been operated by one and the same person who maintains the engines and manually applies oil onto the cables along the way.
