Chinese villagers living on cliffs

In the Liangshan Mountains of Sichuan Province in China, there is a small isolated village on a cliff 1,400 meters above sea level. This is the village of Atuler, known as the Cliff Village with 72 families who has been living there for almost 200 years.

All travel is by a ladder that leads to the sky at almost right angles. The 2,556 steps of the rickety steel ladder on the steep cliffs are the only way for the villagers to get out of the village.




It is the only way for the villagers to get out of the village and one trip is the equivalent of climbing more than 200 floors.

A one-way trip takes about 3 hours even for an able-bodied villager.

    Lai declares Taiwan independence.

    Mainland Chinese can hide in the cliff villages, bang drums and do nothing.

    Lai is not stupid. If he dares to set Taiwan on an independence path, Taiwan WILLL BE invaded, the talk-big US can do nothing about it.

    Other than making noise, what is China going to do? Make more noise?

    新华社北京5月21日电 国务院台办发言人陈斌华21日答记者问指出,台湾地区领导人20日的讲话通篇充斥着敌意与挑衅、谎言与欺骗,“台独”立场更加激进冒险,大肆宣扬所谓“主权独立”“两岸互不隶属”“台湾住民自决”等分裂谬论,极力乞求外部势力撑腰打气,妄图推动“台湾问题国际化”,继续“倚外谋独”“以武谋独”,可谓是一篇彻头彻尾的“台独自白”。这充分证明,其是岛内主流民意的背叛者、台海及地区和平稳定的破坏者。

    有记者问:国务院台办20日以发言人表态方式,对台湾地区领导人“5·20”讲话做了释放谋“独”挑衅危险信号、充分暴露“台独”本性的定性。发言人能否具体阐述一下?陈斌华作了上述回答。

    陈斌华说,台湾地区领导人在讲话中,刻意包装、欲盖弥彰地宣称“中华民国台湾是一个主权独立的国家”“中华民国与中华人民共和国互不隶属”、台湾是“我们国家的名称”。这是在贩卖“两国论”、搞“台独正名”,表明其上任伊始就迫不及待露出“台独”真面目,态度极为猖狂,主张更加激进。必须指出的是,台湾自古属于中国,历史经纬清晰、法理事实清楚。大陆与台湾同属一个中国,台湾是中国的一部分,这是真正的台海现状。台湾地区领导人不仅没有回答两岸关系性质这一根本问题,而且妄图改变两岸关系性质。这是对一个中国原则的严重挑衅。

    Granted he did. Let him make noise a while longer, lets grab popcorn and watch.

    @牛增乳

    It was because of war. The history of the village can be traced back to 200 years ago, as the background of the time was full of banditry and war in the Central Plains, the villagers came to find this place in order to find a peaceful place to escape from the world. Due to the fertile local soil, the villagers eventually settled here, away from the turmoil of the outside world, their own self-sufficient heirloom life for nearly 200 years.

    Hahaha… this is so hilarious but the hard truth.

    Yes, Chinese are paper tiger beside bang drums and bang head against the wall, there is little they can do about it.

    By the way, why Lai swear in ceremony is done in front the portrait of Pedophile Dr Sun Yat Sen https://www.reddit.com/r/AutumnBegonia/comments/mku4n6/sun_yatsen_pedo_confirmed/

    Not just popcorn.

    Please also stock up body bag.. it will be the best money spinning business once war start between the cross straits.

    Lai will be Zelensky the second stupid cannon fodder.

    By the way, Tech, will you go to the frontline to fight if your CCP ordered you to go frontline ?

    Or will you tell your CCP master that you are Singaporean, not Chinese and you serve 2 years NSF in SG like Chew Shou Zi ?

    Well,while I admire the gutsy spirit,I oso seriously think about moving out.
    After all,China is so vast.
    Is it a “spiritual” matter or just familiarity and resistance to change.

    What are the “secrets” that make these villagers cling onto their old way of life?

    It is fraught with constant danger and very punishing too.
    Hope some folks enlighten them or they the enlightened ones?

    Don’t worry about them. A few years back, they already got free house and land in a nice town from their caring gov. Those remaining are there for profit, including profit from tourists.

    In this case, PRC authorities treat them very well.

  • More noise could be heard!:

    Lai Ching te also make noise only by twist and turn with words.

    The real intention is to agitate so that the opponent will get angry and make mistakes.

    If the current Lai administration will to do away with 陆委会, immediately treat all issues related to mainland China as foreign affairs, more noise, of massive magnitude and frequency, could be heard loud and clear from that part of the world immediately!

    As of now, Lai Ching te is just not man enough to do just that!

    Hearsay or Factual ?

    Yup! Sounds weird. I also dont buy it. Video was only 4 months ago.

    Got free house and land years ago. So why still climb ? Plus nearly 3 hours climb. Go up 3 hours, come down also 3 hours. Thats 6 hours. Somemore adults still bring along child. One misstep or slip, say bye bye. Even dont died also paralysed. Given any norm people, the practice would have stopped already. Except for pro adventure sportman or climbers like that documentary Free Solo – alex honnold. Or is it their ancestors buried up there ?

    Why still do farming up the mountains? Doesnt look like they are planting ginseng or lingzhi or wu wei zi or whatever. Just pumpkins or something like that.

    So nobody can steal right ? Many cases where China people or villagers stole from the farmer’s land and reap their benefits.

    Tech: There are some who still chooses to live there, although they have government allocated house for numerous reasons, especially the oldies and goodies who left the allocated house for their son to get married. These oldies then do tourist business providing food and lodging for tourist way up there.

  • Oh Shit:

    China going to take back Taiwan by force.

    US has pushed it beyond limit. Congressmen in Taipei.

    The best minimal force strategy is to take back sovereignty over water and air around Taiwan. All ships and planes must clear China customs at a mainland port. No Chinese in Taiwan need to become cannon fodder of the west.

    Taiwan is already a independent country. Can China’s President, Premier & ministers go into Taiwan without Taiwan President’s approval? Chinese citizens who want enter Taiwan must show their China’s passports.
