Residents in Remote Village Use This ‘Iron Basket’ to Get Home

While most people commute by car, train, or walking, this cable car has become an old friend for people in a small village in Hubei Province by helping them travel.

For the past 16 years, the 196 residents of Yushan village have depended on this rickety old cable car for getting in and out of town.

The village is about 93 miles away from the nearest town, and is surrounded by steep cliffs and valleys, making it difficult to access. It takes an entire day to get in and out by walking.

This 0.62-mile-long cableway was built in 1997, and is 0.3 miles above the ground. Villagers call it the “iron basket.”

It must have special meaning for them as they’ve been relying on the iron basket for so long.
