Perching on the top of mountains and precipitous cliffs in central China¡¯s Henan province, Guoliang is dubbed as ¡°the world¡¯s most dangerous village¡±.

The village is at an altitude of 1,700 meters and local villagers used to have to resort to 720 almost-vertical stairs to get to the outside world.

As time goes by, villagers carved a tunnel in the stone walls of the 200-meter cliff.

The village, though isolated until recently, is now attracting more and more interested tourists.
