Is This The Most Dangerous School Run In The World?

Wow. And we complain about snow days...

While adrenaline junkies around the world spend thousands on death-defying adventures, the schoolchildren of Dhaing village in Nepal have no choice but to face down danger on a daily basis. They are forced to endure a hazardous river crossing by rope bridge to attend school, go shopping or meet friends and family who live the other side of the Trishuli River. There are a number of such crossings in the Benighat district of central Nepal, which require villagers to sit in either a basic loop of fabric or a small ramshackle wooden crate and operate the flimsy cable by hand.
