A special team from Guizhou Grid Corp responsible for the maintenance work of over 20 power transmission lines in Daozhen, Wuchuan and Zheng'an counties of Guizhou province risks its life and limbs to ensure uninterrupted supply of electricity.
While many will start perspiring at the thought of doing this work, the team finds walking on these high cliffs with just a rope between them and death a routine job as more than 1,000 transmission towers are spread over the mountains.
