China kids climb mountains to get home

After school some children in China have quite a tricky journey home - climbing ladders up the side of mountains!

The children live in a small village in central China but can spend months away from home because their schools are far away.

Getting back home is not simple - they have to climb ladders attached to the side of mountains, sometimes carrying bags and with their pets following behind.

Check out the clip to see what their journey is like...
