CHENGDU, Nov. 27, 2019 (Xinhua) -- Atulie'er Village is a famous "cliff village" in Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan.

Due to the village's isolated location, perched like the seat of a chair with near-vertical cliffs both above and below, villager must use a series of handmade ladders to scale the 50-meter-high cliff.

Now a 2,556-steps steel staircase has been built, significantly improving the travel conditions for locals.

Besides, 4G network, banking service points for agricultural production, olive and notoginseng planting and tourism promotion services are now accessible to the villagers.
