While adrenaline junkies around the world spend thousands on death-defying adventures, the school children 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.
