CHINESE ‘SPIDER-MEN’ CLIMB TO COLLECT RARE HERBS

Watch the Miao people of Guizhou Province rock climb with nothing but their bare hands to collect rare medicinal herbs that are said to cure asthma and rheumatism.

 

This ancient Miao tradition is carried on by a few locals known as “Spider-Men”.

 

Like their ancestors, they use no safety equipment, only courage for protection as they scale 100 meter walls in search for herbs that can only be found on these high cliffs.

 

Wang, said “It often takes us four to five hours to find the right herbs on the cliffs and bring them back”
