Unusual Way to Travel in Columbia
Residents of Los Pinos, Colombia, including children, use a zipline for their daily commute. There are two ways in or out of Los Pinos– A two-hour hike or a one-minute zip line ride. Eight children use the zip line daily to go to school and return home. There are no plans to build a bridge, because the population of the village doesn’t justify it. Two separate cables strung across the river 1,200 feet below allow you to come and go, so– bring your own pulley, rope, and brake, and away you go! It looks like fun, but I don’t know about doing it every day.
Maximum speed, which can be developed on these ropes – 62 km / h.
Length – 400 meters.
