Ziplining-An Eco-Friendly Adventure

 

What in the world is ziplining? 

It is the "sport" of soaring high above the ground while your body is secured in a harness and attached to an overhead cable.

What is a zip line?

A zip line is an aerial runway created by stretching a cable between two fixed points.  The zip line must be sloped enough to allow gravity alone to propel riders (zippers) along the length of the cable.  The zip lines constructed by eco-tour companies are usually built high above scenic areas, up to 200 feet above the ground!

 

What are the eco-friendly features?

Ziplining should be commended for the creative and non-invasive approach to providing a recreational opportunity for the public to experience an eagle’s eye view of some of the best arboricultural treasures Mother Nature has to offer. I am particularly excited that the zippers are encouraged to involve themselves with and appreciate the trees that house the platforms.

 

The entire ziplining course I recently visited is constructed in an area where paved road was not required, and with the platforms and zip lines suspended high above the forest floor. The guides aim to promote environmental awareness through dialogue with the zippers, and they discuss key points about local ecology and wildlife.  Ziplines use no electricity, emit no fumes, and burn no fossil fuels. What a spectacularly green activitiy, not to mention an exhilarating way to enjoy nature.
