What is Zip Lining?
If you’ve ever seen Medicine Man with Sean Connery then you know what zip lining is, if not then read on. The idea behind zip lining is simple. A person basically uses a cable to sail from treetop to treetop, in speeds that can exceed 50 mph to get a bird’s eye view of the world.

Initially designed to transport medical and food supplies through extreme mountainous terrain, zip lines have now become a popular diversion for thrill seekers, and extreme sport aficionados.

Benefits of Zip Lining to Adventure Seekers and Novices?
By far, the best thing one can get out of zip lining is experiencing nature like you never have before. Since people spend most of the time indoors these days, zip lining in summer can be the perfect way for the family to get out in the open and spend some quality time together. Apart from being a great de-stressor, zipping around can also assist in shaving some calories off the top as well.
