8 Fun Facts about Ziplining!

Ziplining has been around for quite some time, and many people are brave enough to take on the daring challenge to do such an adrenaline rushing activity. In the earlier times of Ancient China, zip wires as they called them, were used in the Nujiang Valley of Yunnan Province. This area offers mountains, rivers, and valleys. Since they did not have all the equipment we have in modern times, it was hard to cross the rivers safely. Zip wires were the answer to safely crossing the rivers instead of swimming and using ferry rides. To this day, some of the original lines remain and are being replaced with modern day ziplines.

Zipline attractions are open in many different parts of the world, which means you are bound to see a different source of scenery wherever you go. In modern times, most people zipline for the excitement and fun experience. Here are some surprising facts you might not have known about ziplining:
