The Swing At The End Of The World
Have you ever had a hankerin' to swing over a steep slope that's 2600 meters above sea level with no safety measures whatsoever? Well I have got the trip for you. First, we'll need to get you to Ecuador. Since you're here for thrills, we may as well get you over to the Galapagos Islands while we're at it.
What we are looking at here is in Baños, Ecuador at a seismic monitoring station called La Casa Del Árbol (The Treehouse). As the name suggests it’s a small house built in a tree, at the edge of a canyon. The view from up here alone is worth the trip, but for thrill seekers, La Casa del Árbol offers a swing hanging over the precipice with a beautiful and terrifying view of the Tungurahua Volcano. Any takers?

Welome and thank you for visiting! I am a travel agent with a passion for good food, design, general craftiness...and of course TRAVEL. I treat everything in life as an adventure. Sometimes the journey is short and sweet and sometimes it's long and messy, but if we try to stay in the moment we can make most things enjoyable.
