We started out with filling in the safety forms and with fitting the harness . Then we got a safety breefing on what to do and what not to do. After that we were transported halfway up the waterfall to start our flying.
The instructors spoke well english and they keept reminding us of the safety the entire time. I felt completely safe in these guys hands!
So, of for a a fly! It´s wonderful!
We were three in our group and with two rangers helping us.
During the ride they pointed out some rare orchids (Tiger orchids who blossom each ten years only!) some hornbills nest (Didn´t se any this time) and other special places and animals.
Early on one of the rangers told us the most fun is on platform 8. So after a bunch of rides I was welcomed to Platform 8! The anticipation. The line here is 150 metres long and it crosses the waterfall.
It was absolutely amazing, wow! Viewing the waterfall from above!
I always look down during my ride because it tickles extra to do that. Also when standing on the platforms and wait for the groups, looking down is thrilling.
We kept ziplining untill we reached the longest line. 170 meters. Awesome. Only thing i feel is I want to do this forever so it always ends too fast! ;)
After reaching the last platform we were absaileed down from the platform and then we walked through a trail in the jungle back to Umgawa.
I really loved it and I can highly recommend this for everybody!
