Riding a Zipline to School (8 pics)

Posted in Pictures   29 Mar 2010   / 6234 views

Children from a distant village in Colombia ride to school using a zipline that is 1,312 ft (400 m) long! They move pretty quickly reaching the top speed of 38 mi/h (62 km/h). By the way, kids manage to carry their younger brothers and sisters in hemp sacks. I just can’t understand how they go back home…

Maybe they send some kind of hook and another rope along that zipline and when they hook themselves on it, they will be pulled back by some motor vehicle. Or then they walk back...

How they go back is simple.
They use the same method from the other side.
They go to a higher point and of course use another zipline.
Usually there are 4 ziplines. 2 for route A-to-B and 2 ziplines for route B-to-A.
