Residents of Los Pinos, Colombia, including children, use a zipline for their daily commute. There are two ways in or out of Los Pinos– A two-hour hike or a one-minute zip line ride. Eight children use the zip line daily to go to school and return home. There are no plans to build a bridge, because the population of the village doesn’t jusify it. Two separate cables strung across the river 1,200 feet below allow you to come and go, so– bring your own pully, rope, and brake, and away you go! It looks like fun, but I don’t know about doing it every day.
The only thing I don’t like about this video is that the interviews in Spanish with the locals are hard to hear.
