Casa Del Arbol, Baños, Ecuador. If you thought that riding a swing is for kids, think again. Here is the wildest swing in the world: the swings hanging from Casa Del Arbol above the abyss attracts many brave adventurers.
The treehouse actually is a seismic monitoring station. From here an incredible site of the Cordillera Real and an active volcano Tungurahua opens. The hikers reach this spot on their way to Bellavista viewpoint.
The swing is simply made of a metal beam attached to a rope. No safety belts will keep you from falling down the abyss. However, the bravest hikers take their chances and enjoy the exciting experience. Definitely worth trying at least once in your lifetime!
