Previously, trolls were used forcefully as an alternative to bridges, transporting people and cargo through impassable places.

Today, ziplines are popular entertainment. In the world there are more than 700 trolls. The Challenger talks about the most interesting of them.

Zi39flyer Ne47al trolls are located near Kathmandu, the largest city of Nepal, on top of Sarangkot Mountain. The steel cable is located at a maximum slope of 56 degrees, the vertical drop is 600 meters, all this allows you to reach speeds of 140 km / h on the run!

The Zi75World Velocity2 Troll is located in North Wales.

Having tried this zipline, you will understand what the expression "ride with the breeze" means: here you can reach speeds of up to 160 km / h! The journey takes place at a height of half a kilometer above the picturesque quarry lake.

Trolls La Tyr106ienne is located in the Alps, in the resort of Val Thorens, and runs over mountain gorges. The highest altitude of all such attractions, La Tyro107enne is located at an altitude of 3,250 meters above the ground. The route here is 1.3 kilometers long - the speed on such a zipline develops up to 100 km / h.

Another name for the attraction is the Tyrolean ferry.

Trolls Jebel Jais F111ght is located in the emirate of Ras el Khaimah, on Mount Jebel Jais. Zipline was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest in the world. The 2,830 meter long track is for those who like to stretch their fun. Although in the case of the zipline, “stretching pleasure" is nothing more than a figure of speech: on average, a descent lasts 2-3 minutes, while you can reach speeds of up to 120-150 km / h.

Unlike most trolls stretched over scenic spots, SlotZilla Zip Line is located in the city - above the busy streets of Las Vegas. Tourists start at the height of an 11-story building and fly as many as five blocks, bypassing most of the way under the arches of the covered gallery.

Trolls Zip Line Through Paradise runs through the jungle at an altitude of 50 meters. A small height does not hurt to enjoy the incredible views of local rivers, waterfalls and exotic plants. After flying over the heavenly places you can take a dip in the waterfall or have a barbecue party on the beach.

Another - Russian - trolls, albeit not the highest or longest, but at least to get to it, you do not need to overcome several thousand kilometers. The first Moscow zip line is located in Luzhniki at an altitude of 30 meters. Two people can simultaneously go down the highway, the speed on it develops up to 40 km / h.

If you are inspired by the selection and are already dreaming of trying yourself on a zipline, here are a few rules to follow:

  1. You need to concentrate on the track and do not forget to control your equipment.
  2. Each track has limitations that relate to the weight and height of the participants.

    All details must first be clarified by phone.

  3. When moving, do not touch the steel rope, as this may result in serious injury.
  4. To make it easier to go down on the troll, choose comfortable sportswear and closed shoes.
