ZIP TO IT

Courtesy of Gizmodo, the wildest, most extreme zip-line on the planet!

I am a fan of ziplines, despite nearly loosing a few toes on one near Las Vegas a few years ago!  Listen to the guides and you will be fine.

ZipFlyer Nepal is the world's most extreme zipline. With a vertical drop of 600 meters over a total distance of 1.8km, it is the world's steepest and tallest  zipline. Its also one of the fastest with top speeds of up to 140 kmph.

 Who wants to Zip across the Himalayas?

In the meantime, you might want to train on something a little less extreme in preparation.

 Marble Zip Tours offers an experience like no other in the province. It's website says the experience is a cross between parachuting and flying and it's the ride of a lifetime. They offer nine zip lines and ten platforms  overlooking  scenic Humber Valley.

North Atlantic Ziplines offer 10 zip lines ranging from 300 feet to 2,500 feet in length. You get to roar along the rugged North Atlantic coastline and view the picturesque fishing village of Petty Harbour.

No Yeti's but plenty of fun!
