The ‘Swing At The End Of The World’ Lets You Soar A Heart Stopping 9,000 Feet Up

Mental note, “add to bucket list.” When most of us think of a swing set, our minds typically gravitate to a playground. However, “the swing at the end of the world,” as it’s known, takes that meaning to a whole new level. Located in beautiful Baños, Ecuador at La Casa del Árbol (The Treehouse),  allows anyone brave enough to swing nearly 9,000 ft. above sea level.

The swing is essentially made up of a metal rod with two ropes, and what looks like a small tree branch to sit on. Without being strapped in, you then swing out off the edge of a cliff. So if you are looking for an adrenaline rush and a great view, book your flight to Ecuador.

It’s attached to a massive treehouse, which is actually a seismic monitoring station called “La Casa del Árbol.”
