There’s a swing on the edge of a cliff in Ecuador. It has no safety measures and is called the ‘Swing at the End of the World.’ So this particular adventurer’s fortress is located in the high mountains of Ecuador. It is this intense adrenaline rush that makes rush seekers swing over the high mountains without any harness.

You could reach there too. If you’re traveling up towards the path of Bella Vista, you can see this place. It lies on the edges of Banos, Ecuador. From this edge, you will keep walking and upon reaching the standpoint, you will locate the Treehouse, which is also known as La Casa del Arbol. This small tree is built right at the edge of a giant canyon. The magnificent view from this treehouse will gear you up for the ride ahead.

For adrenaline junkies, La Casa del Arbol is more than just a sight. There is a swing made right over a crag. Needless to say, they fancy swinging over emptiness. It is a new way of seeking thrill and attaining a “high”. In fact, seeing pictures of the same on the internet might give you goosebumps.

The images of people swinging off the cliff are real people. They are most probably taken right at this spot. People who have tried this are of the view that when the clouds block the sight of the Tungurahua volcano, the swing ride is enjoyed the best – it almost feels ethereal.

The swing is supported by just a thin metal beam – there’s no guarantee that it won’t break while you’re on it. Perhaps, strangely enough, that’s what adds to the excitement. But for sure when you’re on it, you could meet your death anytime. This ride is not for the cowardly, that’s for sure.
