Standing 20 feet off the ground, you swallow the lump in your throat with a hint of apprehension. All you can hear is the pounding of your heart.
Half an hour later, you disconnect from the zipline and look back over the 44 obstacles you overcame. As you break into a wide grin, you realise that what you’re feeling is an amazing sense of accomplishment.

High rope course is a challenging outdoor personal development activity. It consists of elements constructed in trees or made of utility poles which require a belay for safety.

Participants must meet the minimum height requirement - 3’9”feet. Further, people with health issues like cardiac problems, epilepsy, recent surgery, high blood pressure and expecting mothers are not advised to participate.
