for brave adventurers and daring excursionists, the ‘swing at the end of the world’ soars high over the ecuadorean city of baños, flying over the vast mountianscape and tungurahua volcano. tethered to a wooden habitat hidden in a tree, ‘la casa del árbol’ has two ropes connected to a small swing seat. the extreme attraction asks thrill seekers to sail into the sky 2,660 meters above the sea level, elevated over the abyss and overlooking the outrageous dip in altitude. the aerial panorama is nothing short of breathtaking, with the flight offering a completely singular view of the edge of the earth.
