How to swing at the edge of the world in Banos
There are many different extreme attractions around the world, riding on which you can experience the full range of emotions - from doom to a mixture of delight and terror. One have to pay a some amount of money for just a few minutes of fun on any of them.

In Ecuador, not far from Bagnos, there is a swing, that seems ordinary. Just look at the place where swing is installed to understand why travelers search for it.

The swing is a narrow plaque, attached to the wires, fixed on metal bearings. It stand at the very edge of the site, so when you ride, for a few seconds you are hanging right over the abyss. It was called "Swing at the end of the world" for a reason.

How to do?

1. Tours are organized to this place, but you can get here by yourself. The easiest way is to summon a taxi. You need to drive about half an hour from Banos towards Bellavista.

If you want to save money, get on the bus at the Pastaza Station between Montalvo and Luis A. Martinez, in front of the Panaderia Don Gato restaurant.

2. The swings are located in the Sangai National Park. At the entrance you need to pay an administrative fee.

At the top you will see the house. It is the station where seismic observations are conducted. It offers a beautiful view of the Andes and the Tungurahua volcano. The swing without any safety belts is near the house. If you swing a little, you'll be over the abyss. Despite the fact that it is very risky, there is a queue of people who still want to try it.
