Zip-Lining in Israel
A zip-line consists of a pulley suspended on a cable, usually made of stainless steel, mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable by holding on to, or attaching to, the freely moving pulley. Zip-lines come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment. They may be short and low, intended for child’s play and found on some playgrounds.
Geographically Israel is diverse with opportunities like zip lining that will help you see the countryside. The world’s second longest zip line, or Omega, is located just outside of Jerusalem in Gush Etzion, where you zip 600 meters across and 120 meters over a lush valley filled with trees and wildlife.
