Arequipa Zip Line

Arequipa-Zipline03_sladeBelow is a video of me riding the Arequipa zip line in Arequipa, Peru. It was part of the city bus tour we took our second day. The first section is 750 meters long. The second is 250 meters long to get you back across the Rio Chili where you must hike back up to the original launch point.

The hike, at a 7,500 foot elevation, was taxing for this old-over-weight guy. Although it was a struggle with a few stops for a breather, it felt good. Significantly, I had no signs of altitude sickness. I attribute that to my steady diet of coca candy and frequently chewing a cud of coca leaves.

Thanks to Slade and Dan (members of the Motoquest tour group) for letting me use their videos along with my own.
