Baños, Ecuador - If you hike three hours uphill from the Ecuadorean city of Baños, you will find a tree on the edge of an abyss.
The simple wooden structure perched in its branches is a seismic monitoring station in disguise, built to keep an eye on nearby Mount Tungurahua.
But that’s not the most remarkable thing about this tree – suspended from a thin branch is the Swing at the End of the World.
The swing, made from two long ropes and a slim stick of wood, arcs into the vast canyon.
Take a seat, push yourself into the void, and hold on tight – there is no harness and no safety net, just you and the swing. – Slate.com
