After a coffee and some fruits you´ll climb to the canopy about 100 feet above the ground.
There are 3 observation platforms connected with steel cables. The access to the first platform is by rope climbing. Crossing from one platform to another is through a zip line, by which you practically “fly” from tree to tree. Descend is done from the last platform by rappel.
