Especially, the zipline challenge has drawn much attention of tourists who wish to fly in the air by a pulley and supported by other modern equipments.
There are ten rounds distinguished by yellow, green, orange, blue, red and black colors with 80 challenges for players at the height of 18m in the air. The difficulty will increase after each challenge. At first and second rounds, players will learn how to use all the safety equipments and techniques to play the game on three terrains of wooden stairs, footbridge and zipline.
It takes each player 120 minutes to finish all the challenges. The High Rope Course, which is developed and managed by Dalattourist, has been put into operation since March 2015. The coaches and guides were trained at Bali Treetop Adventure Park (Indonesia) using imported facilities and equipments.
