  • It is advisable for those with medical ailments and pregnant women to avoid zip lining.
  • In general, before zip lining, make sure that the safety equipment and harnesses are in the right place and buckled well.
  • Follow and listen to the safety instructions given by the guides carefully. Do not jump off the platform before told to do so and wait until the other zip liners in front are cleared.

  • Avoid wearing dangling or excessive jewellery that may fall off due to the harness and flight. Similarly, empty your pockets to avoid things flying off.
  • Applying sunscreen and mosquito repellants is advised. The experience will take you into the forest where you may encounter various creatures.
