Sky swings and cascadas

As well as all of the guided adventure sports happening in Banos, there’s two less extreme, but equally amazing spots to check out – Casa De Arbol and La Ruta de Cascadas.


P9030457La Casa Del Arbol (The Tree House) is two thirds of the way up Tungurahua Volcano and lean over the valley with a swing beneath that flies out amongst the clouds.

P9030435This is the swing of all swings.

P9020256There is a road built into the side of the cliff face that spirals down to the bottom of the waterfall.

P9020250Making our way down we saw the rope bridge that lay ahead.
