This zip liner demonstrated that she was flying through the trees with no hands. Maintaining some contact with the cable with the thick leather gloves that they give you while zip lining is advisable because the gloves are also the method of slowing down as you approach the landing platform.
If you apply friction to the cable with the gloves too soon or too firmly, however, you will stop before reaching the other platform and will have to pull yourself along the cable. That does not happen often, nor for very far, as most people would rather come in a little fast and let the attendant catch you than pull yourself along the line.
We are showing photos of the main temple complex of Bangkok, Thailand on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.
