    In the time it takes for the cable to make the telltale "zip!" through the pulley, your body is already flying

    through the air. The cord is the only thing keeping your limbs from crashing into the ground, and a lone

    bird mid-flight the only obstacle between you and a mountainside. The vast, beautiful landscape

    stretching underneath your feet removes the daily anxieties so typically plaguing your mind, body.



    The time to take repose in the crisp autumn skies of the weekend is now. Zip-lining is similar to

    paragliding in that it doesnt take up too much time, and youre able to feel at one with the skies above

    you.



    Zip-lining is the sport of speeding down thick wires hung from the sides of mountains and trees.

    The rider, attached to dollies, speeds past wildlife and foliage at great speed over a long distance. The

    activity is derived from the natives of tropical rainforests such as Costa Rica and Hawaii, who would use

    the tree-height, thick wires to avoid snakes, insects and other poisonous creatures. They call it "zip-

    lining" due to the undeniable zipping sound emitted whenever a person straps in for a ride. Depending

    on the region, however, it might also be called "flying fox", "zip wire", "aerial runway", and "Tyrolean

    crossing".



    Zipline Mungyeong is located in the Buljeong Recreational Forest in Mungyeong, North

    Gyeongsang Province. The resort has installed nine courses that total at least 1.3-kilometers-long,

    which hang at a dizzying height of 487 meters between the idyllic ridges and the valleys. Its difficult

    to not feel enchanted by the experience.



    No matter which guide you choose, each tour will make the rounds at all nine of the courses. There are

    paths that take you between the tallest of the trees, another deep in the valley, and each one boasts a

    different personality and level of difficulty. The last and longest zip-line course at 360 meters is the most

    exhilarating and dynamic of the collection.



    To check out all the courses takes about two hours. Two people can ride together if they weigh

    less than 130 kilograms.

    Reservations are available online; for more information visit www.zipline.co.kr, and call 1588-5219.
