Walk among the treetops in SwitzerlandLaax, Switzerland
Spanning 1.5 kilometres, the longest treetop walk in the world has opened in Switzerland. Connecting the two alpine villages of Laax Murschetg and Laax Dorf, the Senda dil Dragun weaves through lush forest, immersing you in the epic mountain scenery.
Viewing platforms allow you to stop and take in the sights, while information boards share facts about the local flora and fauna. At its highest point the elevated boardwalk is 28 metres above the ground (that’s roughly the height of four double decker buses), and it's made entirely from regionally sourced wood so that it blends seamlessly in with the surrounding landscape.
But the coolest part would have to be the 73-metre long slide, which offers an alternative route back down to the ground. It’s great fun for the kids, or any adults who don’t want to take the stairs or lift.
