87MPH Mile-Long Zipline

ZipFlyer Nepal

I have tried ziplining a few times while vacationing.  It is always fun, but always too short and certainly never scary.  Time to vacation in Nepal I guess.

The zipline pictured above, the ZipFlyer, has a vertical drop of about 2,000 feet (600 meters) and a total distance of about 6,000 feet (1.8KM, 1.13 miles).  So you go over a full mile on a zipline and reach speeds of 87MPH, that would be both long enough, and scary enough for me.
