Little kids take potentially deadly zipline to school in Columbia (7 photos)

This little girl in Columbia takes a zipline about half a mile down a mountain to school everyday. The “dangerous” jungle walk would take about 2 hours to walk. There is another cable that winches you back up the mountain. Yes, that’s her little brother hanging from the potato sack.

    Holy Awesome!

    My fathers story of “walking 5 miles to school uphill both ways” is nothing compared to this!

    “Columbia” is spelled Colombia

      If you’re going to gripe about somebody’s spelling, you may want to remember the period at the end of your sentence.

      silly you… these are obviously kids in D.C.

  • petwookiee

    Dang, for the first time in my life, I’m kinda jealous of kids in Colombia.

  • Joe Clyde

    No. No childhood trauma at all. Why do you ask?

  • bowhuntpa

    #6 sucks to be you in the bag.

  • Equalizer

    That is why Colombian kids are more in-shape and energetic compare to the kids here in the States.

      Yes, it is a well known fact that Colombians, because they all take ziplines to school every day, are more fit than us fatasses over here.
      Of course, it just MIGHT be that we’re lazy, stupid, and eat food that would make them vomit.

      I fucking love this country 😀

  • Equalizer

    Now, how do you go back home?

    • modianos

      maybe youll figure it when when you learn to read. you know, since its SPELLED OUT for you and all.

    Holy cow! That’s just amazing. In the UK Health and Safety would have something to say about this. Bureaucratic red tape “protecting us from ourselves” can really piss on the need to do what needs to be done.

  • LOL

    I want to go back to school!!!!!!!! I’m 38 & live in Colorado but THAT’S OK!!

  • lol

    well they are doing it for the sake of education, i’d like to see this kids to be successful in life in the future

    I built one of these across the creek by my house.. loads of fun…these kids don’t know how much fun they’re having before and after school. The avg kid plays MWF2…not these kids..they are zip-lining to a higher education.

  • Weezy


  • HellHathNoFury

    That’s admirable, amongst other things. It would definitely wake you up in the morning. Here’s hoping that for all the determination, the education will lead them to much better living.

      And unlike giraffes, you don’t have to feed it.

    “Sorry I’m late for school…umm.. my dog ate my ‘V’-shaped break stick?”

    • God

      That would make you early ;D

  • at work

    that is bad-ass

  • Chris

    The problem I see is the lack of a proper harness. Then again, if you don’t start swinging your hands around, you won’t fall. Unless something breaks, but a harness wouldn’t have made a difference if the cable broke. So I don’t see why there would be a fuss about “potentially dangerous”. Millions of kids go to school by car each day, and cars have a higher chance of being in an accident than a zipline 😀

    Also, that’s cool. Really cool. I want to go there.

  • inspectmyclouseau

    amazing what people do in other countries to get an education while many of my peers take their spoon fed opportunities for granted

  • John

    the girl is probably tied onto the sack…and that is awesome!

  • 1337drewby

    those kids should have some badass theme music playing whilst they do this… jealous.

  • robin yates

    kids who go to school like this will be adventurers all their life, awesome

  • kronusG

    Fake, (imo) how is she able to hold on to the kid in the sack with one hand?!?!?

    • modianos

      its real. it was featured on ripleys. you can see the vid on youtube. hard to imagine huh?

      • kronusG


  • flav

    one word: AWESOMENESSSSS!!!!

  • slutifer
