This Scary Swing In Ecuador Will Definitely Satisfy Your Wanderlust

Ever thought of pumping your wanderlust by exploring exotic Ecuador? Located in South America, this country is fairly famous between the photographers’ community and is the home of the infamous Ecuador Swing.

Ecuador is also known for having the world’s highest active volcano, Cotopaxi. With only a lonely seat belt to hold you in, the swing arcs riders out into the air over the canyon. It is unclear where the swing came from—perhaps it was set up by a whimsical seismologist.
