Amazing location, fairly short drop 112m approx, but wow, the view. They underplay the hike back up, which is longer and a little more treacherous than expected. A little expensive (save 100r on line). Overall, not to be missed. The people running it are so...More

Wow!!!! The most amazing experience. You should make this a must do activity. We loved it. The leaders and rope holders were reassuring, very experienced, friendly and funny and gave us a really warm yet professional welcome.

Hi there, the abseil it’s self is only about 6 minutes long but it’s probably more like 20 minutes to get rigged up and safety demo etc. The hike back we did leisurely so in total we were gone a little over an hour. There’s... More

Yes if cable cars aren't operating I can rebook. We did book online. Best crew to take photos and videos of your abseil! Cool experience
