The Canopy Walkway!

20151102_100814sm
It was our day to hike through the jungle to the Canopy Walkway of swinging bridges connected tree to tree to tree high above the primary
rainforest floor!

The Canopy Walkway is an experience unequaled in the rainforest! At a height of over 35 meters (115 feet) and extending for 500 meters (one-third of a mile), the Canopy Walkway provides a view of the rainforest from the treetops, the best vantage point for observing Amazon wildlife and vegetation.  The suspended walkway is spread between 14 of the area's largest rainforest trees and is one of the longest canopy walkways in the world.

Were we excited?  YES!  This is one of the things many of us have been looking forward to the most.  to walk among the tree tops and see what it is like from above.

More hot than I’ve ever been in my life!

Swinging amongst the trees, looking downwards to the ground must take ones breath away, not for the faint of heart.. Glad everyone is having a grandiose time.

Looks like an amazing experience! Your photos are wonderful. I especially love the one looking out across the trees. Does the rainforest have a fragrance?

It looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing. I don't think it is wheelchair friendly.
I must add I would be too chicken even if it was. LOL! Please continue to be safe and have a wonderful time!!

Oh Boy. Height is not my friend. My body did a shake & rumble just looking at the pictures that you took looking down. You are very brave. Stay safe and enjoy the rest of your trip.

Sounds right up my alley along with hang-gliding, parachute jumping, etc. Would love to experience this.

Oh wow! It is beautiful, but I'm not so sure I'd be able to walk on those bridges...between the height and the swaying. Oh my goodness. Good for you.
