Sacred Valley - Zip line
Security at the via ferrata: The equipment used allows the person to remain tied to a “life line”, in this case a steel cable. Through the via ferrata lanyard the person can go up securing himself with the carabineers. If a fall occurs, the person will remain tied to the “life line” without any risk. All our guides are mountain guides trained in vertical rescue and ropes.
What is a via ferrata?
A via ferrata is a path used to climb a mountain with a safety system permanently installed. It gives the chance to people without any experience in climbing, the opportunity to move through spectacular mountain scenery using a minimum of equipment.
The climber is permanently tied to a steel cable that runs through the entire route. Usually does not require any climbing rope. Metal ladders, bridges and similar facilities are used. This helps maintain the physical difficulty of climbing and mix beginners skills while providing access to a very high, and extreme vertical sections of a mountain, that could only be accessible to experienced rock climbers.
Who can climb a via ferrata?
Anyone who is in good health and physical condition is able to climb the via ferrata. The minimum age to climb the Sacred Valley via ferrata is 8 years old. Without exception, the via ferrata climbers must always be accompanied by a guide.
What kind of equipement is used?
A standard climbing harness, helmet, gloves and a via ferrata lanyard, (double system with strength dissipater especially designed for via ferrata climbers). All our equipment is certified CE. These elements will be provided by us.
