There are six intriguing difficulties in this game.

  • The first task is an 18-meter cliff abseil.
  • The second challenge is to zipline down the fall to the river.
  • The third challenge is to slide water down a 3-meter-long waterfall.

The zipline across the waterfall is the most exciting of these tasks. You must train a lot for this game so that make sure your hand is strong enough to handle the weight of your entire body. You will begin by practicing easy exercises such as climbing with low-level strings. When you are more confident, you can go to the upper level and enjoy discovering Dalat in your own unique style.
