A different perspective from which to view the forest is definitely from above!
This tour allows you to come into close contact with nature, observing it from an unusual point of view; sitting in a comfortable cable-car specifically constructed for those who love the jungle. Moving slowly in silence we can enjoy the sounds of nature and be submerged in the peace that the tropical forest brings.
The excursion takes place in 100 hectares of exuberant tropical jungle. The flora is typical of the neo-tropical forests of Panama and includes such species as Mountain Figs, Cashew nuts and Balsa. This impressive diversity of plant life is the food source for all kinds of fauna, including the following mammals: Howler Monkeys, Squirrels, Capybara and sloth amongst others. You will also see beautiful birds such as Parrots, Toucans and Marmots.
The cable-car extends for 1.2km over the forest canopy in a trip which takes roughly 20 minutes to arrive at the summit of Cerro Pelao. From there you can walk along the narrow path which leads to a remote observation tower which can be climbed up to the 10th floor by way of a gently spiraling ramp. The cabin of the cable-car travels no faster than 1 meter per second allowing you plenty of time to enjoy the sights and sounds.
A guide will point out and describe all the flora and fauna seen on the tour; it’s an unforgettable experience.
