Liam Abbott |

This year, the Mont 4 Zipline at Verbier, Switzerland officially took the title of the world’s highest elevation zip line starting at 10,827’ (3300m) above sea level. The previous record-setter was La Tyrolienne which is at the French ski resort of Val Thorens and had a starting elevation of only 10,597′ (3230m).

The Mont 4 Zipline is 0.87 miles (1.4km) long, which allows you to reach speeds of up to 60mph (100km/h). The zip line starts at the top of Mont-Fort and takes you all the way down the Col des Gentianes in under two minutes. Adult tickets cost a pricey $51 USD, but keep in mind that this is an experience like no other!
