For all the slackers out there, the local scene is growing fast, mostly amongst the expats of Kunming, but it is catching on with the local Chinese as well. There are many lines and locations around the city, the most popular is the campus of the Science and Technology University, on Xuefu Lu, the guys using a range of lengths and styles (1” and 2” lines). Another popular area is out at the Kunming Botanical Gardens, in the north of the city, but far away from the hustle and bustle.
For the more serious guys out there, we have a highline set up out at the TNT Wall, near Xiaomoyu Village (click here for directions). A fun line bridging a gap between two walls, with a shelf to start off of, a roof with tufas hangs above, while the world opens below. See the gallery section for more great photos from this line.We have scouted 2 new spots for highlining and will be bolting the anchors in the weeks to come, watch this space!
