Vanuatu, Pentecost island, Land diving
Pentecost is an island in Vanuatu famous for land diving performed by the locals, thus making ancient ritual. Men jump from a height of 20-30 meters, and only natural materials from the jungle are taken for the tower, as well as for ropes. This is a very dangerous tradition, but it was only two deaths known in our times. By the way, all the locals are Christians. Historically, the event was performed only once a year, but now every Saturday. It happened due to the high popularity of the show among the tourists, each paying about US$150. The island has also beaches and other eco attractions, but these are not so interesting. / read more » /
