Abseiling is a recreational activity that involves descending down using a rope in controlled conditions from a mountain, cliff or a man-made structure and also known as rappelling in the United States. Its origin dates back to 1879 in the Alps to reach its highest peaks and since then, it became a popular recreational activity both indoors and outdoors.
Abseiling has matured into a sport and recently become a popular South African holiday activity. It used to be a method for climbers to get off cliffs, cave explorers to travel underneath the world and military task-forces employed it for all kinds of operations. Since then, abseiling has become commercialized as a daring activity and sport to make your way down a mountain cliff.
