Most people can do tree climbing if they are in good physical condition and don’t feel dizzy. It is important to be aware of its limitations. If you have any doubts, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and not do it or talk to a member of the team.
The tree climbing is very suitable for children, who can climb between the trees in specific routes for their size and age.
