100 feet off the ground, experience a never-before-seen view of an ancient tradition: Danza de los Voladores. This Mexican ceremony asking the gods to end a drought has been a ritual passed down for centuries. Watch in awe as five climbers ascend a 10-story pole and then, tied just by their waists, spin in mid-air down to the ground.
