ILIGAN CITY – MINDANAO
When you think of cold places as only for relaxation and sightseeing then pull out Bukidnon on your list as this small yet fascinating province is the home to a couple of heart-pounding adventures, the home of the longest dual zipline in Asia. While everything else in the place is designed to chase away your stress, there exist an 840 meter cable to test your resistance to heights and staying power. Mainly 1 1/2 hour from Cagayan de Oro is yet another adventure concealed by fogs and tall pine trees. And yes, it was another memorable experience treasured.
It was last April 2011 when I got an invitation along with David to join F8 (a group of great-smart-pretty girl friends) on their Dahilayan adventure + White River Rafting for P2,000/each. Everything was planned and arranged by Ms. Kate Baol *thank you Ma’am. Excited to try things I haven’t done before, I said Yes and tagged David along.
It was early 6:30am when we reached the area and the morning kiss of the sun was just perfect. It was just a 1-day promo with a minimum of 10 persons.
Dahilayan Adventure Park offers a couple of fun-filled activities apart from their famous Zipline.
The place was still under some minor constructions. If not of those limestones and heavy-duty trucks working around, I might have went back to sleep, sarap ng lamig!
In every corner are different variants of flowers! There were also pines and insects around.
We arrived a little early so we took a stroll around the place + picture2 ki wala pay mga tao.
I enjoyed the cold breeze of Bukidnon. It was soothing to me and I guess to the rest of my friends.
You may try the ATV ride for P500. Other activities include Rope Course (P250/head) and Dropzone which is a 120 ft. free fall (P500/head) . I’ve heard na mi winch boarding na daw coming soon, exciting!
Wala ng time kaya Zipline nalang.
The first and the shortest cable (150M) was easy, parang nasa duyan ka lang. The second one (320M) hasn’t moved me either.
Each one has got to experience the adrenaline rush as the length and height of the Zipline increases.
The 3rd and last Zipline was intense, wit two 840M Ziplines with a drop of 100 meters. *YAY parang talo na ata ni Kath si superwoman!
I-try ko nga kung superwoman ba talaga!
Who would thought that behind these green, thick mountains lie an exhilarating getaway for everyone to experience. When it’s time to break-free from your recurring routines, bring yourself and your loved ones to Dahilayan Nature Park like we did and enjoy great pleasures!
Wonder what improvements are already done to the place, hope to see more soon!
