It's time to return to Dahilayan Adventure Park for some unfinished business.
We had a great time on our first visit. The ride going there, the 320-meter and 150-meter zips were great but sadly we were not able to try the 840-meter line due to the long queue.
So this time we went there earlier and brought along more excited faces, snacks, lunch, hot and cold drinks. We're ready and nothing will stop us now from conquering that almost-a-kilometer cable.
Majority of the vehicles brought there are these big ones but that did not stop us from bringing a sedan. It was able to keep up with the two Rev-O in our group even on rough roads.
We went straight to the flight center to confirm our reservation and lined up for the 320-meter and 150-meter zip lines.
Now it's me and my wife's turn. Woohoo!
It's our second time in these lines so we had more time to enjoy the ride than trying to hold to dear life the first few seconds when we were here the first time. My wife even found time to wave at her fans :)
Jumping with joy - We made it! And plenty of time left for the finale ride!
But first, we went to the woods... spooky...
... for some demure shots...
a Twilight movie shot...
and Jollibee lunch.
After we recharged ourselves, we're looking at this long and high contraption of thrill and excitement.
This is a zoomed in view of the starting point.
It's time to go up there. And go up there in rugged safari style!
Woohoo! Smile muna!
The ride up was fast and bumpy like you're on a roller coaster with cold mountain air in your face.
Here we are at last.
The flight deck going down.
Zoomed in view of the landing area down below.
Finally, it's almost our turn. Can't wait. Nothing will stop us now!
Then the clouds came in, and with it came the rain. It became so foggy that you can't see anymore the adjacent mountain range.
But still, this did not stop us. "Naligo na naman kami." It's just water. Who's afraid of zipping in high altitude, in low visibility rainy weather, cold rain on your back and cold air to give you chills to the bones. Not us!
The flight deck crew strapped us in, two at a time.
While we try to see the best we can where the landing pad is.
Meanwhile, the landing crew had no idea if someone's landing or not. So they wait there in the foggy rain looking at nothing.
But thanks for their patience to wait for all of us to land.
It really was a great experience.
Come join us as one of the many who experienced the longest dual zip line in Asia.
From Cagayan de Oro, take the Davao-Bukidnon Highway, right on the Alae Junction, proceed 25 kms to Baranggay Dahilayan past Camp Phillips and the pineapple fields via Mampayag. Book online here.
Here are some tips:
- Don't gate crash. Book online or call them days ahead. Walk-in adventurers rarely get a chance to ride. The line for groups with reservations are long enough for the day.
- Bring a jacket if you go there on cold months.
- Bring drinks, snacks and packed lunch. Plenty of benches in the woods. Hot water, choco and coffee is good to have.
- Horseback riding and ATV rides are available.
