Wanna fly like superman? Then, head to Dahilayan Adventure Park right away. It’ll surely give you one of the most thrilling adventures you will ever have in your life. We are quite lucky that Asia’s longest dual zipline can be found right inside our country. Dahilayan Adventure Park is situated at Brgy. Dahilayan, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon.
After my trip to Cebu, I visited a college friend who is now living at her hometown in Bukidnon. I stayed for several days at her family’s house in Brgy. Damilag. She told me that I must not miss this zipline adventure in Dahilayan, which is just 30 minutes away from their house. So one morning, she drove us to Dahilayan Adventure Park with some of her other friends. The road to the park was a little bit bumpy but it was all worth it when you finally see the beautiful view from the park. We went to the park in the morning because I heard that many people go there on weekends. So to save time from queuing, we decided it’s best to go here early.
Since its opening in September 2009, Dahilayan Adventure Park has gained increasing popularity. In fact, I’ve heard that KC Concepcion and Sam Milby had just visited the park for a shooting before we went there. There are tons of activities to enjoy in the park and the most popular are their ziplines. They have three ziplines in the park: 320mt + 150mt (Php 250) and 840mt (Php 500). A combination of all three (320mt + 150mt + 840mt) costs Php 600. We availed all the zipzone rides because we wanted to make the most out of our stay here. After the staff had put on our helmet and harness, we were off to go!
The 320m and 150m ziplines were so much fun! But the main event is their 840m zipline, also known as Asia’s longest dual zipline. We rode the park’s FB van to take us to a higher ground that would be the starting point of the 840m zipline. The 150m and 320m ziplines were nothing compared with the last one. After wearing the gears, I listened carefully as the staff was giving the instructions before they sent us off. He said that I could put my arms on my sides if I want to increase my speed and I could spread my arms wide if I want to slow down my speed. As the staffs prepared to push me, I could already feel my heart thumping wildly against my ribs. I didn’t feel afraid at all at the 150m and 320m ziplines but this one looked really scary! With 4,700 feet above sea level, I knew that if ever my harness would break down, there is no hint of survival. But still I didn’t hesitate to continue. I don’t know, but I’m just one of the daredevils on this earth.
I screamed at the top of my lungs at the start but I tried to open my eyes all throughout the ride. I knew I shouldn’t miss such a beautiful scenery. The view was breathtaking. You could see all the pine trees and the picturesque landscapes below you. The ride was scary but so much fun. The speed was about 90 kph so you could feel the adrenaline rush and the cool breeze all around you during the ride. This was indeed one of the most reckless adventures I’ve ever tried. But don’t worry, the ride is guaranteed safe and so far, no casualties have ever been recorded. According to their website, this is safe for every age. Actually, the zipzone has been tried by a 2 year old child and a 77 year old grandpa.
You could buy a certificate with a printed picture for Php 100. After the ride, we treated ourselves over a delicious meal at Pine Grove Mountain Lodge. The restaurant is located just inside the park.
I loved the place because it reminds of the guesthouses in Baguio. The place looks nice and cozy. A meal in the restaurant is perfect after an exhausting day from the zipzone.
After eating, we wanted to try the ATV ride but unfortunately, it rained. So we just asked the manong if it’s okay to take a picture with the atv. And he said, sure. He even lent us a helmet. (Pwede ding pang-profile pic sa facebook )
We went home after. But I really had a good time at Dahilayan Adventure Park. I’m surely coming back to this place, if ever I will get the chance to visit Bukidnon again. A Friendly Tip: Since the weather is unpredictable, it’s best to come to the park as early as you can. Moreover, don’t forget to bring your jacket and umbrella.
