Bukidnon’s Dahilayan Zip and Drop Extreme Adventures: Be Like Superman!
Ida Damo | March 08, 2016
Bukidnon is a landlocked province with 10, 499 square kilometers of forests and canyons, pineapple plantations, and cattle ranches. It is also a site where one can try extreme adventures just like in Dahilayan Adventure Park.
Dahilayan Adventure Park has a Dual Zipline which is the first longest zipline in Asia at 840 meters and a drop of 100 meters. You ride a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get to the launch tower at 4500 ASL then you zoom through pine tree canopy with the cold mountain breeze blowing on you.
You can shout, scream or just spread your arms and enjoy the ride. After landing on the flight deck, you are prepared for two more zipline rides: the 320 meters sit-down ride and the 150 meters superman ride.
Everything is secured and guarantees smooth rides. What you have to prepare for is the adrenaline pumping heart beat jumping Drop Zone.
This is a freefall ride from 120 feet into a man-made lake. As you are being lifted off to the drop point, you'd feel every heart beat because of the adrenaline rush. You can scream all that you want and when you pull the release lever you can shout out more.
You will go up and down in the middle of the lake as you go swinging. At some point your screaming stops and you just go with the flow, to and fro. Pro tip: Try to release your nervousness by just laughing it out.
This is not for the faint hearted. So if you feel any hesitation, don’t do the drop zone.
Aside from the zipline and drop zone, there are other rides at Dahilayan Adventure Park that makes it into Mindanao’s favorite extreme playground. Go visit and try out the rides to bring out the adventurer in you.
How to get there:
Bukidnon can be reached through Cagayan de Oro City by plane from Manila, Cebu and Davao. Take the LAX Shuttle from Laguindingan Airport to Ayala Centrio.
On Saturdays only, the ZipZone shuttle will be waiting from 8-830am at the Coffeeworks-XU Divisoria in Cagayan de Oro City to take you to Dahilayan Adventure Park in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon.
