Zipline at Dahilayan Adventure Park

In my previous blog post, I said that we weren't able to try the activities at Dahilayan Resort Park because we were pressed for time.  We wanted to try the zipline first but we only had two hours of free time in the morning of our flight (Guess what, our flight was cancelled and we had to stay another day at CDO!If we only knew, we should have stayed in Bukidnon for one more night). But there's another resort, right beside Dahilayan which is the Dahilayan Adventure Park. I don't know if they are owned by the same company/person.

It was my first time to try the ziplining - they have three, and for P600, you can ride all three (not all at the same time of course!).

They've got the 320m, 150m, and 840m dual zipline. Dahilayan claims that their 840m dual zipline is the longest zipline in Asia! The first two ziplines are  done sitting, while the longest is done superman-style (though I felt like a bat in a suit, a bat with folded wings, err... basta, bat.).

It's super safe, even for seniors!

My souvenir pic - Mahal! P100 yata isa
From the dropzone, going back to the front of the park
One has to ride a mini jeep to get to the take off point
for the 840m zipline (ride is free)
See, I look like a bat!
The breathtaking view

And there's the dropzone, which sadly, for lack of time, I wasn't able to try. One will be pulled by a crane up to 120 feet, and dropped like a screaming potato up to within a few feet of the manmade lake. Then swing like a pendulum until the momentum stops you from swinging, and your heart has registered that you're still alive.

You'll be pulled up to the top of that crane
And swing, and swing, and swing, and swing
The swinging was the best part, I heard
I just hope I'd have another chance to come back here, and do the rest of the activities that I wasn't able to do, this time, with my family.  Who knows, with some luck and a lot of prayers, it might be soon?!

After this, we went back to CDO to catch our flight, which, as I've mentioned before, got cancelled because of a bird strike (hindi kasi sineswelduhan nang tama, kaya nagwelga ang mga birds). Kaya eto ako:

Ayan na yung eroplano eh, di na kami pinasakay.
Thirty minutes kaming nakapila sa  runway.
