Dahilayan Zip Zone
Longest Zip Line Adventure in Asia
November 4, 2011
A trip to Cagayan De Oro City is not complete without a visit to the Dahilayan Adventure Park.
Although it is located in Bukidnon, a neighboring province of Cagayan, it's just a 2 hour drive going up through provincial boundaries and scenic mountainous areas.
I'm unable to get a focal point while inside the van, But what's so charming about it is when it slows down to allow traffic. The resulting picture with this boy walking the street is unexpected, I felt bless for having the patience to continue taking pictures while my fellows inside the van all fell asleep.
I've never tried a zip line adventure before, a short time adrenaline rush is not my thing. The most enjoying part of this trip was the drive. Bukidnon's countryside is amazing, I tried to capture it in my photos even when I'm inside a taxing van.
Meet the Team Budgetel..
We were named as this group by our rafting guide since all 5 of us are lodge at Budgetel.
One of the perks while travelling is meeting new people and making friends with them, these 3 in the middle of the picture is Sherwin, Gerardine and Abbi all young CPA's working in Makati. We worked on the same business district and may have bump into each other a few times without any introduction. I was amazed at their Haggling skills especially the girl in the middle Gerardine. We ate lunch at The Clubhouse of Del Monte farm after this and she already calculated the bill and how much are we to spend per head on our food even before making an order. She's also the road manager for their group managing itineraries and making calls for any tour guides, always having a contingent plan. If I was a businessman, I would want her to be in my team.
It's obvious that I got my adrenaline fix, since I opted to be included in the last pair of zip liners, I was greeted with eager entourage after I'm done. Smile for the picture.
Rodeo rides abound, I've never ridden a horse before. Bukidnon was like a rodeo country, and there're real cowboys around.
