Going to Bukidnon from Cagayan De Oro is quite easy as we rented a van that will bring us to our destination. We paid for PHP2100 pesos each and that included the following: Zipline (all zips) + RTT CDO-Bukidnon + White Water Rafting + snacks. You may also opt to include lunch for a minimal cost but we decided not to avail it as I suggested that we have our lunch at Del Monte Clubhouse coz I heard from friends that they serve scrumptious steaks there. I found the package reasonable coz zipline alone costs PHP600 per head and the rafting costs around PHP1000++ per head. It was simply hassle-free instead of commuting. :)
Initially, we planned to spend the whole day doing the zipline and White Water Rafting in CDO so we got up early in the morning. We left CDO at around 8AM, arrived in Bukidnon past 9 in the morning. But since the weather was really bad, our transpo service/contact person/driver just decided that we do the rafting the following day.
Zipline in Bukidnon is located at Dahilayan Adventure Park, roughly about 40 kilometers away from Cagayan De Oro. On the way there, we passed by a verrrrry long pineapple plantation that belongs to Del Monte. The zipline park is called Zipzone where you can find the longest dual zipline in Asia.
Like I said, the weather was really bad. It was raining and so foggy so we spent time first deciding whether we should go on ziplining or not.
See photos below:
Just a trivia, Dahilayan Adventure Park is 4,700 feet above sea level. It was effing cold and I was just wearing a pair of short pants, good thing I brought a jacket. Hahahah!
We spent time contemplating, playing around, warming up and taking pictures, of course! Hahaha!
But since I am such an adventure freak, we decided to do it even if it was raining. I wouldn't want to miss it for the world!
We took the 3 ziplines:
320M + 150M + 840M.
The first two zips were "corny" for someone who enjoys this extreme adventure (like me) coz they were short and the position was easy. It was as if you are just sitting on air.
The 3rd zipline's starting point is quite far from the end point, thus, they have a transportation service (a jeepney/multicab) that brought us there. If you're familiar with the "Superman" position on air, you will do that here in the 3rd zip.
One of my friends didn't try it coz she has a fear of heights. I tried my best to convince her (she tried the 1st two zips but didn't take the longest one) but I guess my best wasn't good enough... lalalalala...
I also HAD this fear of heights (except of course when riding an airplane) when I first tried ziplining in Tagaytay a couple of years ago. But after doing it, I crave for more. I became addicted to extreme adventures. It's really fun and there's this certain euphoria when you get to finish the activity.
So for those who are afraid, just do it. Life is so short, make the most out of it.
And I believe in the saying that, "Pag panahon mo na, panahon mo na." You can even die while sleeping, right?
Hahahahah! Morbid much? Jooooke lang! :P

She's very accommodating, was checking on us from time to time and we also asked her a lot of favors and added services such as transpo to other part of the province at minimal cost. She made sure that we enjoyed our adventure as well. :)
