Dahilayan Adventure Park has gained its popularity not just because of the places cold weather and beautiful scenery, but most of all because of the heart-pumping activities one can do when visiting. First it was the Asia’s longest dual cable zipline, then the nerve wracking 120ft dropzone and now the Skytower Base Jump! There’s no stopping Sir Elpie Paras in bringing the most extreme adventures in Northern Mindanao! This is by far the Philippines’ tallest parajump platform. Surely the daredevils will find this delightful.
The skytower base jump is as high as the 8-storey cell site tower platform. So if you’re in for extreme adventure, visit Dahilayan Adventure Park and get ready to experience the quick, as in quick freefall (in less than 10 seconds) and end with a gradual descend to a safe landing.
There’s no stopping Dahilayan in innovating and bringing in thrill and excitement to adrenaline rush junkies! They are bringing in another reason to visit them! Watch out for the launching of The Python Zip Ride. It is a 500 meter rolling, twisting, turning and dipping bumpy ride! Snake through the pine tree forest of Dahilayan Adventure Park with the Python Zip Ride!
Here’s a sneak peek of the Python Zip Ride with Sir Elpie Paras.
It has been mentioned earlier on this blog that Cagayan de Oro City’s tourism dwindled after Typhoon Sendong destroyed a lot of places in Cagayan de Oro including some of the major tourist destinations for adventure. It is unfortunate that many of the supposed tourists thought that CDO is no longer a good place to visit since the devastation. Well, you guys have to see all these photos and video. The photos below were taken a week ago during our visit in one of the major destinations when you visit Cagayan de Oro City, the White Water Rafting (we started at Mambuaya River).
Undeniably Cagayan de Oro spells White Water Rafting! And yes dear visitors it is still as good as it was. There were some minor changes though, like the restaurant and the swimming pool the rafters used to stop over to freshen up and eat is no longer there as it has been swept away by the ravaging flood water. Some rapids were gone but there were newly formed and some even became more exciting!
The video below is courtesy of GMA’s regional station feature in their local program “Isyu Karon”. With the goal to show everyone how fun it still is even after the typhoon recharging CDO’s tourism. See for yourself!
Photo below is the 11th rapid (beginners course). Quite a challenge as it is a surprise rapid! Used to be level 2 but after the typhoon it’s now level 5. Trust me it’s insanely fun! We did this 2 consecutive days making sure we are not missing anything. And may I add, NO leptospirosis! so it’s definitely 100% safe health wise.
