Bukidnon Province is located in Northern Mindanao and borders Lanao del Norte and Lanao del Sur, Agusan Del Sur, Cotabato, Misamis Oriental and Davao del Norte. Bukidnon is also known as the “Food Basket” of Mindanao (also as the ‘Baguio’ of Mindanao), as it is the biggest producer of rice, corn, banana and pineapple on the island. But it’s not just food that makes this province worth the visit. There’s more to Bukidnon than its incredibly juicy fruits.
A Dahilayan Adventure is best for outdoor enthusiast and nature lovers. Bukidnon also brings to mind the longest Dual Zip line in Asia. Located in Dahilayan, Bukidnon, The Dahilayan Adventure Park is an hour or so drive from Cagayan de Oro City or from Davao City, since there is no other means of transportation (no piers or airlines), one should take a bus ride from the latter locations to get to Bukidnon. One can get discounts in van/ bus travel if you travel by group. There are also packages which you can avail from, like the latest 600 Php all-ride-package and the 1,999 Php all ride package with White Water Rafting, transportation and snacks.
The zip line experience is like no other. You can feel the rush as you zoom through the lines, plus you can see the green growth of fauna 4,500 feet below and go at speeds up to 90 kph. This may seem like a scary experience, but it is a very safe process as its equipments are standardized and are always checked, plus it is an adrenaline packed adventure you wouldn’t want to miss. Aside from the zip line, they also have huge circular means of travel which is called a zorb. A person is put inside a zorb (with attachments) and the big ball is rolled down a safe and steep path. Take a break and enjoy the fresh mountain air, as there are several wonderful spots for picnics and outside meals. If you are planning on an overnight stay, don’t worry, as Pine Grove Lodge has affordable suites for couples and for the whole family.
The zip line adventure is not just a ride; it is a memory that would last a lifetime. Accessibility is an issue, but it’s still an enjoyable experience, as the mountain views are enough to satisfy the green-hungry eyes from the concrete jungles. The air is cool and the company keeps you warm, what else could you ask for?
