Danao Adventure Park Bohol Suislide Zipline and Plunge
Hi guys, I’ve been very busy lately going on trips and stuff 🙂 Â I say life is love… but also, I’m getting broke from all these trips 😛 Â oh well, I just say… work harder (and smarter) so that I can go and travel more 🙂
Oh well I was really worried that I won’t enjoy the Bohol trip because the day before our flight, I was fever-ish and I was still coughing. Â Fortunately I felt better the next day and man that trip was so awesome!
Danao Adventure Park
Danao Adventure Park offers a lot of fun, daring and challenging outdoor activities! Â By challenging, I mean plunging down 200 meters and swinging back and forth with only a harness attached… Sliding from one mountaint to another, exploring caves and many more!
Choose among the many attractions they offer like:
* Sky Ride
* Plunge (swing bungee)
* Suislide (Zipline)
* River Trekking
* River Tubing
* River Kayaking
* Wall Climbing
* Village Tour
* Organic Farm Visitation
* Root Climbing
I was still sick-ish at that time and so I did not try the plunge. Â You will understand why if you see the photos below. Â Free-falling 70 meters while being suspended 200 meters high would make my nerves and blood go haywire and my immune system might be compromised. Â I need a stable immune system to fight the virus on my lungs @[email protected] Â I took the Suislide though 🙂 (it’s their zipline)
To me, the zip-line is scarier than the plunge… I have no way of comparing, but it was definitely FUN!
Suislide is basically a zip-line consisting of a pulley suspended on a cable mounted on an incline cliff. The Suislide has two lines, going forth and back. Its starting point is parallel to the Sky Ride and Plungeâ€™s height.
Suislide is the local version for zipline, a sky ride or a slide for life. Sui-slide is coined from the word, â€œSuisâ€œ (the sound of the cable ride once you get to slide) and â€œslideâ€. It could also mean for some who is so much petrified with heights to be a suicidal slide. It traverses around half a kilometer from one mountain to another, taking you to less than a minute exhilarating rideâ€¦
Working load is 5 tons. It can slide a maximum of 200 pax in a day.
Rate: Php 350
I must say the the P350 fee is very reasonable because technically, you get to zipline twice (going to another mountain, and back). Â This is actually the tallest zipline (not sure if this is in the world, maybe just the Philippines) anyway, correct me guys if I’m wrong on the comment section below.
I didn’t do this ride 🙁 But I want to so bad… but I don’t want to get sicker 🙁 I want to go back and do this though. Â Anyway, if you plunged, you get a certificate 🙂
According to their official website, the free fall plunge was 45 meters before, but now it’s longer – 70 meters! WHOAH! Â Anyway, the plunge is a canyon swing adventure attraction mounted over a 200 meter high and 300 meter wide gorge. A person would have to do a 70 meters free fall before being launched on a pendulum swing measuring to a hundred meter diameter. Cable has a maximum working load of 5 tons.
*Special thanks to Miguel and family for fostering our stay in Bohol! Â We really had fun and thanks for your hospitality!
Since I was jealous of everyone plunging and I couldn’t because I was sick, I took creative shots instead and enjoyed nature 🙂
A different angle, a different hue.
Dew drops and a fly
eeky millepede or caterpillar? whatever… I don’t know how to distinguish.. but man.. zoom in 😛
spider caught some fly or something, it would have been nice to see the spider himself here
What I like about Bohol is that I saw flowers everywhere. Â Reminds me of my hometown Bacolod and it reminds me of my mom who adores flowers.
