Bukidnon is surrounded by the following provinces Misamis Oriental, Agusan del Sur, Davao del Norte, Cotabato, Lanao del Sur, and Lanao del Norte which are also part of Northern Mindanao and CARAGA regions. Bukidnon is also known as the food basket of Mindanao, being the major producer of rice and corn in the region. It is also evident since Bukidnon is tagged as the Pineapple Capital of the Philippines, housing one of the biggest pineapple plantations in the country.
Aside from enormous pineapple plantations, one of the tourist attractions is the Dahilayan Adventure Park, wherein activities will cause visitors’ adrenaline to run high.
The park is composed of zip lines, free fall, base jump, and more. Fly like Superman on Asia’s First Longest Dual Zip Line, 4500ft Above Sea Level. With an average speed of 60-80kph, visitors will surely enjoy the 840m zip line. The park also has 329m and 150m zip lines to enjoy.
Also included in the package we availed is the Python Roller Zipride – Roller Coaster and Zip Line in one. This is not your ordinary zip line, as this Python Roller Zipride goes up and down and up again, just like the motion of your typical roller coaster, while you are hanging on the air with only the safety harness attached to you.
And the trip wouldn’t be complete without the finale ride – The Dropzone. A 120 ft. free fall ride into the manmade lake that will leave your heart and soul out. Once the maximum height is reached, one of the two brave guests will trigger the ride by twitching the rope, making this pendulum ride swinging, in a superman stance.
