Travelogue: Family Day at Dahilayan Adventure Park

I miss going to other places and travelling with my loved ones. We haven't been adventurous lately.  Work,home. Repeat 200x. That has been our routine for the past months.The trip to the grocery store every weekend breaks that routine. Once a month, we would visit my mom and the one-hour ride to her home is the closest thing we have  for a vacation.

Around this time last year, was a different story. Zay's kindergarten class went to Dahilayan Adventure and Forest Park. It was a fun day filled with adventures, new experiences and just hanging out with my family. Let me reminisce a bit with these pictures.

It has a picnic ground full of statues of different animals. We had fun taking pictures.

Bungee Bounce
And we tried the Asia's longest dual zipline. As their website said, you should try this and  feel  like Superman. Even my girl was brave enough and conquered her fear of heights. She did the mid-zip (320 meters) and the 150-meter zip. I was so proud of her. All 3 zips including the 840 m Asia's longest cost Php600.



And here is the obligatory family shot!

Dahilayan Adventure Park is in Bukidnon, just an hour and a half ride from Cagayan de Oro City. They have lots of other amenities like the zorbit ( zorb ball adventure), forest luge, ATV and buggy trail adventure. But I found that I also miss those little things that I love about the place. I love the foggy and cool environment, the lush greens, the sweet corn and the fresh strawberries sold just outside the park.

We sure did had a great time! One for the books. Do drop by there if ever you get to visit this part of the world. :)



Kisses,

  1. Wow, the place looks amazing. The view is so cool, parang wala sa Pilipinas with all the pine trees (tama ba?). I want to try the bungee bounce and the zip line, sana malapit lang yan dito.

    I hope you're dry and safe (typhoon Yolanda).

    AND SIS, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AS WELL AS YOUR FAMILY!!!

    1. Naku, nahiya naman ako sa beautiful sis. Hehehe. Salamat!
      The place was really nice sis. Parang abroad sa dami ng pine tress. Ang lamig pa.
      We were fine during the storm sis. Signal no. 1 lang kami but nag preemptive evac na ang mga tao sa flood prone areas. Thank God, hindi gaanong malakas dito sa amin. But what happened in Visayas is devastating. :(

  3. That looks like fun! I've never been ziplining and would so love to go. My kids would really enjoy that. I would take photos next to each animal statue as well. They look so cool. Hope you're having a great weekend.

  8. I'd love to go there. I want to visit CDO and other nearby provinces and do adventure tripping. I know there are beautiful places in Mindanao that aren't known to many. Those are the kind of places that I want to explore.
