My World#25 Excelerator Zipline, Diversion Road, Davao City

Outland Adventure's Excelerator Zipline is presently Asia's longest and fastest zipline. Standing at 200 feet high and 720 meters long, it runs at 80-100 kph. It has become one of the most popular must do in our city and is one of the city's main tourist attraction.

The place is located along Diversion Road, near another well-known city landmark, GAP Farm.

We arrived at almost 9am and we were the 2nd group scheduled to zip for the day. We were given a small orientation by one of the crew before we were installed of the harness.

The lake that we passed by as we zipped along.

There are two ways to zip, the sitting position and the Superman position. I chose the latter as I also zipped last week at Eden Park doing the sitting position. The body harnesses used for the Superman position.
The starting point of the zipline was up on the hill across the lake and to reach that, we have to cross this lake using the platform/raft that was pulled by one of the crew.
The uphill hike was about 200 meters from the lake and took us about 8-10 walk. This hike is really not for the unfit . If you are, better do a lot of stops along the way.
Initial position for the Superman...

Fly, fly away....one can see the cityscape from the zipline and the view was really beautiful.

At the end of the zipline was one of the crew who made it sure that every zipliner landed safely.

We ended our adventure with a big meal at KFC Fastfood at the nearby mall. Gosh, that adventure is not really for the weakhearted and it really made us very hungry.

My World#23 Epol Waterfalls, Marilog, Davao City

Hidden by the forest and 300 meters away from the national highway, Epol Waterfalls is located just within the boundary of Davao City. It is one of the popular bathing places of the locals and has remained almost unchanged since we first went there several years ago.

To get to Epol waterfalls, one should be prepared to hike for about 30 minutes on a forest trail.
But the exertion is actually all worth it...the water is cool and quite refreshing and sometimes, you get to have the place all by yourself.

More pictures and details of Epol waterfalls here.

My World#22 Overview Park, Bukidnon Part II

In my previous post, I talked about the Overview Park in Bukidnon. Right across the highway and still part of the park is the hill where the helipad is situated. This is the entrance to the helipad. The place is still undergoing some improvements as can be seen along the road.

This is one of the two guys guarding the entrance.

And this is his partner with the hill at the background.

My World#21 Overview Park, Bukidnon

This is the Overview Park in Palacapao, Bukidnon. Situated along one of the many zigzag highways of Bukidnon Province, it is an interesting and invigorating stopover for weary and butt-hardened travellers. The eight-hectare park sits on top of a hill overlooking the municipalities of Bukidnon.

The park has been in existence for quite sometime now but recently spruced up with no less than the well-known Davao sculptor, Kublai Millan, doing about 50 sculptures of Bukidnon indigenous people in various mode of activities. Here are some of the sculptures scattered around the park:


A native couple pounding rice near the main building of the park.


Stairs on the way down to another view deck.


Sculpture of a native boy playing a native instrument.



This park is a project of Department of Public Works and Highways and collects no entrance fees.
