Bukidnon, Mindanao no longer means just pineapples, cool climate and lush greenery. It’s now home to the longest zipline in Asia – Dahilayan Adventure Park’s Zipzone! I know that Mindanaoan has featured this piece of news way back in September but ZipZone offers new and exciting adventure that it deserves to be continually promoted, yes? Besides, two of my friends got featured on the front page of Inquirer because of this new Mindanao tourist destination!

How to get to ZIPZONE Extreme Zip Line Adventure – Manolo Fortich is about an hour’s drive away from Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao. As soon as you reach Alae (one landmark would be the Alae footbath…all vehicles entering the Bukidnon province will need to stop at the footbath area), take note of a rotunda. You will see this before you reach the Alae bridge. Take this road. Go straight ahead until you reach Camp Philips (this is where most Del Monte employees live). Drive further until you reach Dahilayan.
