Dahilayan Adventure Park, Bukidnon, Philippines

Dahilayan Adventure Park in Bukidnon, Philippines boasts of their two 840m Zip-lines which is said to be the longest in Asia. It also offers other fun activities and lodging at Pine Grove Mountain Lodge.
Dahilayan Adventure Park Zipline
We were in a group of 8 so we took the GreatZip Tours Package C which includes transportation back and forth Cagayan de Oro/Dahilayan and City Proper/Rafting Area, Lunch & snacks, 21 rapids Water Rafting (advance) and All rides on ziplines (320m + 150m + 840m).
From De Lux Hotel to the whitewater rafting site we rode a private jeep. Going to Dahilayan Adventure Park we transferred to an air conditioned van. Travel time is around two hours and through rough roads so its good that we had a van.

Upon arrival you have to register at the ticketing booth and get your ticket bracelets.

A warm up zipline for the 840m. Its shorter and lower than the 840m. It's just near the ticketing booth and snack area. 
320m + 150m Starting point
You will be in a seated position rather than a superman position like in the 840m.

840m Zipline
The 840m Zipline has a drop of 100 meters. Zipriders are transported via vehicles like the safari cruiser below, others not as fancy like a white multicab van. 

Safari Cruiser
The launch tower is 4500 above sea level. It can reach speeds upto 90 kph with the best view of the rainforest. It takes around 1 minute to reach the bottom depending on your speed.

Before everything else we have to put proper gears on.

Going to Dahilayan Adventure Park you'll pass by the Del Monte plantation. Driving minutes on rough road through fields of pineapple and other crops. Not something you'll see everyday. Wasn't able to take pictures though. 
Del Monte Plantation
Tons of things to do here. Nice place to hangout with family and friends. Lovely, relaxing and peaceful scenery. Not that crowded. Different from your regular zipline. Be sure to bring your jackets. Tends to be very cold when raining, specially during zipline.
