Sui-slide and the Plunge at Danao

This was my second time to visit Bohol and every time, they have something new in store for their visitors. From Panglao, our driver/tour guide, Kuya Jun picked us up and we reached Danao Adventure Park or Extreme/Eco/Educational Adventure Tour in 2 hours. Since we were scheduled to do a city tour on the same day, we decided to only do the Sui-slide which is their version of zipline and the Plunge. I can say that this is far better experience than my Bukidnon adventure. The view is just wonderful and you can feel the height as you are way above the trees. A perfect panoramic view. But one thing about the Bukidnon (Dahilayan) zipline is that you'll feel more secure with their gears. The Sui-slide gears was a bit light and I felt the difference from the one I wore in Bukidnon. I just don't know how to explain it. Though it did not scare me but I bet it would for some of my friends. This was also a realization how I love this activity as I was all smiles all throughout. I did Sui-slide alone (take note it was drizzling) and I still had fun. I would go back here again and experience it one more time and at the same time explore the other activities E.A.T Danao has to offer.     


Sui-slide is PhP350/person
(rate as of October 2011)

I'm a sucker for ziplines so I cannot miss the Sui-slide. I was the only one who did this.

The first zip is 480m and the second zip is 460m going back. It was drizzling when I did the first zip and the view was just beautiful.

Our second activity was The Plunge which is PhP700/person
(rate as of October 2011)


Kuya giving me instructions while he works on my safety gears

He tells me to sit down

Slowly, the floor folds and let me hang  on the air  for a few seconds

Then a split second they released me & I  couldn't feel anything supporting me. This is a 45meter free fall.

Then I felt my support but my heart was beating faster for a minute  from the fall

And then I was happy just swinging up in the air

I was busy taking a video that I missed the rope that I had to catch. Yes .  .  .  that's the rope.

As i wait for my rope, I enjoyed the moment left.

I got it the second time hee hee

They pulled me up

Stoked!

How true!

my certificate

You can do a lot more in Danao
