Bukidnon has tallest basejump tower in the Philippines
Bukidnon is home to the Philippines’ tallest basejump platform! Dahilayan Adventure Park, located in Barangay Dahilayan, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon has now introduced the SkyTower Base Jump, an 8-storey high basejump tower.
According to multi award-winning blogger Mindanaoan, basejumpers will be fitted with safety harnesses and a helmet and will need to walk along a see-thru plank. Once the person jumps, he or she will experience free fall, then gradual descent and finally slow landing. All these in less than 10 seconds.
Check out these photos taken by Engr. Elpie Paras, the owner of Dahilayan Adventure Park and PARASAT Cable TV:
The Skytower is the latest addition to Dahilayan’s roster of extreme adventure rides. When they first opened, Dahilayan Adventure Park introduced Asia’s longest dual cable zipline. They now also have the 3D zipline, rope maze and Dropzone etc.
Introductory price for Skytower: Php 500.00 per head. If you combine it with other rides at the park, just add Php 400.00 🙂
Include the Skytower in your travel plans! What I recommend: experience white water rafting first at Cagayan de Oro then go to Dahilayan for the ziplines and the basejump. Book with Great White Water Tours (sister company of Dahilayan Adventure Park). Only Great White rafting CDO offers the SAFEST and CHEAPEST raft + zipline (plus other park features) packages.
How to get to Dahilayan Adventure Park
Barangay Dahilayan, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon 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. (Turn right at the rotunda) Go straight ahead until you reach Camp Philips (this is where most Del Monte employees live). That’s about a twenty minute drive. Now from Camp Philips, drive down further until you reach Barangay Dahilayan. It’s another twenty minute drive. You’ll pass through pineapple fields and a rocky road. As soon as you reach Barangay Dahilayan, you will see an outpost where you’re supposed to pay P25.00 as “barangay fee” (for the maintenance of the road, if I’m not mistaken). Take note of the markers leading you towards Dahilayan Adventure Park, home of the longest dual cable zipline in Asia, located in Bukidnon, Mindanao.
