The experience is like flying. Whether in Dahilayan Forest Park or Kampo Juan in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon, both anicycling and ziplining are exhilarating experiences.
Check out our photos of visiting these two adventure destinations, options for the experience of mountain ecosystems for our students.
1. Dahilayan Forest Park, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon.
Our trip to Dahilayan was around 1.5 hours from Cagayan de Oro City. Taking the BuDa (Bukidnon-Davao) Highway, we turned right on the Alae Junction. (To know if the Alae Junction is near, a quarantine station with a row of vendors selling sari-sari store goodies is before the junction.) From the junction, we just followed the road to Dumilag, the Del Monte Pineapple Plantation, Camp Philips’ soccer field, Mampayag and the dirt road towards Mt. Kitanglad. What was reassuring are the road signs indicating the way to Dahilayan Forest Park.
2. Kampo Juan, Brgy. Dicklum, Manolo Fortich.
The first time I came to Kampo Juan was during the pilgrimage of the Lorenzo Ruiz Filipino-Chinese parish community in 2013. The end of the pilgrimage was the Monastery of St. Clare in Malaybalay, Bukidnon.
Kampo Juan is named after Dr. Juan Acosta who developed this destination. He has planted several fruit trees and other plants in the land. His various species of plants can be enjoyed while walking leisurely around the property. But it is better if you take the long hanging bridge about 200 feet above the river.
In the second visit, I tried the Anicycle but I got nervous. Who wouldn’t?
Here’s a video of all these adventures plus our white water rafting in Cagayan de Oro City.
