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!
Say hello to my fellow thrill seekers Moi and Des: (photo courtesy of Inquirer/Cai Panlilio)
Located at the verdant Dahilayan Adventure Park in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon (an hour’s drive away from nearby Cagayan de Oro City, Northern Mindanao), Asia’s longest Dual Cable Zipline is now open for business. Check out the rates below: (do note that these are introductory rates only)
Fast facts about this zipline adventure in Northern Mindanao:
– Dual Carrying cables each 840 meters long point to point
– Safety cable also 840 meters long
– Total length of cables: 2,460 meters
– Elevation drop: 100meters
– Estimated speed: 60-100KPH
– Launch point Location at 4000 ft ASL
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.
thank you for promoting DAHILAYAN Adventure Park 🙂 really appreciate it.
Are ziplines safe? This is the single, most-important question you can ask about the whole zipline industry. The answer is quite simple: it depends.
Ziplines are very safe when they are (a) installed by ethical and competent professionals, who are working within the respected engineering standards, (b) when the materials used in the creation of the zipline, such as the steel cable and the helmets and harnesses, are provided by legitimate dealers, (c) when the zipline is managed and owned by competent, well-trained staff who take good care of the guests and the zipline infrastructure.
Ziplines are dangerous when they are installed informally by people who have no idea what they are doing, who cut costs by using substandard equipment, and when the zipline is run by people who are poorly trained, overworked, in a big rush, or apathetic about the safety of their guests.–From Internet–
Hi Warlito, I guess the zipline owners naman are doing their best to ensure the safety of the customers.
@rina – you’re welcome! i’ll bring my brothers next time. sana may discount na! =D
awesome my sister’s would deffinitely love this place they have tried the zipline in baguio and tagaytay. another reason why to visit bukidnon

@Walter – Hi there, thank you for visiting my humble blog! Have fun in Dahilayan! You might want to read this newer blog post of mine 🙂
tanong lang..nasa davao ako..ilang rides bah papunta dyan? from bukidnon bus terminal/ bus stop ano next sakyan? gsto ko kac dyan kami magcelebrate ng gf ko dyan sa zip line..gift ko sa kanya..
@Cer – Hello, from Davao bus terminal, it’s just 1 ride lang. Ride the bus going to Cagayan de Oro via BUDA. Stop at Malaybalay City. Fare is around P300 pag aircon. From Malaybalay bus terminal, just ride motorela/multicab around the city. Malaybalay is where most of the activities will be held.
so from malaybalay b, anong pedeng sakyan papuntang zipzone? ilang oras din papunta dun?
Hi Sam, from Malaybalay, you can ride a bus towards Cagayan de Oro. Stop at the ALAE junction. From there, you can take a habal-habal motorcycle towards Dahilayan or you can rent a multicab. From Alae, it will take about half an hour to reach Zipzone. Have fun there!
Wow its great, i didn’t know that Mindanao has the longest Zipline in Asia. I love adventure sports and have tried ziplining in India, really good entertaining adventure activity.
I will be traveling to this part of the world in the next few weeks. I am interested in visiting this place (Zip Zone). Please, kindly send me information, literature, brochures etc etc…AND prices to Zip Zone. Thank You for your time. I hope to hear from you soon.

Please contact me…would like to make reservations for 3! 09993731184
hi,i think it’s the outland adventure xcelerator in davao city that’s still the longest and fastest zipline in asia.It is 1000meters long and travels 1ooKPH.
Hi! I’ve been to Outland (you can search for my blog entry about them here on Mindanaoan.com 🙂 ) but it’s not the longest. They have the fastest zipline, yes, but not the longest.
hi, i will have my vacation at ozamiz this weekend and im planning to go to your place the on monday…can you please help me how i could get there via public transportation?
Hi May, from Ozamiz, ride a bus towards CDO. There’s a shuttle service from CDO but I think it leaves early. Better contact Dahilayan na lang so you can be taken care of
We are planning to go there, Can you please provide to us a place where we can stay. Single Bedroom at affordable rate. What will be the best that we can get on to get their faster, Bus? Taxi? Jeep?
@Joniel – Dahilayan has an inn. Not sure about the prices, though.
hi..my friend just came back in the Phil and we wanted to try ziplining. how much would it cost in dahilayan and if theres any place to stay there …any info is appreciated
Hi Reu, the prices for the zipline rides are found in the blog entry above 🙂 They also have an inn/lodge there. Have fun!
Is it safe to go zip lining =| 🙂 ?
Yes of course!
