How To Get To Dahilayan Adventure Park

From Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines, take the Bukidnon-Davao highway in Bugo. From the Alae Junction, proceed 25km to Barangay Dahilayan past Camp Phillips and the pineapple fields via Mampayag.

Planning to bring in your SUV to save on transportation costs? Don't! It is not worth it. At least that is from my experience. The road going there is pretty bad. Yes. An SUV or pickup is just what you need. But really, if you go there during non-peak seasons then good! You can go back home without worries because it will still be daytime.

Come peak season, you would have to go there early. They open at 9am but it is advisable you arrive there, maybe 8am. Going to Camp Phillips from Cagayan de Oro takes 30 minutes by your own transportation, then another 30 minutes to Dahilayan Adventure Park.

You can rent their transportation at P2,500.00 good for 10 pax which is what I would advise you to do because if you reach nightfall, chances are you may get lost going back because there are no lights plus there are no signs. There is no problem going to the zip zone because there are many signs to guide you. But going back? Nah-uh. Ironic huh?! Add the bad visibility at night and if it fogs, you will have to drive slowly.

A short burst of rain also hit us while waiting for our turns, so it was pretty scary when nightfall hit us and we went back to the city the wrong way, the road was pretty muddy I had to drive the SUV very slow because there was a portion in the pineapple fields that made the car swerve a bit like it was out of control. Really scary!

Still, the choice is up to you. They do not accept reservations during peak seasons so it is a first come first serve basis. Better get there early. It is good to experience the long zip line during daytime. We experienced it at exactly 6pm. Good thing there was a clear sky and the moon shone brightly on the area so we were able to see the environment while zipping past the trees. Great experience! Fly like superman! ;)
