|That's my back alright!|
Ilagan town in Isabela has pioneered one of the most exciting manmade outdoor activities in the Cagayan Valley Region... Zipline!
Okey, it was a leap of faith, literally, after making a hurried sign of the cross, i have to cheat really and jumped from the lowest point of the ramp, hahaha!
Opened last May 4, 2012 inside the Ilagan Sanctuary, Ilagan, Isabela, the town is fast becoming an activity center for outdoor sports with the addition of the Zipline facility. About 350 meters long, the zipline starts from a height of 75 feet and lands at about five feet above ground. It is said to be the fastest zipline in the country at a speed of 80 kilometers per hour moving on gravity because the area is not yet energize at the moment, scary?
At present visitors to the area come as day tourists and because it is located within a natural park, the area is very conducive for nature base activities like caving, waterfalls exploration and bathing or just lazing around the pool.
Although there are places to buy lunch and snacks, it's better to bring your lunch for a big group or try your hands at grilling at designated areas with picnic huts. The drinking water provided by nature has an 8.5 ph rating and so good to drink, fill up your water bottle.
Your loving it already? go to the Pinzal waterfalls and swim your heart out, or take the horse and tour the area at P100.00 for a 30 minutes ride.
There's no noise there, just getting close to nature, enjoy the birds and the bees and the monkeys. And to get uphill the zipline, take the 210 cemented steps, rest a little while to enjoy the view before plunging towards down the landing!
