Because we wanted to make the most out of our stay in CDO. Me and my friends decided to try zipline and whitewater rafting!(actually i don’t have budget for that nga eh hahaha pero since naroon narin lang ako eh why not GO saGO nalng! Bahala na si Batman 😂.
We availed all zipzone rides (it was 3 rides po). They have three ziplines in the park and tones of activity such as zorb, ATV or horse riding. In zipline 320mt is the first ride, 150mt is the 2nd ride then last is the 840mt (longest dual zipline).
Are you afraid of the Rapids ?
yell! hell yeaH!😊 but yes, I overcome this!!
Have you ever heard whitewater rafting at Cagayan De Oro? Yes, if you are updated it was actually visit and tried by our past president and tourism secretary several years ago to promote Cagayan de Oro’s top adventure activity. I highly recommend this activity!
We booked package activity that includes zipline and rafting with free lunch. The package cost around 2,400 php per person including all ride zipline and a 4 hours whitewater rafting which I think is really a good deal. I’m so scared coz that was my first time doing whitewater rafting and I didn’t have any idea how to do it pa. Plus, I heard some story pa na natanggalan daw sila ng ipin dahil sa tumama ang mukha sa mga bato or naipit sa ilalim ng rubber boat something like that! whaaa parang gusto ko na nga magback out that time pero naisip ko palng yung 2,400 na ibinayad ko hahaha bumabalik yung mga paa ko! hahaha 😂
Good thing about this activity is that you don’t need to form a group just to do whitewater rafting. All you have to do is book a trip to CDO and go directly to the company that offers this kind of activity, and they’ll pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the destination (Cagayan River). Don’t worry if you’re just one or couples because they will re-group you with other guests.
KATIBAWASAN FALLS – (Camiguin Island, Philippines)
Katibawasn falls is located at the foot of Mt. Timpoong, 5Km(3.1 mi) southeast of Mambajao, it measures 250 ft high. down into a man-made pool surrounded by orchids and wild greenly ferns. Water is superb relaxing and really cold but not good for diving :). From downtown Mambajao, you can hire a habal-habal or multicab that will takes 5-10 minutes travel.
You only have to pay 20 php entrance fee (per person) to be able to see and experience the Katibawasan falls.
The sight of nature was superb and worth it! . It was a perfect place to sink in after a long hours stay in white beach and for me it was even colder than the cold spring :). The falls was simply spectacular! The water was coming from high above the cliff and falling down like a giant shower!!
After we explore the beauty of white island, we all had to go back to our cottage for a quick lunch before we finally visited all the other notable tourist spots in the area.
FIRST STOP OVER: Catarman Church Ruins (Gui-Ob Church). The Old Catarman Church Ruinsis located in Bonbon, it was the remains of the 1871 volcanic eruption that wiped outCatarmanwhich was a picture of the illustrious Spanish settlement that was established in 1697, only the adobe walls and belfry was left as of today that survived the devastating wrath of nature. Nakaka-amazed yung structure kasi sabi ni manong tourist guide eh gawa daw sa corals yung church which is true nga 😀
Try to visit Camiguin 🙂 A Hawaii version of the Philippines. Wherein there is lots of mountain and active volcanoes that offer nice view on the Island. This place is really blessed on its cultural, and rich historical treasures that you will never forget. I should say Camiguin is indeed beautiful and I will call it paradise 🙂
Leny and I
I really like the uninhabited white island called white sand beach. It ‘s about 1-2 kilometer far from the shore. Good thing is that we rented a cottage that is nearly close to the beach 😊. During high tides, this sand bar submerges on the sea and in low tide, you can actually go there and enjoy the fine sand and crystal clear water plus the nice view of Mt. Hibok-hibok.
I was there last July 14-17 this year and I was truly amazed by its own beauty.
To Start with:
If you like to go there with your friends or family it’s nice to booked package trip. Cebu pacific and Airphil offer this package just check their site 😊
And from Cagayan de Oro Airport (picture above), take a cab going to the bus station near Ororama in Lapasan, siguro mga 4 thousand and bayad namin 😊. After that, board a bus going to Balingoan port which takes 1 1/2 hours ride(aircon) and 2 to 3 hours if (ordinary bus). You can also hired a van na makikita on the bus stations if you like a hassle free na biyahe. I suggest it to get a van 😊 para mas enjoy pa kasi kayo-kayo lang with your friends at walang stop over in short makakapagpahinga pa kayo ng maayos at di masyadong pagod 😊
From the port (Balingoan), take any of the ferries that follow an hourly schedule going to either ports of Guinsiliban or Benoni in Camiguin. Ferry fee are affordable abot kaya ng bulsa mga 250 pesos per head but don’t expect modern types of boat eto yung tipo nang ferry na kelangan dun ka malapit sa life vest hahaha!
