We all woke up early Saturday morning getting prepped up for the not so long journey to Dahilayan, Bukidnon. It was a 2-hour long journey to the place. Before getting there, you will definitely pass by the Del Monte pineapple plantation. The long and wide plantation was such a sight to see. Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of the plantation. Two hours went on til we reached the Dahilayan Eco Adventure Park.
We first stopped by the lobby to check in.
Our room wasn’t at the same building ‘coz our reservations were made at the new Pine Grove Mountain Lodge building right in front of the main one. We stayed on the 3rd floor.
We settled ourselves in upon reaching our room and picked our places respectively. The room can actually accommodate at least 6 but we had to get an extra bed coz we were seven in total. There were 4 beds plus the extra single bed (2 beds up the loft). It has a TV with cable and a hot and cold shower. We needed the hot shower badly coz it was bloody cold up there. We had our lunch in our room which we had already prepared at home. After resting and munching, we prepped ourselves again for the long day ahead.
One of our daily doses of happiness and optimism; my nephew at 8 months.

We headed then to Forest Park.
It costs Php100.00 for a horse ride.
You have to pay an entrance free of Php100.00 on weekends/holidays and only Php50.00 on weekdays. Then you’ll get stamped on with their logo.
There are lots to do inside Forest Park.

More Koi near the entrance of the Picnic Ground.
We then went back to the Adventure Park to check on the rides.
We first rode the newest of the rides which is the Python Zipride Coaster. It is Philippine’s first Roller Zipline and Asia’s Longest Zipline Roller Coaster. We zipped, rolled, rattled, dropped, swung and bounced over 500 meters. Watch the videos below!
For better viewing, watch the videos in HD on Youtube.
After the ride, we had to climb a flight of stairs again going back to Forest Park to dine. On our way, we encountered a man carrying a Philippine Reticulated Python.
Props to the birthday girl, my niece AESHA, for courage.

We dined at Forest Cafe.
The food was delish. Two of us had Sizzling Roast Pork. The others had Sinigang (Sour Fish Soup), Chicken Adobo, Fish Fillet, Lechon Kawali and Sizzling Roast Beef.
Upon leaving Forest Park, we had to experience shaking and shivering.
