E.A.T (Exciting Adventure Tour) in Danao, Bohol

November 2009 - we joined my sister Mabz and her friends on their Bohol Trip. We spent 4 days and 3 night to tour around Bohol.

The best part of our trip was on our 3rd day where we spent the whole day experiencing extreme adventures in the mountain of Danao. Beware to those who have fear in heights, this is not the place for you, but if you want to overcome your fear, try it and you'll definitely have fun!

The first ride we tried was the ZIPLINE or ZIPLET... Sounds ordinary right? ... But imagine yourself passing through one mountain to the other, 200 meters above ground with nothing holding you but a piece of cable, it's nerve wrecking at first but as you go along...SARAP!!! it's super stress reliever and as you go against the wind, everything you worry about will also be blown away. It's a 15 minute ride going to one end and another 15 minutes going back. You have the option to go solo or have someone to experience the journey with you seeing the breathtaking view of Bohol. Rate: P100/pax.

Next on our list was the PLUNGE... Plunge: a canyon swing adventure attraction mounted over a 200 meter high and 300 meter wide gorge. A person would have to do a 45 meters free fall before being launched on a pendulum swing measuring to a hundred meter diameter. Cable has a maximum working load of 5 tons. Now longer (70 meters) more fear some. One has to literally plunge to an open air where about two seconds, the plunger will all be defenseless, feel nothing and left all alone. This experience is one great way to de-stress and even make one appreciate life the more. Total experience will just take around 10min. Rate: Php 700.

“The Plunge” is the best “fear factor” experience among other adventure activities on offer. Only few from our group tried this and one of them was me of course. Boyfie was stopping me from trying it like the space shuttle in Enchanted Kingdom. But this time, I really fought for my freedom and off I went to Plunge. Yeppiiiii! Sarap!!! ... We got certificates afterwards as a reminder of our bravery ^_^.

The last that we tried was the CAVING. There are two options that you can choose from. If you are beginners, the moderate caving will suit you better. Rate: P350/pax. But if you want extreme adventure, you can try the Extreme Caving for P500/pax. There will be tour guides who will be assisting you and get your pictures... Yes, you read it right, they will not allow you to take pictures especially with Flash ON since it is burning the crystals inside the cave. Allow them to take your pictures instead, they know the best spots and the safest spots to take pictures.

During our time, we only tried the moderate caving since it was raining then and the Extreme Cave is almost full of water.

There are few more adventures that this place offers like the Offroad Buggy, Skide Ride, Suislide, River Trekking, River Tubing, River Kayaking, Wall Climbing, Cliff Rappelling and Root Climbing... but you have to stay for another day to do all of these activities... and it will definitely slash off your budget.  Although now a days, they already created the Nature Lover Package which includes any 3 of the activities mentioned above.  Package prices ranges from P1,400 to P2,300 / pax.

If I am going back to Bohol, I will skip all the city trips but go straight to Danao and experience all those activities that we haven't tried yet.  ^_^
