Welcome to DAHILAYAN!
Let me take you to one of Mindanao’s tourist most visited high grounds. And this is how we spent our Valentines (2013)..
When I first saw the movie of KC Conception and Sam Milby, titled Forever and A Day last 2011, I was 21 back then, I fell inlove with the location (
not much with the story, its a sad love story because KC has to die) they are shooting . Later i knew it was at Bukidnon. By then I promise to myself I really want to go there and try all there adventurous amenities (I ❤ adventures!) , later I will tell you more stories about that.
3 years after (2014), God was so generous when I was able to put those almost-forgotten dream, to realize. Our SFC International Conference will be held at Cagayan De Oro City. Since Bukidnon is just right before Cagayan de Oro, we had some side trips going to Dahilayan Forest & Adventure Park.
Everything was beautiful. Green, Cool, Fresh Air.. All very relaxing in the eyes. We have passed one house there that you would feel like you were in some other places like those old movies of France, +++ the climate, perfect!
When we get there, we were on a van. Buses could not move in , i believe, because the road was too narrow & slippery so if you plan to have your vacation there, better yet ride on multiple vans if you were too many.
When you get there, approaching the entrance you’ll see side vendors selling sweet corn, and other fresh fruits. Prices are quite higher but not too expensive. And by the way, NO ENTRANCE FEE at Adventure Park ONLY at Forest Park for Php 100, both have separate entrance. The Forest Park comes right after the Adventure Park. You are free to take pictures anywhere. Only the rides has tickets. Mostly costs from Php 250-700.
You can also have horse-back riding from outside the park at Php 20 only. These are not too tall horses, very friendly they’re not gonna kick you off hahaha. I can tell, see these photos:
Restaurants are available also inside. Hotels for those who’d like to stay few days there, are just around the corner.
Let our photos tell you more! Thanks for reading! 🙂
