Do you crave that adrenaline rush you get from flying without having to pay an arm and a leg for a skydiving trip? Or are you bored with classroom discussions? A zip-lining is an aerial runway consisting of a cable suspended on a pulley system and mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user to use gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of an inclined cable through a free-moving pulley. Around the Philippines, there are several zip-line courses available to the public. Would you like to try? Have you tried already?

hello.! I tried zipline when I went to Tagaytay and I had so much fun. It's my dream to try bungee jumping, sky diving and ziplining so when I got the chance to try zipline, I grab it right away. If I will go to Tagaytay again, I will definitely do it again. But zip line their is short though it is good for first timers. I want to try the one in Davao, the longest and tallest zipline in Asia but it's too far away from me. I'm in Luzon.

Hi feodda! :) I love zip-lining! My first try on this was in La Mesa Ecopark. It has a short distance but I really enjoyed it. But now, I want to try the zipline that goes a long way. I've seen some in Sports Unlimited. They showed one in Davao and I hope I could try it someday. :)

That sounds a very exciting ride for me. I am not an adventurous kind of person but if I do have the opportunity I would like to try it for experience. I know there is a growing number of zip lining that is growing nationwide. I hope that I can find one in the near future to kill my curiosity about it.

I did try zip lining last December. It was great but there is really no adrenalin rush since you barely feel it because it is so fast. Before you know it it's over. I tried the one in Subic. The rapelling there is much better than the zipline. We went to Treetop adventure.

Have you? It was really fun. I tried it already in Subic and in Picnic Grove, Tagaytay. The one in Tagaytay is much cheaper than in Subic. Two-way (back and forth)ziplining cost is PHP400. If you want to have a souvenir picture of you hanging, you will have to pay another PHP100.
