Everyone wants to make summer memorable and somehow different from last year’s experience. That’s why we’ve listed different extreme activities you might -or should I say “will” – consider this summer. Adrenaline Junkies this is for you, guys!!
The Plunge is a ravine swing, an own version of bungee jumping, wherein you swing downwards as opposed to plunging straight to the ground. Guess what, the tallness of the cliff is 60-meters high. I’ll recommend to simply close your eyes. Kidding! You should appreciate the view and the experience of the 60-meter high fall. The travel will allow two hours if you rent a private service, but if you travel by Danao bus and Habal-Habal, it can take up to three hours. The Plunge costs ₱ 700 and you can try it at E.A.T Danao Adventure Park, Bohol.
After we get so high from the swing of the plunge, why not try another adrenaline rush activity in the rough water, check this Whitewater Rafting and Cliff Jumping experience.
Whitewater Rafting involves riding on a raft while paddling across river rapids. The sport has already been around for years, but travelers have recently rediscovered this extreme activity. There’s a lot of packages basic activity costs ₱ 1,800 and you can try it at Great White Water Tours in Cagayan de Oro.
Cliff Jumping doesn’t require any equipment to use, nor special water sports clothing to wear. It will be just your body, sailing through the air from dizzying heights and plunging into the body of water down below. The Cliff Diving costs 6,000/ person (Full Day; 3 jump locations) and 3,000/ person (Half Day; 1 jump location) This package is minimum of 2 people.

Lastly, a superhero experience that we should try!
Tandem flights are similar to skydiving. Each dive will include two persons- the passenger is seated in front, while the pilot is at the back of the passenger guiding him while on air. The pilot can allow the passenger to take control of the parachute for a greater experience with guidance.
