Chocolate Hills Adventure Park BOHOLFriday, July 25, 2014
Happy 3 ChaMike in Bohol | CHAP
|Chocolate Hills Adventure Park|
As I mentioned from my previous posts Bohol was not really new to me since I visited it four years ago but a trip to the Chocolate Hills Adventure Park was my first. Officially opened last year after the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Bohol on October 2013, CHAP became tourists' alternate destination for viewing the Chocolate Hills when the original view deck was damaged.
|Entrance of CHAP|
After paying a fee of P60 for the entrance we saw ourselves on a walkway above a pond full of fishes.
|A new and private owned tourism site|
On the left side was a restaurant named Cusina ni Tisay which offers buffet lunch for P300.
At the front we were greeted by a receptionist asking us if we were up for an extreme adventure. They offer a number of activities tourists might be interested to try such as Hiking, Camping, Tree Top Rope Challenge and the most famous Bike Zip.
|Paying for the Bike Zip|
Being very eager to try the Bike Zip Mike decided to face his fear of heights so we paid P400 each for the ultimate experience. Terms and conditions apply such as :
1. Tickets are transferable
2. Tickets are non-refundable (so no backing out!)
3. Guests should sign a waiver form and are subject to a health evaluation by a registered nurse.
|blood pressure- check!|
Going to the view deck we should pass through a hanging bridge
And then we have to climb up the 248 steps… It's not even the challenge yet but I was already tired!
|Just a few more...|
But the overwhelming view made us forget we were exhausted. The refreshing panorama of the well known Chocolate Hills was breathtaking. As you can see the hills are not brown as what its name promised because of the rainy season. It turns brown during dry season or summer.
|Wonderful waves of hills|
|green domed hills <3|
Although the view from up here was farther than the original view we were accustomed to see, it still had a wonderful backdrop for tourists who would like to take photos with the hills.
|Another obligatory shot|
So after appreciating the glorious Chocolate Hills it was time to do the extreme challenge (Here we go!!!)
Yes, after climbing the 248 steps we also had to climb this tower too (hayayay!)
|a few more steps up!|
The Bike Zip is basically riding a bicycle from a stainless steel cable suspended in the sky 100 feet from the ground.
I was so giddy at first but when I was actually about to make my first pedal I became scared as hell and was about to back out frightened that I might fall down.
|Taking all the courage I could muster|
|Struggling my way|
So when I finally finished the first course, I went back with a stronger mind and an excited heart. The second course was about appreciating the view and enjoying the one of a kind adventure.
|I even managed to wave :)|
Of course the Babe finished with flying colors!
|Proud of this boy!|
|Look! No hands!|
By the way cameras & phones are not allowed even the ones with lace.
|Photo op :)|
There is an official photographer who takes your picture and you can buy a print out for P100 each. You can also ask them to save all your photos in your flash drive or if you don't have any you can ask them to send it thru your email address like what we did with no added cost.
|Survivors! Yeah! :p|
