Cebu Canyoneering | Best Adventure in South

Cebu

Canyoneering is a kind of travel that requires a technical descent. It may include other outdoor activities such as trekking, scrambling, jumping, rappelling and swimming.

Our day started around 2AM at Mc Donald’s where we meet Sir Choy one of our good friend in Cebu. He’s the one who arranged our service Van and serves as our main Technical Instructor for Canyoneering Activity.

Canyoneering is an adventure trek which usually takes at least 3 hours to finish. There are options where to begin. One option is in the town of Alegria and the other one is in adjacent town of Badian.

As per experience if you want to visit the Majestic Kawasan Falls, don’t hesitate to choose the Badian jump-off where the end point leads to Kawasan Falls as a bonus reward.

The present rate is 1000php – 1500php for each person, covering the fee for tour guide, safety gear and a habal-habal ride to nearby barangays.

They also offer ukay-ukay shoes which is durable enough. Since my shoes were damaged from our yesterday activity I don’t have any choice but to avail it. The rental process is quick and efficient lol. It cost about 50php for a day.

all right!

At exactly 11:00AM, we rode a habal-habal going to the jump-off point. It was approximately 15 minutes of rough road ride. Then a 15 minutes descent all the way to the river.

Before starting the activity, our guide gave some additional tips and answered any questions. All of the instructions for using the equipment were both verbally and visually addressed. Safety,plus enjoyment, were of prime concern.

Did a beginner level canyoneering tour with guides led by Sir Choy. They were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. In fact they were easily the best guides we have ever had (naks).

The first jump was comfortable. We were greeted by some of the large rock and a beautiful landscape. We did 3 jump with a party of scrambling, mainly novices like ourselves. They did not just rope us in and let us go, they taught us to do it ourselves and were diligent about watching and checking.

At the last part of “jump station” you would be amazed that there are also food terminals (ihaw-ihaw station) where you can have a snack before the final jump.

Surrounded by stunning landscapes and amazing scenery, we have the best places in the world. We just have to discover and rediscover it 😉 .

This takes it to the next level – having the confidence to carefully watch is far more difficult than just taking over. We were challenged to an appropriate level and the high jump was exhilarating. All in all an experience I would do again in a heartbeat.

The group wanted to do more. Some of us jumped not one but twice!. It was the highlight of our trip out south. No regular outdoor activity will compare. I promise you will love every moment and make awesome memories with your friend. Just a friendly tip, always check your camera and make it steady always to avoid some droplets and blurred photos. I’m sure all of the guides are great, but I would like to thank Sir Choy and the rest of our guides for an amazing day!
