When in Bacolod: Conquer Everest Zipline

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Who’s up for some adventure? Prepare to face your fears and conquer the highest and longest zipline in the Philippines.  Everest Zipline is situated at Don Salvador Benedicto, Negros Occidental which is regarded as one of the coolest places in the country.  It takes about an hour from Bacolod City to get there. The place was built by the group who ventured into the Mt. Everest Expedition Team which is where the zipline got its name from.  The zipline is suspended at about 1000 feet above the ground and the one way route extends for one kilometer.

At first I was really scared.  I mean who wouldn’t?  But you know you just have to be tough enough and do what you’ve always wanted to do which is to live young, wild and free.  This place will make you forget all your worries.

Before ziplining, safety first

DCIM101GOPROTime for some selfie.  For the whole time, I’ve been maintaing a hard grip with my gopro.  The wind was just too strong, I might have dropped my camera and never find it again. hahah!

You can go back to the venue and just enjoy the view while having coffee at their restaurant.

Travel tips:

  • If you’re underweight, you have to have a partner.  If you don’t have and still go through with it, you might get stranded in the middle.  It’s your call.
  • If you’ll use monopods, make sure to have a leash to make you camera secured.  For those using gopros, if you have mounts for the helmet, you can bring them to get better shots since the place doesn’t have one.
  • If you wish to have lunch there, you can but you have to call beforehand and make reservations.
  • Enjoy!

Budget:

150 – Bus

400 – Zipline

250 – Lunch

  1. Do they have a transfer service for your bags to be delivered from Point A to Point B or do you have to go back to Point A to get your packs?

      Yep they have a transfer service. You can just talk to the crew if you want your bags delivered to Point B so that you don’t have to return back for your belongings
