Zip Line Opens Soon In Calbayog City

Zip, Zip, and Away!

It’s almost official, the long-awaited Zip Line Adventure located at Malajog Beach is now open for testing!  I’m sure it won’t be much longer and it will be open to the public¹. Also, a nature trail that winds through dense forest and over marble and limestone formations offers hidden caves and overlook points of view along the way before the reaching the end of the trail at the top of the rocky point that is the tip of Malajog Ridge.

According to the project engineer, Ashley Albaña, the nature trail and overlooks are also a part of the Malajog Tourism Development Project. The eco-trail follows along Malajog Ridge almost a kilometer, starting a few meters off the national highway in Barangay Malajog. The zip line begins at the top of Malajog Point and ends at Daraga Islet across from Malajog Beach. The zip line is estimated to cover a distance of about 850 meters and is considered the country’s first “mountain to island” zip line by local sources. It is also considered one of the longest zip lines in the country. The zip trip lasts nearly 1 minute and 10 seconds.

Personally, I haven’t been out there yet but rumors put the cost of the zipline adventure at P200.  I’m also not sure about the return trip arrangements and I’m sure it is by pump boat… but maybe it will be cheaper if you are allowed to swim your way back! The cost of just walking the Nature Trail is P20 with no Zipline pass.

Note:
1. An update to opening day has been provided to me by nature trail officials to be the 23rd of April delayed until after the elections on May 9th. Finishing touches are being applied to the comfort rooms and other launch area facilities.
