Cagayan De Oro City

Cagayan De Oro City Philippines

Cagayan de Oro is a coastal city facing the Macajalar Bay. Several creeks and rivers run through the city. The southern portion of the city is dominated by hills, gorges, plateau and mountain ranges of Bukidnon province.[1] The city is known by many nicknames such as "Gateway to Northern Mindanao", "City of Whitewater Rafting and River Trekking", "ICT Goldmine of the Philippines" and "A City in Bloom, Blossom and in BOOM!". Officially, Cagayan de Oro is known as "Dakbayan sa Bulawanong Panaghigalaay" or in English the "City of Golden Friendship". The phrase is part of the official city seal. For more information

Last March 2006 I, together with my officemates went to Cagayan de Oro for a business trip but of course, we didn’t let our work enslave us! After our tasked is finished we decided to go around and explore Cagayan de Oro. The office manager for our provincial branch brought us to the Macahambus Adventure Park where we did all sorts of crazy stuff like Skybridge, Zipline and Rappelling. It’s my first time to try those things and I was so happy and excited to try those extreme (but not too extreme for me) sports.

We wanted to remember that trip for the rest of our lives that is why we made sure we have photos of every activity that we did. A funny thing that happened is that during the zipline we asked a lady to take pictures of us but because it all happened so fast she was only able to capture the background.

After all that we went to Macahambus Cave. It was a very short cave with a river at the end wherein you can see where the famous white water rafting activities is happening.

Well, that’s the end of our journey. Make sure that once you visit Cagayan de Oro you won’t miss out on buying one of their famous delicacies, the sweet yummy Pastel for pasalubong.

If you want to experience Zipline, Skybridge and Rappelling it’s PHP500 each but if you want to try only the skybridge and zipline it’ll be PHP300 pesos each.

The Macahambus Adventure Park is conveniently located at Barangay Lumbia, a 25-minute ride from the heart of the city, and 10 minutes from the airport. More Photos...
