Subic Tree Top Adventure

I had a hard time thinking where to spend my birthday last march 31, well I decided to have an adrenaline rush and went to Subic Tree Top Adventure.

Where we were suspended like 60 meters above the ground for zip lines (superman ride),canopy, Tree Drop (this is soooOoo scary, my knees were shaking after!) and the survival demo (sooo tiring)..As they say,
Get High on Nature with Tree Top Adventure!

We took a bus to Subic from Victory Liner (Pasay) and took a cab from Subic freeport to the Subic Treetop Adventure. Well, it was super fun, I was with Ivy ruth and my lakwatsera buddies Joy and Tin. So let's begin!

Survival Demo
The survival demo required trekking for about 10-15 minutes. I was so tired and sweating maybe because I havent had any physical activities for the past months. We were taught how to build fire from treebarks and bamboo, types of plants that can be water sources and the like. Its was fun, a good learning experience and it brought me back to my girl scout days.hehe

Canopy Walk
We started with the canopy walk, which was boring for me. You'll just walk through their jungle trails situated 50-60 feet above the ground. Its not really scary and I actually felt safe because the suspension bridges were made of metal and doesnt really move when you walk like a hanging bridge.

safety first

lezzz go!


Its a good thing hey have lockers where you can leave your things. They also have a store inside where you can buy drinks and food.

Another thing I liked about the experience is that the staff was great. They were so nice and they really made us feel safe and comfortable.

Canopy Chair Lift Ride
In the canopy chair ride, you'll get to see the view around the place. I just sat there and appreciated the nature surrounding me. The ride was pretty slow though and may last up to 1.5 hours depending on how long you take to disembark and linger at each station.


The Superman Experience
The superman ride was great. It was just like the zipline found in Tagaytay People's Park but the difference is once you get to the end, it would pull you back to the starting point and the ride was faster compared to the one in Tagaytay.

PS. My only complain is that the harness was painful because they place it around the stomach.

Tree Drop
The tree drop adventure is my favorite, its the best. Im not really afraid of heights and I wasnt scared but after this ride, my knees were shaking.  It was such an adrenaline rush and I want to do it again!
