    Mount Everest Zipline Located in Don Salvador Benedicto, Negros Occidental. Please watch this short video. P.S. Sorry for the video as this is taken along with a motorcycle ride.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QFGzZK3-S4

  • Marlon Rey Anacleto

    The AUTHOR failed to research! DON SALVADOR BENEDICTO is the longest ZIPLINE in the Philippines which spans 1.7kms! Try the REAL THRILL!

    • Where in the article did the author say “longest zipline”? He just said “crazy long.” I don’t think that means “longest.”

      • Marlon Rey Anacleto

        I never said that. He failed to include the longest zipline in the phil. Hence, he failed to research more. Why do you think? Your making your own assumptions.

        • To be fair, the article is titled “Amazing Zip Lines Around the Philippines,” not really “Record-Breaking Zip Lines Around the Philippines.” The word “amazing” is subjective and the author is free to add zip lines he personally thinks are amazing. You are also free to make a list of your very own amazing zip lines in the country. 🙂

            WOW ANG TALINO AH!!! DUMUDUGO ATA ILONG KO SA WORD na “AMAZING”….tsk tsk tsk zipline lang yan… lumabas at magpaaraw hindi yung puro critic…

  • jcrav

    Are all the equipment certified by third parties? I have some doubts about the line holding the neck. That’s a hangman’s noose if something goes awry with the other two connections. Remember, except for the neck strap, the body is not directly connected to the line. Some safety inspectors should look at this at have it inspected and certified. How often are the equipment inspected. I don’t think any insurance would cover this stuff.

  • Zhane Kong Chua

    wow!… it is really great!.. i need to find time for these..

    On the other hand. You can take a van from Koronadal to Lake Sebu. Just tell the trike driver to get you on Lake Sebu Van terminal. Or you can just walk from bus terminal to Van terminal.
