Tree Top Adventure is located inside Camp John Hay, beside the Bell House Museum. They are conveniently located through the vastness of the tall and sturdy pine trees of Baguio. One can appreciate nature while having an adrenaline rush from their activities like Superman, Canopy Ride, Silver Surfer and Tree Drop.
When we went there, to our unfortunate luck, the rain poured hard. But that didn’t stop us to give Tree Top Adventure a try. Soshi and I were feeling adventuruous and hoping to try their Tree Drop ride, which is similar to a bungee jump.
Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by their staff . The first step was a de-briefing of what to expect from Tree Top Adventure. All rides are available except for the Tree Drop ride due to safety reasons (the ropes are slippery because of the non stop rain). We were downhearted but of course, our safety must always come first.
Ate was explaining to us how each rides work and instilled to us that we must be willing to “Get Wet and Dirty” for it is a nature activity. Soshi and I decided to try the Superman ride while our friends just settled for the Skywalk and Trekking.
We were directed to the pavillion where the second step was. We were asked to sign a waiver and claim our tickets.
We trekked down the mountain going to the Skywalk and Superman ride area. According to the map, were were suppose to trekk approximately half a mile to get there. The Skywalk is quite near the Superman ride so it was convenient for us.
Upon arriving the Superman ride, Soshi and I wore raincoats for us not to get soaked in the rain while on the ride.
The Superman ride is a 200 cable zipline 150 feet above the ground. As you traverse through the zipline, you’ll marvel through the amazing view of the mountain and trees. You’ll be hanging with full support and harness from the waist and you’ll have two poles that will support your arms and legs.
After the Superman ride, we resumed trekking back to the Skywalk area. The Skywalk is a large steel platform that has the astounding view of what they called the “Old Baguio”.
We also can barely see anything because of the thick fog. It’s as if we were in the movie “The Mist” where the whole area was engulfed with fog/mist. So, we just took some pictures and enjoyed the cool breeze.
It was unfortunate that it rained but we were able to enjoy ourselves at Tree Top Adventure. It would be more fun to try and experience the other rides like the Tree Drop (which we were dying to try), the Silver Surfer and Canopy. It would be best to check the weather first before going there to fully experience the thrill of their rides and also to appreciate the marvelous view of the mountains of Baguio.
