Two Sundays ago, I and two fellow bloggers from Bukidnon, Bon and Tupe, were featured in GMA7's Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho Summer Special. In that particular episode (click HERE if you missed the show), we showcased some of the outdoor adventure activities one can experience in Bukidnon. These include trying out the thrill rides in Dahilayan Adventure Park.
Ever since that episode was shown, readers of this blog have been asking me on how to get to Dahilayan Adventure Park by commuting. While getting to the park in your own vehicle is relatively easy, commuting to this side of Bukidnon can be a bit tricky. Though I haven't tried it yet, I am very much aware that a lot of people have done it. So I made a quick research and fortunately, I found some great tips on how to commute to Dahilayan Adventure Park ,whether you're coming from Cagayan de Oro or from Davao City (or other southern parts of Bukidnon).
First of all, know that Dahilayan Adventure Park is located in Barangay Dahilayan, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. Manolo Fortich is a northern municipality of Bukidnon and is nearest to Cagayan de Oro City. Barangay Dahilayan is situated in the southwestern side of the town proper and is nestled at the foot of Mount Kitanglad Range. Here's the location map of the park:

You have two options on how to commute to Dahilyan Adventure Park if you're coming from Cagayan de Oro City:
Option 1. There's a Zipzone Shuttle from Cagayan de Oro to Dahilayan Adventure Park every Saturday, from 8:00-8:30 AM, at Coffeworks in Divisoria. Round trip fare is Php 350.00 per person. Travel time is about one-and-a-half hour. The airconditioned mini-bus leaves Dahilayan for Cagayan de Oro on the same day at around 3 to 4 PM. For details and reservations, contact 09228801319.
Option 2. Go to the Agora Bus Terminal/Market City and take either a van or jeepney ride to Brngy. Camp Philips, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. The van terminal is located outside Mang Inasal while the jeep terminal is at the nearest corner. Once you're in Camp Philips, take a habal-habal (motorcycle) ride to Dahilayan Adventure Park. Habal-habal fare could be around Php 150-200 per person, depending on your negotiation with the driver. Be aware that the road could get rough and dusty in some portions of the route.
If you're coming from Davao City or from the southern parts of Bukidnon (like Malaybalay or Valencia):
1. Take a bus bound for Cagayan de Oro City and tell the conductor to drop you off in the town center of Manolo Fortich. From Manolo, take a habal-habal ride straight to Dahilayan Adventure Park. Fare could be around Php 200.00, more or less, depending on your negotiation with the driver. Prepare yourself for a rough and dusty ride.
