Subic: Tree Top Adventure

"A park where the beauty of an unspoiled forest presents itself as a perfect backdrop for your holiday activity." Get high on nature at Subic's Tree Top Adventure and experience all the adventure activities that they have on offer!

I wanted to experience something different for the weekend and decided to invite some friends to travel all the way to Subic, Olongapo which is a 4-hr drive from Manila. My bag loaded with multi-lens lomo cams to capture every action! Upon arrival at the JEST Camp, I had a hard time choosing which adventure package to take as we have only half of the day to explore the place. (Note to myself: Next visit, reserve one whole day!)

Being the adventurous type, I opted to try Package E which includes Tree Top Adventure, Ultimate Adventure, Canopy Walk and my favorite, Tree Drop Adventure! There will be a briefing for every ride for safety precautionary measures and I noticed all the staff would really go an extra mile to help every guest put their harness and helmets. They are very friendly and approachable too!

In the Treetop Adventure, you would have to sit and follow a trail suspended among the rain forest. The Ultimate Adventure-Superman ride, was another favorite of mine, as I got to lie down like the superhero and be pushed and pulled in mid-air. Zip along a zip line above the trees with my face down. Scary but really fun!

You can never say you have been here if you won’t try the Tree Drop. I tried the conventional spider-style (mission impossible pose of Tom Cruise as they say) where I was rappelled down in a 60-foot tree that took only seconds to reach the ground.

What they offer is more than just the “peak” of excitement. If the views do not take your breath away then maybe the Tree Drop will. Check out their site and quench your thirst for that adrenaline rush!
