Camp Sabros

I'm sure most of you by now have heard of Camp Sabros...the place in Kapatagan, Digos City,Davao del Sur with the longest zipline in the Philippines. My classmates and I went there last March 2. It was a 2 hours drive from Davao City and upon reaching Kapatagan, we hiked for about 20 minutes uphill to the site because only 4x4 vehicles can go there. There is no entrance fee and they have a mess hall there where you can eat. We only paid P150 for the zip since we zipped by 2, you pay P300 for a solo ride.The zip line is 380 meters long and the moment I saw the people ziplining, i wanted to go home and snuggle comfortably in my bed. As i mentioned and confessed several times before...I am a coward and i'm proud of being one. I can't exactly recall my reasons for being there...and what exactly happened but before i knew it i was headed home and i only have the below pictures to attest that i was actually there. Okay that's exaggerating...when it was my turn in the zipline...i saw nothing because i closed my eyes the entire time hehehe even during the return trip via the cable car. Now i'm not so sure about having the powers of flying because its so damn scary to be up there!
How to get there if one is commuting(adding this in response to Mark's Q)
Ride a bus to Digos then get off at the Terminal
Ride a jeep for Kapatagan or rent a motorcyle
Get off the Kapatagan Checkpoint
Walk to Camp Sabros(20 minutes)

The whole gang at the Entrance

We had to wait below the zip station for the rain to stop before we can zip

Ready...zip...go!

The Cable Car back


We conquered this mound!
