Another extreme eco-adventure destination in Mindanao area particularly located in Brgy Dicklum, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon that offers different extreme activities.
Kampo Juan opened in the public last April 15, 2011 and named after the owner of the place – Dr. Juan Acosta. The agriculturist-farmer and scientist, who is expert in horticulture and plant breeding, contributed a lot in the field of Philippine agriculture. The place offers not just for adventure/thrilling seekers but it was built to appreciate its natural beauty that is well-preserved by the owner of the camp.
Things to do in Kampo Juan:
Anicycling – The first and popular attraction in the Philippines, a sky biking version of Kampo Juan with a bicycle hanging in a 100 feet high from the cable and around 600 feet wide to travel across the ravine.
honestly, riding their anicycle was horrible but I can still manage to smile. hahaha
To operate the bicycle, you need to strike the pedal to move forward and never move it backward just continue to move pedal until you reach the end point. Don’t bother if you think that you will drop on the ravine as the bicycles are already programmed in the cable to maintain its balance.
They provided also a harness as part of their safety gears. This is good for 1 to 3 persons and open for beginners as well.
Zipline – One of the longest zipline rides in asia, considering that they have these two zips having 180 feet in height and 520 feet for the length.
You will surely enjoy the breath-taking views upon riding their ziplines. They got this training type of a zipline and perfect for the whole family.
Hanging Bridge – The spectacular 110 meters walkway. With a few minutes of walking to cross the bridge, you would definitely enjoy the beautiful and natural sceneries.
Rappelling – another additions in kampo juan with 55 meters high and 90 degrees of the angle that offers thrill adventure for climbers wannabe. It doesn’t require experience because you will be accompanied by their professional and well-trained guides to make sure that you feel more secure and comfortable.
Don’t visit Kampo Juan:
1. If you have a fear of heights and hate stomach dropping feeling: taking those rides might make you feel a bit fainted especially when the hanging bridge starts to swing and when you start riding the anicycle makes you overthink on any certain possibilities to fall.
2. If you hate trekking the whole camp: The whole vicinity doesn’t oblige you to walk around the place. It only requires you to walk to reach the other rides like zipline and hanging bridge especially when you avail all-rides package that costs 600.00 pesos. But if you do trekking, you would definitely appreciate the area that offers a feast of well-preserved nature. Walking around the area is fat burning exercise as well.
3. If you expect too much from the place: Kampo Juan doesn’t have complete amenities. They only have two small swimming pools, cool and relaxing rooms for accommodations. They don’t have café or restaurants but they can still serve foods through booking basis. You should book your foods 3 days before the tour.
If you’re one of the bravest adrenaline junkies like me who craves for different thrilling and unique adventure experiences, I’m sure you would love and enjoy visiting Kampo Juan.
