Be adventurous and try Loboc’s Zipline
Tried their zipline which crosses a distance around 600 meters long from one place to another and 120 meters high over the Loboc river.  It made my heart beat hasty.  After a while, I really enjoyed it and I felt that I was truly flying.  I've seen how beautiful Loboc River was.

Cross the Sipatan Hanging Bridge
