Me enjoying the zipline in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato, Philippines

"For the record, I enjoyed my first free ride at my own risk as the first tourist, testing the newly installed zipline in Lake Sebu. Yes, I signed the waiver. It is noted that the ride was temporarily closed to public few months ago for maintenance and repairs. I was lucky enough to experience an adrenaline rush while riding the newly-opened zipline
, witnessing two equally beautiful waterfalls. The zipline in Lake Sebu is considered as the Southeast Asia's highest zipline with almost 600 feet above the ground; 740 & 420 meters long. Amazing, right?"
