Zip Line at Pilar Mt. Samat, Bataan
Whenever I am behind the wheel I get the urge to stop at everything! Oh look, a basket! A person selling food and I have no idea what it is, lets pull over! Well, the urge paid off. On our way to Las Casas I saw a massive cross and signs for Mt. Samat. Not doing much research prior I had no idea it was the historical site for the Bataan Death March. I was just so intrigued by the massive cross we took a detour and drove up Mt. Samat and I am so glad we did. As we drove up the main road for Mt. Samat we saw a sign for the longest zip line in Central Luzon. I really had no idea how great it would be. The boys' initial excitement after seeing the sign was enough to pull over. The excitement after the ride was very rewarding. The process was relatively easy but with a large fun payoff.
You can't miss the sign. Once you enter the road there is a shed with parking and someone waiting for you. Once you sign your life away and pay, you ride a truck to the base of the zip line.
After you arrive at the tree house you wait about 10 minutes for a private jeepney to pick you up and return you to your car. It was such a beautiful drive. I had no idea the distance we covered by zip lining through the valley.
Things To Know:
- About ten minutes after you turn on the road to go up Mt. Samat there is a sign for Mt. Samat Zipline.
- We had to wait for a group of 15 individuals before us and it took about 30-40 minutes.
- You can ride individually or tandem.
- If you want a picnic Dunsulan Park or tree hopping, perhaps you could park your car at the waterfall and then take the private jeepney back to the summit and ride back down.
- I definitely recommend this as a stop on the way home from Las Casas.
