Northern Mindanao Escape: Wet and Wild in Cagayan De Oro River

Wet and Wild in Cagayan De Oro!
One thing that convinced us to visit Cagayan De Oro is to try White River Rafting. I have this river rafting on the back of my mind whenever I hear CDO. We had Kagay team to assist us with the trip.


The Cagayan De Oro River separates Bukidnon Province, Iligan City and Cagayan De Oro City. From CDO town proper, you need around 45-60mins ride to the jump off point. Only few kilometres from the long river stretch are fit for this adventure, but it will take you hours to finish. Basic will give you around 25 rapids up to class 5. You have an option to choose, Beginner, Advance and Extreme. They also mentioned rafting at night but I guess that’s for the daredevil.


They fetch us from our hotel all geared up, we just brought extra clothes. Be prepared to get wet and exhausted.


We didn't thought our lecturer will be our guide that day :)
As we arrived the jump off point, we had a quick briefing of our do’s and don’ts. Better to listen and follow the guidelines for your own safety, and if they know that your team are equipped with the extremes, they will bring more fun to your ride. And so we begin!

First rapid - easy!
And more rapids to come
Listening carefully - we are focus you know :p
A quick turn to get closer to the falls, fit to drink - yes!
And here we go again! 
Tired yet asking for more - look at Kuya he's enjoying too! 
Oh no! 5 forward paddle... 1...2...3
High five! 
And when the rapids calm down, we can go down for a while for a quick dip
And after the calm river, here we go again...
Feeling professionals... 
Heavy paddle needed, full force!
A view from afar...
Another dip, yes...
Some more twist...
And more...
Another high five! 
And last high five before we leave...
And so here we are in the finals...
Till we meet again our great rafters:) Thanks for the fun trip :) 
And that ends our extreme ride. Sorry for the picture overload. :) After the ride, we washed up and packed up. Hal and I visited their office to get our pictures first and we get to meet the others from Kagay team. 

Surely the trip was fun and full of adventure, we didn't fail to choose Kagay to be our partner in our extreme, exciting, pure adrenaline adventure. Definitely one thing that you surely do not want to miss when you visit CDO.

Parang nakakatakot naman ang rafting (esp yung night).
Can't help but think about the small rocks and boulders perhaps?
