My first and might be the last Canyoneering in Alegria with colleagues

How’s your canyoneering experience? Let me recap my first Canyoneering in 2015.

This is actually where Joe gathered everyone from the team so that we can experience such activity together with our client and one of our bosses. A week prior to this, we were in our training for the new LOB of the project and we [Naphy] were able to gather 2 dozens from the team to experience the activity. Saturday came, and everyone was pretty excited. In 2015, the canyoneering price was still at P850 and the trail is from Alegria to Kawasan Falls– this before all the political issues budded.

We rented 2 vans for P3000/way = P12000. We took off from IT Park at 6AM as Alegria is still 3-4 hours away from the metro. We had our breakfast in Carcar and we also brought our lunch from there. We actually arrived in Alegria at 10:30AM.

We then registered 24 people from our team and paid our van rentals, suited ourselves- got our helmets, shoes, and lifejackets up!

Mackie, our guide who’s been discussing the dos and don’ts. Everyone should be very cautious.Β This is where we thought that this is a ‘No Turning Back’ activity.

Prepping up and lining up for our first jump.

With all those jumps, all we needed is to rest. A quick stop before jumping again.

And this for our final jump– and our favorite part of this canyoneering.

And this is right, just after all the jumps that we had. It was scary. My feet were shaking all through-out the activity. It’s a mixed feeling of being hungry and the feeling of your need to jump, so that you will not let the others wait. I didn’t worry about not knowing how to swim, because these lifejackets are designer for non-swimmers.

Final groupfie before our Lechon Lunch!

We arrived at Kawasan Falls at 3PM and we started to feast since everyone seemed to be very hungry. Though we had a short barbecue stop at the last jump area, we were still excited with the lechon from Carcar and of course to dip ourselves to this Gatorade-like waterfalls.

The whole adventure took almost 5 hours for us to finish the whole river trail. Some of us just wore sandals and the other rented shoes from the jump-off. We brought trail foods and half-liter water and or a bottle of Gatorade.

P.s. If this will be your first time for Canyoneering just make sure that you are ready and committed to jumping! πŸ™‚ You may bring your water and foods, gadgets and put it on your waterproof bags. ALWAYS KEEP YOUR TRASH WITH YOU!
