Paragliding with Sierra Del Oro

Cagayan de Oro has been my home for almost nine months already. I can't believe how time flies! Cagayan de Oro has so much to offer to travelers and tourist alike when it comes to adventure. The newest there is would be the Paragliding in Sierra del Oro. Also, probably the most thrilling activity in Cagayan de Oro one can sign up to. Being a Kagay-anon by heart, I wouldn't miss this for the world. 

Sierra del Oro is a 68 hectare property owned by a man who came from humble beginnings and is now one of Cagayan de Oro's business tycoon, Mr. Peter Unabia. This property is settled amidst the Indahag Hills in Cagayan de Oro City,  some 30KM away from Cagayan de Oro City Proper. Within the property, there's a restaurant and a Coffee shop. Hugo Skye Lounge and Sierr-a-Cup, respectively (Which I'll be blogging about soon). Sierra del Oro is a newly opened adventure park and one of the only five Paragliding site where this sport is being practiced in the Philippines making it also the only paragliding site in Mindanao, as of this writing. Sarangani Paragliding site has been closed due to some technical glitch but will be back in operation soon. 

I have always been a fan of any daring adventure. Remember when I jump off a 30- metre waterfalls in Tanay, Rizal? When I knew about this Paragliding in Cagayan de Oro, I knew I'd want to give it a try. Paragliding is a competitive adventure sport of flying Paraglider (consists simply of a harness suspended under a fabric wing.) 

The trained Paraglider Pilot will conduct a 5-10 minute briefing before you are in the air for the first time. With tandem Paragliding, no experience will be needed but you have to listen to what your pilot says and you just have to sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience of flying. Your pilot will do all the hard work!

Mr. Randell Raymundo was my Paraglider Pilot and I felt so secure as him being my Pilot. After all, he is the Master Para-glider of the Philippines. After the short briefing, my pilot called me and told me to get ready. The wind felt and looked really nice that day. My pilot commanded me to run so I obliged and we were up in the sky in a matter of seconds. For the record, I wasn't scared. NEVER. AT ALL. And for someone who is afraid of falling; It is amazing how I never felt the fear. I finally was able to fly and it is the best feeling. "So this is how it feels like to be free. Free like a bird. ' I joked.

I encourage you guys to try it at least once in your life. The thrill of being hundreds of feet above the ground is extra exhilarating. This activity is as close as to flying as it gets.  It was an amazing experience and definitely one for the books. If given an opportunity, I'd do it again and again! Train to be a Paraglider Pilot even!

Check back for my video! I'll be releasing it soon.
