If your idea of fun is zooming through a cable to get a bird’s eye view of the verdant surroundings, then you’re going to enjoy the Zipline at Ugong Rock Adventures in Sabang. It’s in fact, one of the most popular side activities for those going on a tour to the Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR).
But as with any other extreme activity, the risk is there. To make sure your experience is fun and safe, here are the top tips that you should follow:
Wear the right clothing
There’s no special suit required for ziplining but modest clothing is recommended. You will be asked to wear a full-body harness that is to be wrapped around your legs and shoulders. It will be a good idea to wear a shirt or tank top with a round neckline or collar. This gives you protection from friction. The shoulder straps would be rubbing against your shoulders and neck. Pants are also ideal to wear so you won’t feel uncomfortable with the leg straps. Don’t forget to wear closed-toe footwear. Flip-flops are not advisable.
Follow instructions carefully
A well-trained guide will be there to assist you all the way with your ziplining experience. But you have to listen to everything that he says and follow each rule carefully. Remember, accidents happen to those who don’t follow the rules! Ugong Rock Adventures strives to maintain the highest safety standards for their guests, but of course, the guests have to do their part. If you have any question, don’t hesitate to ask. If you don’t feel comfortable about anything, let your guide know about it.
Make sure that you’re the right age, weight and fitness
Very young kids are not yet allowed. Guests should also not exceed the weight limit of 250 pounds to ensure safety of everyone. It’s also very important that you’re in top health to do the Zipline. You need to have your blood pressure checked and you need to be able to do light exercises before going on the Zipline.
