In the hills of Ga-as, Balamban, an action zone awaits those looking for an exhilarating zip-line experience. K33 A Green Adventure established the zip line to generate sustainable revenue and help reforest the denuded watershed areas in Cebu.
Another advocacy for K33 is to lure back the near-extinct Cebu flower-pecker (Dicaeum quadricolor), which is known locally as the managutô. When you ride the K33 zip line, you can contribute to the preservation of Cebu’s biodiversity. A percentage of what you pay for the ride goes directly to the reforestation fund.
At more than 300 meters (over a gully), this zip line is billed as the longest and fastest in the province. You could traverse the gully in 28 to 33 seconds, with a 220-meter return that takes 42 seconds. The rider’s safety is as important as enjoyment of the zip-line ride, so it strictly adheres to the industry standards for cable working load limits and other safety and redundancy details. Take note that zipping may be cancelled because of storms or other inclement weather.
Rates are affordable at Php150/ride (sit-down harness), and a Php180 superman ride can give daring riders a remarkable experience that allows them to commune with Mother Nature. You can also relax and unwind with your companions, at the view deck.
K33 is 33 kilometers east of the Balamban-bound lane of the Transcentral Highway. You can get there with a 45-minute ride from JY Square. This landmark is near the corner of Veterans Drive and Salinas Drive, where adventurous people can hire a motorcycle known as a habal-habal to take them to K33.
Those who plan to commute to Ga-as can take vans for hire from Ayala Center’s V-hire terminal. To return to Cebu City, you can wait along the road for V-hires heading back.
