The activities that you can do in the mountain resort include monkey bridge walking and zip splash. It’s just like the typical zipline except that they drop you on a pool. So you really need to know how to swim in order to zip splash. And yeah, that’s the reason why I haven’t tried it.
They also have another amneties where you can play billiard or sing videoke songs.
They have a restaurant and they can also serve breakfasts. If you want to bring your own food, there’s a corkage fee of 35 pesos per head. You are also allowed to grill there which is really more fun.
