Can You Slide Down this 20-ft Natural Waterfall Slide?

Mapawa River Trek Waterfall Challenge (1 of 5 Series)

[Mapawa River Trek is one of the awesome adventures that await you in Cagayan de Oro, where you follow the natural path of the Mapawa River through Five Waterfall Challenges. Can you conquer your fear and survive the Mapawa River Trek?!]

River Trek Waterfall Challenge 1-11
To reach the first waterfall challenge -- a 20-ft natural waterfall slide in Mapawa River -- you have to bear a 30-min tractor ride inside the Mapawa Nature Park and hike for another 45 minutes.



River Trek Waterfall Challenge 1-26
Slippers are preferably removed. Don't wear any jewelry either during the Mapawa River Trek!

River Trek Waterfall Challenge 1-13 
What to do? Clasp your hands at the back of your head and lean forward to avoid hitting your head when you slide down the waterfall.

River Trek Waterfall Challenge 1-20
You can opt to pinch your nose to avoid the sudden rush of water inside it when you hit the water.

River Trek Waterfall Challenge 1-39
The kids can choose to slide down with one of the guides.

River Trek Waterfall Challenge 1-3
You have to straighten your legs; otherwise, you might fall on your butt (like me) -- which would be very painful for men...

River Trek Waterfall Challenge 1-44
We survived the first waterfall!

River Trek Waterfall Challenge 2-1

On to the next challenge... (to be continued...)
