No, We Will Not Slide... We Will Jump Off a 30-ft Waterfall!

Mapawa River Trek Waterfall Challenge (4 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 - 4-14 River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-113

This is my favorite waterfall challenge where you have to jump a 30-ft waterfall.

 (Fortunately, we had two cameras capturing this exciting jump.)

Meg was the first one to jump. She just did it without any hesitation.

River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-21
This is where we waited for our turn and asked ourselves, "To Jump or Not to Jump?!?"

River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-31
Dedet was actually afraid and she needed one of the guides to jump with her.

River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-36
1...  2... 3...... JUMP!

River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-83
It is better to jump first because the longer you wait, the more that you'll be afraid to jump.

You can also decide to fly...

River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-60
To Jump or Not to Jump?  She backed out...

As for me, I did the Michael Jackson jump where you pinch your nose and protect your private parts from the impact (ang pangit lang sa pictures...)

River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-108
Tito Mora was the last to jump; the rest already decided to give up and walk around the waterfall...

River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-111
Tito almost gave up, but at the last moment, he took the plunge!

River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-61
Finally, as a reward, we had a binalot lunch of adobo, rice and egg...

River Trek Waterfall Challenge - 4-117
A well-deserved rest before the final waterfall challenge. (To be continued...)
