• Ilocos Sur Adventure Zone Opening


    Residents of Ilocos Sur including local and foreign tourists can now enjoy different extreme sports following the opening of the Ilocos Sur Adventure Zone in Banaoang, between the towns of Bantay and Santa. The adventure zone will showcase sports activities such as rock climbing and rappelling at the Rocky Mountains in the place, kayaking and zorb ball at the Abra River and zipline that will go across the river. Prior to this, the Provincial Government of Ilocos Sur trained several individuals that will serve as personnel of the adventure zone to ensure quality service and security of the tourists who will visit the place. In line with this, Traverse Ilocos Sur Adventure Challenge: Discover the Wonders of Ilocos Sur participated by 15 celebrities including Emilio Garcia, Tyrone Perez ken Sam Pinto was staged here. The race started at the famous Vigan Heritage Village all the way to empanadahan, Pagburnayan, Baluarte Zoo, Bantay Bell Tower, and ended to Banaoang where they swim and tried kayaking as they signalled the formal opening of the Ilocos Sur Adventure Zone. Gov. Chavit Singson in an exclusive interview said they developed the adventure zone to become an additional spot for stopover of tourists as they usually ask for other activities they can pull off during their stay in the province. “Aside from alluring tourists to flock in our province, this will be an additional source of revenue as we collect fees for using the facilities” explained Singson. Vice Gov. DV Savellano announced that the adventure zone is now open every day for those who want to try the amenities. “I myself can say that this Ilocos Sur Adventure Zone is different from those in other provinces specially the zipline not atop trees but will pass through the clean waters of Abra River” Savellano said.
