Top reasons for visiting Pugad Adventure Park
- The activities
What is an adventure park without all the adrenaline-pumping activities? Pugad Adventure Park has some of the most sought-after attractions in La Union. For instance, it features the very first 450-meter zipline in Elyu, overlooking the entire park once you are up there. Actually, there are three ziplines: Zipline 1 (400 meters) – the highest and longest; Zipline 2 (250 meters) – the faster one; and Zipline 3 (250 meters) – the lowest. You will go from one mountain to another.
Pugad Adventure Park is actually divided into three sections. Hanging bridges separate them. There are cottages and swimming pools that accommodate even big groups of guests. The pools are located in the middle section of the park.
The main activities, including the mini zoo and botanical garden, are in the third section. Aside from ziplining, you may also do wall climbing and rappelling. In addition, the management offers various packages with varying combinations of activities at more affordable rates.
You can rent out the entire place for teambuilding purposes as well. There are areas where games like paintball can be played. If your group wants an ATV ride, Pugad Adventure Park also offers such.
- The nature
Pugad Adventure Park is a nature-themed park, taking the actual topography of the place. Thus, it perfectly aligns with what the tourists want for a destination, someplace far off but where they can enjoy various activities. Here, you will genuinely commune with nature. This is probably why the park is always full, not just on weekends and holidays, but even weekdays.
- The climate
Pugo, La Union is 1 hour away from Baguio City, which explains the cold climate. This is true throughout the year, even when the sun shines terribly unless there is a typhoon. Not to mention the adventure park itself is surrounded by lush forests, especially fully-grown pine trees. Furthermore, Pugo is located somewhere relatively remote — far away from the city center. Therefore, it is much closer to nature than concrete structures.

Staff will welcome you as soon as you enter Pugad Adventure Park. There are also roving personnel to check the safety and security of the place. With one thing off your mind, you will genuinely enjoy everything the adventure park offers.
