MANILA, Philippines - Baguio's year-round chilly weather has helped lure tourists to the city, especially during the summer season.

Now, adventure-seekers have another reason to visit the City of Pines as Baguio recently launched its own zip line, surrounded by the magnificent view of mountains and growth forests.

Located at Camp John Hay, the Baguio Treetop Adventure features a Canopy Ride, where a person is seated on a steel swing and is taken from one tower to another.

The Silver Surfer, on the other hand, lets a person glide from tower to tower by standing on a pole and holding onto a bar.

There's also the Funicular Ride, where one gets to sit inside a cable car that takes him or her up and down a steep incline.

The Free Fall, meanwhile, lets a person be dropped from the skywalk to a very steep cliff.

Just like in Subic and Quezon City, the Treetop Adventure in Baguio also features the Superman Ride, where one gets to soar above the pine trees and enjoy the mountain view by lying horizontally on 2 safety bars.

Meanwhile, Baguio is set to have a Skywalk, which allows tourists to walk along a glass floor.
