Ate Weng Sicat, the local DOT Officer,Â showed this one of a kind zipline-like ride in Hungduan.
It is operated by an engine that push and pulls the ride and could carry a weight of 200kg from one mountain side to the other.
Excitedly, I asked Ate Weng if I could ride, then I got this look telling me that I could not ride the tramline. She then explained that the tramline is NOT FOR PEOPLE TO RIDE, but to help the locals to transport palay and other produce from one mountain to the other. Before, the agricultural produce were being carried for more than a kilometer to get to the road to be loaded in trucks/jeepneys.
This is an ingenious project of the Department of Agriculture to help the people of Hungduan. It is a bit distracting when you’re in the viewpoint of the Hungduan/Hapao Rice Terraces.
I do hope that the farmers do not have to pay a large amount of money when they use it.
GOOD JOB ON THE AGRICULTURAL TRAMLINES! 🙂
