Big-ot Falls: The Mini-canyoneering Experience in Hilongos, Leyte (With Travel Guide)

I never exactly thought that there exists such a beautiful spot near my home.

Big-ot Falls is located in Brgy. San Isidro, Hilongos, Leyte. It has become popular to the Hilongosnons earlier this year when the incumbent Mayor, Hon. Albert Villahermosa, visited the place. When the visit was shared online, Big-ot Falls has become the talk of the town.

Big-ot Falls is not yet popular to people outside of Hilongos. I am also thinking of keeping it away from the outside world to preserve it, but it is too difficult not to blog about its pristine beauty. It really was captivating. ❤

Looking Back: Make a Difference (MaD) Asia 2014 in Hong Kong

For the year 2014, I was able to become one of the representatives of the Philippines for Make a Difference (MaD) Asia 2014 in Hong Kong. Continue reading “Looking Back: Make a Difference (MaD) Asia 2014 in Hong Kong”

Negros Province Escapade: Dumaguete, Valencia, and Apo Island (With Itirenary and Travel Guide)

Valencia is blessed with so many natural spots. Casaroro Falls is just a manifestation of how blessed Valencia is.

The Forest Camp: Valencia’s Best Nature Resort

Take nothing, but pictures;
leave nothing, but footprints;
kill nothing but time.
-The Forest Camp

Valencia, a first class municipality of the newly-hailed Negros Province, is home to many wonders of nature. It can offer you pristine falls, rocky rivers, virgin forests, and relaxing hot springs. With that, during our Negros Trip, we listed Valencia as the first municipality to visit and we listed Valencia’s best nature park as our first stop.

Ten to fifteen minutes away from the Valencia town proper lies The Forest Camp Nature Park. True to its name, it is a unique and well-developed nature resort surrounded with trees, a river, rocks, bamboo rooms and function halls, natural pools, and many others.

Mt. Naupa: Another Friendly Peak at the South (With Travel Guide and Summary of Expenses)

Mt. Naupa has become popular to mountaineers, campers, and trekkers since last year. We got curious about it, that is why, when my friends invited me to have a camping trip to Mt. Naupa, I did not hesitate to come!

We decided to pack our bags and spend our September 24th and 25th at the top of the mountain. That’s a weekend, of course. We wanted to see how the sundown and sunup would look like from the top so we decided to start our trip at noon and rode a bus to Minglanilla, Cebu.

Bagumbayan

It is a place that I love my whole heart. I would have to say that I grew up here since I oftenly visit because my ancestry grew up here and my grandparents are still living here up to this day. Today, we are maintaining a permanent residence in this gracious barangay.

In some jokes, they call it “New Town”. For kids who still cannot speak clearly, they call it; “Umbayan”. It is my pleasure to introduce to you Brgy. Bagumbayan of Hilongos, Leyte.
