Chocolate Hills–Mantalongon Highlands

There is an alternate inclination you get when you contact and experience for yourself all the great places in the Philippines that you have just found in print and on TV. When I was finding out about my nation's superb wealth in school, I really wanted to acknowledge and feel honored to live in the Philippines and for being a nearby in this nation. 

Having been brought up in Cebu, there is nothing more tiring than living in The Queen City of the South without completely acknowledging what influenced Cebu to merit that name. 

I have been to Bohol yet I never got the chance to perceive what it is well known for– the Chocolate Hills. Chocolate Hills are simply standard slopes that turn chocolate darker in shading amid the dry season. Increase that by a thousand additional slopes and that is the thing that you will expect in Bohol. Intriguing, would it say it isn't? 

They are the island's principle fascination beside the tarsiers however think about what, Bohol's slopes aren't one of a kind by any stretch of the imagination. 

Did you know? You don't have to make a trip to Bohol to see the Chocolate Hills since Cebu has its own one of a kind rendition of the well known vacation spot. Likely not actually the equivalent but rather fundamentally the same as. 

In the event that you think you've seen everything, you haven't been to Dalaguete. Dalaguete holds the most wonderful perspective of the good countries from the pinnacles. 

To have the capacity to see this view, you should trek up the mountains. There are various trails and approaches to get to the best. One is by moving up Casino/Lugsangan Peak and the other is by trekking Osmena Peak. 

The slopes do troupe Bohol's Chocolate Hills however truly, they look increasingly like shelled nut kisses, what do you think? 

When you get to the enlistment territory, you will be relegated a manual for take you to the pinnacle. The free is 150 yet it relies upon what number of individuals there are in a gathering. There presumably is no standard rate yet since the pinnacle is new to Cebu's learning. 

There is no extra charge. You will just need to pay for the guide. Getting one is prescribed in light of the fact that not exclusively will it enable you to climb more secure, it will help the nearby network whose occupation is lies on the travel industry. 

The trip is simple enough yet the trail is rough– rough and elusive so wearing the best possible footwear is an absolute necessity. Likewise, remember that another methods for living of the general population in Dalaguete is delivering vegetation so please abstain from venturing on the products. 

When you achieve the best, the slopes will invite you like this.

How to get to Casino Peak

From Cebu City, go to Carbon Public Market and look for a bus that will go directly to Mantalongon, Dalaguete. Once you are already in Dalaguete, tell the driver to drop you off at the town proper near 7/11. The bus ride is about 2.5-3 hours of travel time and will have you spend more or less 120 pesos only.

Another way is by hailing a bus from Cebu South Terminal. Hop on a bus going to Oslob/Bato and tell the driver that you are getting off at Dalaguete.

From 7/11, look for a habal-habal that will bring you to the foot of Casino Peak. Remember to ask for the rate because it ranges from 50 pesos to 300 pesos. Pick a good deal and don’t hesitate to haggle unless they already have a standard rate.

I think the same view from the Casino Peak is found from the top of Osmeña Peak since the Mantalongon Highlands is in between the two peaks, so it makes sense. You can, however, use O’Peak, the highest point of Cebu, to view the beautiful rock formations. By the way, the Casino Peak is only an hour (or less) away from Osmeña Peak.

How to get to Osmeña Peak

From the South Bus Terminal, hail a bus going to Bato/Oslob because it will pass by Dalaguete. Tell the driver or the assistant that you are heading to Dalaguete and then get off at the Mantalongan-Dalaguete juntion. Technically, the Osmeña Peak is located in Badian, however, going to Dalaguete to access the peak is a lot easier.

Sooner or later, this attraction will gain more visitors and will get crowded so if you can spare a few hours, visit Dalaguete to experience our very own version of Bohol’s Chocolate Hills first hand.
