Mayana Peak, San Carlos: Day-hike from Bacolod (easy trail)

It’s been a while since I last blogged being busy with work and my studies. However, this recent trip we had is worth to share especially to those who love easy hiking and people who happen to be in Bacolod City and just like me, looking for a break by doing some adventure that could be done in 1 day.
Mayana Peak, located at Sitio Puno, is a perfect place for time-constrained travelers or even for some weary locals who would like to take a break from the buzzing city and find serenity with nature. Coming from Bacolod City (Capital, Negros Province), it is approximately two hours by bus via
Don Salvador 


Getting there:



What's there in Negros Island: Don Salvador Benedicto

Rice terraces, rich forest, marvelous view of mountains, and the fresh scent of pine are some of the reasons why this quaint town of Don Salvador Benedicto was dubbed "Little Baguio" of Negros. The Eco-tourism highway of Negros Occidental successfully played its part in revealing the beauty of nature that will surely feed your wanderlust while on the road. Should you be in a group, try renting a car/van so you'll have the luxury of stopping at picturesque places along your way. Moreover, if you think that chocolate hills are only found in bohol then think again, because you can also find them here on your way further to San Carlos City.
Don Salvador Benedicto is an hour away from Bacolod City heading toward the center of Negros, facing the north side of Mt. Kanlaon. This scenic town is a perfect weekend getaway to unwind from the hectic city life. Also, If you're visiting Bacolod for a couple of days and would like to spice up your journey with some nature escapade, a day-tour at Don Salvador Benedicto is very feasible.

Planning to have a weekend adventure? Consider CDO-Camiguin for your itinerary!
Cagayan de Oro (CDO) is one of the major cities in northern mindanao. Highly urbanized and strategically located near Bukidnon and Camiguin. 
Camiguin on the hand, is a Island of paradise, born of fire as they say, but technically because the island is made up of seven volcanoes! Majestic as it may seem but History had witness both beauty and horror of what it is to be an Island composed of these mighty volcanoes.
Coming from manila, you'll have an hour and a half flight directly to CDO. The airport is a bit far from the city (1 hour) but don't worry if you haven't made some carpool arrangements, you can ride a tourist-van outside the airport to bring you to the city. One-way fare will cost you around 200 PHP per pax.
