Mountain top (which is the name that my husband gave to this place) is a quite place perfect for those who want peace and quite without the noise of the busy streets of the city, fresh air and a vast view of green trees, mountains, a long river, the blue sea and even lightning as well.

The road going to this place is really a challenge to those who are used to driving around a normal road. This one is located uphill, there is a part of the road going there that is kind of bumpy but the local government had fixed some of those bumpy roads still there are some parts that have not been fixed yet.


But when you reach on top you can see the beauty that nature brings. It's not that abandoned or uncivilized place, there are some people living here, a subdivision but people on this place are quite respectful and they are not noisy or offbeat compared to the type of people that will be seen around in the city. Friendly people who do give repect with each other and also to nature.

Money Wise

The cost of going here from the city center in Cebu, probably it can cost about $10 taxi fare this is round trip already. Just bring along food from Mcdonalds worth $10 sof for $20, you will have a date with yourself or with your loved one perfectly right.


A peaceful and serene beauty that is perfect for those lovers out there who seek solitude, want to have a romantic dinner right on the grass or a picnic perhaps or just plainly watching the lightning across the sky. It does not cost that much and the mountain is all yours with no other people who can disturb you along.

Cebu City History

When American supremacy ruled in 1901, Cebu and the rest of the country took the plunge for freedom. One cherished event in Cebuano’s past was when it was bestowed with its charter on February 24 1937 as per Commonwealth Act 58 authored by late Senator Vicente Rama. It was in then that the Interior Secretary, Elpidio Quirino picked the mayor and the board members of Cebu. Because of its rising populace and smart location on the map, it was picked by the Japanese forces to be its headquarters upon their arrival on April 10 1942. Years later Cebu finally beamed for being freed by the Americans in March 1945. Independence was in full circle in... Read more »
