The Philippines is blessed with a multitude of natural bounties and resources. In fact, one of the things most notable about the country is the sheer number of beautiful beaches we have.

Beautiful mountains abound!

However, more often than not, the beaches, in spite of their charm, overshadow the other naturally beautiful places the country has to offer, like the many waterfalls, mountains, valleys, and everything else that the Philippines houses within its borders. One stark example is a mountain range in Dalaguete, Cebu, near the southern part of the province. What makes this mountain range truly special is the fact that you can actually scale all of its five peaks within a day. It’s a small mountain compared to other Philippine mountains, and is a favorite among both local and foreign mountaineers, affectionately referred to as the “5-in-1 Dalaguete Trek.”
