1st stop was a breathtaking view of the sea and Mt. Hibok hibok. We just couldn’t resist taking a photo on that site.
Then our next stop was the Sunken Cemetery. This Cemetery is said to have sunk after the July 13, 1949 volcanic eruption. Only the big cross can be seen from afar and the tombs can only be seen if you dive underwater.
We then stopped over the ruins of an old church which has also been destroyed from the volcanic eruption. I found the church construction to be very strong with its thick walls that seems like a fortress.
Then, we took a peek at the ‘newest’ soda pool. It was my first time to visit the place.We didn’t take a dip in the pool because we were already planning to take a bath in the cold spring.
So, that was our next stop. The Sto. Nino Cold spring. The place hasn’t changed much except there are more souvenier shops and restaurants now. The cold spring has a big ( but very deep) pool for adults and a kiddie pool. The water is really icy cold! Grrr…
After our cold bath, we then proceeded to the Philippine Volcanic Center where we had a much clearer view of Mt. Hibok hibok. The man in charge was very hospitable and kind.
And our last stop was Enigmata, an eco-lodge. I’m quite impressed with the artists creativity in making this tree house a beautiful place to live in. Every nook and corner has a special detail and artistic design. Their rates a quite affordable and the experience will be unforgettable.
