Rise early to hike Cebu’s highest mountain for panoramic views. It’s pitch black this early and off the tourist trail. Only headlights reveal the track and you’re wondering when you’ll reach the foot of the mountain.
Your private guide leads the way, as he knows the idyllic place to perch for sunrise. At the summit, anticipation grows as you wait for the sun to appear through lingering clouds of fog. Jagged karst mountains jut up and down across the landscape, mostly capped in luscious greenery. The sun pops, and it feels otherworldly.
Savour the moment gazing into the distance, as this is something you long to remember forever.
