Mt. Banahaw
Mount Banahaw is one of the prides of Quezon; it is well-known as the holy mountain. This gigantic mountain is preserved by the local government, most of the time it is close to the public. During our tree planting activity, I noticed that Banahaw has a great rain-forest; its terrain is composed of grass, shrubs, flowering plants, and trees. The air is fresher than the other mountains and has cool ambiance. READ: MOUNT BANAHAW

Mt. Cristobal
Mount Cristobal is beside Mount Banahaw but they are contrary to each other; it is know as the devil's mountain. There are times that Cristobal is also close to the public to let the disturbed plants on the trail grow by themselves. This mountain also has a cool atmosphere, refreshing breeze, the terrain has a combination of grass, shrubs and trees. Of course, don't forget the creepy stories at the campsite.

In Nilandingan Cove, Cagbalete Island, we celebrated our 9th anniversary. Though, it's a 4-5 hours land travel from Manila, we chose Nilandingan Cove because we thought that it has a big picture of beauty at its finest. From afar, we were greeted by the long stretch of fine white sand shoreline with the greens on the side. Upon arrival, we discovered that Nilandingan Cove is not just about the shoreline, it also has crystal clear and cool waters, lovely cottages, and relaxing ambiance. READ: NILANDINGAN COVE
