When God created mankind He intends to make them happy so he created nature first before man. And this place is indeed an icon one cannot forget. A SCENERY worth every journey and penny. Entrance fee is fair enough but you will experience is more than enough.. #piaipipiay11travel2015ph

The local government did a good job and maintained the surroundings keeping everything clean and... More

They developed the place so well even the roads that was very very very rough-road way back then. Worthy to visit and I am proudly inviting everyone to visit the "Blue... More
