This visit was certainly worth the enjoyable car ride up seeing all the views and sights on the way there. We preferred to go in daylight to catch the view but told it is very pretty at dusk/evening to see all the lights of the city. Took plenty of photos. Then had a snack and drink as a few snack...

Well worth the taxi ride. We travelled up just before sunset and saw spectacular views of Cebu City and the surrounding area. There is a small cafe and toilets there but only worth going for the views. Agree a rate with the taxi driver first or you will be ripped off.

Way back student days, this is one of the places me and my sisters love to visit. Though it's a challenge since we don't have our own vehicles during that time but this is really a place we frequent. This is like the Baguio of Cebu due to its cold weather most especially if it's raining. I bought my friends... More

It is a long drive to get to the top of the hills, however once there the scenic view is wonderful and surreal. Worth to visit with a certain entrance fee.

If you want to see the island of Cebu at around 2000 feet above sea level, this is the place to go to. We went here around sunset and the view is really awesome. You can see the whole island in a panoramic view. Going to the top is really a struggle specially for the vehicle because it really consumes... More

We had read reviews about how difficult it is to get to this place and back so we hired a regular taxi to take us to the place, wait for us for 5 min and bring us back to the city. It cost us 600 PHP per taxi to get there and back and 100 PHP PP as entrance fees... More

The Transportation is not too efficient, either you arrange a Cab or take a Motorbike taxi or lucky enough if you catch the local Jeepney going down Hill.. Overnight accommodation is available and some Restaurant to dined in..Good for Hikers too!!

The views from here are superb and really help the traveler to orient him or herself around the city as you can see the ocean, mountains and all of the landmarks down below. Although I have to say the telescope eats coins at quite a rate! There are some little restaurants up there and the seating is in a warren... More
