First be aware that the road up the mountain takes a little longer to navigate than one might think - and a van will handle it better than a moto-tricycle. We did not go hiking in the forests of Bandilaan, but took the path up to the look-out tower. Unfortunately, the stairs have rotted away and it is unsafe/dangerous to... More

Didn't hike along the mountains, just went up to the tower and took some pictures. There were quite a bit of wear and tear along the steps so please be careful when climbing up or down. And of course you should take some images with the 3 crosses at the ground level

The roads that lead to the place are already asphalted which makes it accessible by four-wheeled vehicles that have good traction. It is best to drive SUVs or ATVs because inclines can be more than 15 degrees (I believe) at some points. Parking can be a problem though. I didn't see any parking areas and spots where you can park... More

It was ok, well marked trail with 14 stops depicting Christ's life. Have a fire watch type of tower at the top for a view.

I enjoy walking among trees and because of that really enjoyed the trek up Mt. Bandilaan. We were by ourselves when we went for a climb and it was late in the afternoon. It was quiet and it felt like I was in communion with mother nature. The cross at the top was beautiful in a simple way.

We were Here in low season, and the place was completely desserted. Moreover it was dirty. Maybe this place is more lively in The high season, but i find it difficult to imagine. You Can picknick here, but there more beautiful places. No doubt About it

Great if you can rent a scooter and do the island. The people were very friendly that I met. Check out these pictures at the link below: http://womentravellingalone.blogspot.com/2009/09/siquijor-philippines_04.html
