My girlfriend and I decided to walk together with a group of.locals which organized a walk to the mountain to the opening of the Faith Healing festival. We walked 10 km from the tennis court to the top and it was a great experience to be surrounded by nature and at every stop we had coconut water and we would... More

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

After San Antonio village, before Mt.Bandila- An, there is a healer that healed my really bad wound at my leg.

She has been a healer since age of 13. And... More

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

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.
