We got lost on our way here! We weren't even sure where we are since I don't have 3G signal for my phone's maps. We asked people along the way where the park is and they say just go straight and follow the road. We did find a decrepit sign that with the park name but didn't find any entrances.... More

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
