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

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

It's quite a walk up, but once you get there, you can climb the tower and view the whole island. On a clear day you can see many other islands as well. eg. Bohol, Mindanao, Cebu, Negros

the place is a nice cardio workout going up the slippery steps tho it is risk & scary to do. the view from the top awaits you, but aside from that, nothing much to reward your efforts climbing up. sometimes the path will fork so stay on the concrete road.
