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

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

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
