We made a "quick" stop at Lignon Hill Park. We hadn't done any research on it, so we had no preconceived notions.
When we got to the gate, the worker was very high pressure in trying to sell us their ATV rides. P1800/person was a bit too steep, even though Zac Efron himself had done the trip! The trip looks great, but wasn't in our budget.
Instead, we opted to just enjoy the hill. P20/person, with me paying P25 (because I am a foreigner...despite being a permanent resident).
The hill is a paved road the winds up to the top. We saw several vehicles that overheated during the drive up, so make sure your vehicle is serviceable and TURN OFF YOUR AIRCON! We walked up and it was a great workout.
On the way up, there are various stops you can make. The first we stopped at was some tunnels made by the Japanese. This was very interesting to see how intricate and cramped they were. Further up the hill we were able to climb up a section of wooden ladder. Was a good fitness challenge.
At the summit, there is food and souvenirs, and a great view of the Mayon Volcano. I recommend also visiting Cagsawa Ruins, but this view is different, as you are looking more "at" the volcano rather than "up" at the volcano. Great photo spot.
One of the main attractions here is the zip line. We didn't do it, but it looks great. We opted to do the cheaper (P150/person) suspension bridge, located at about the 75% mark up the hill. The bridge requires full fall gear, so go to the zip line hut and they will kit you out with helmet and fall harness. Then you hike down the hill to the entrance to the suspension bridge. For those who are afraid of heights, this is great challenge. The bridge is really narrow (about 8 inches wide) but has protective netting on the sides. A great thrill.
Overall, this is a nice 1-2 hour adventure located right in the Mayon area. It's right next door to the Albay Park and Wildlife area. Worth a trip. And if you have the cash, I think the ATV adventure would be great!
