I expected this tree to have witch doctors and more people around, sadly none of that was present.
On the whole, do not expect much. And you will not miss out on anything if you do not come here (considering the long distance uphill)
How to reach?
Take a trike - the tree is a good 30-45 minutes uphill drive from Coco grove resort.
The route is scenic as it passes rice fields, rice terraces and coconut plantations.
More about the Balete tree
The tree is like any balete tree, but very old (150 years +), big and has a water body below which contains fish. A popular activity is for visitors to dropping berries into the water, which the fish rush for.
You can walk around the tree, and even hang by it's supporting roots (they are very strong! Good for what we call here int eh Philippines "wacky shots" - photographs!)
