About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Trek to Mount Luho View Point , Boracay Island

    Usually out of the radar screen of most tourists in Boracay, the island's highest peak, Mt. Luho, offers adventurers to an easy to moderate trek/climb and offer a panoramic view of the island. A view deck made of bamboo is available at the peak for an unobstructed view.

    the Mt. Luho sign at the entrance with concrete steps that leads to the summit

    signs also in Korean signifying presence of Koreans on Boracay Island

    An entrance fee of P50 is required for all visitors. The park also has a mini-zoo where you can find an eagle, bayawak (monitor lizard), several pythons, birds, alamid/musang (civet or wild cat) and a monkey who loves to look at himself on a mirror.

    not the mighty Philippine eagle here but pitifully caged. should belong in the wild

    a hard to photograph monkey afflicted with narcissim, spent much of his time looking at himself on a mirror he's holding

    When Tutubi and his friends visited the place, they were the only locals. Most visitors were Koreans and Americans who came on board ATVs (all terrain vehicles).

    How to get to Mt. Luho View Point:

    Hard yet healthy way: trek from white beach, go to the main road towards Pacific Patio (formerly Pink Patio) and pass by bulabog beach access road, turn left at the end then just follow the road to the summit.

    Usual way: rent a tricycle to take you there. Cost is around P150 to P250 per hour (depends on your negotiating skills. higher if you're a foreigner)

    Great way: for the moneyed few, rent an ATV or bug car then drive on the dusty road up the mountains. ATV rental shops are available in near the entrance of Fairways & Bluewater Resort Golf & Country Club.

    First time I've heard of a monkey, or any creature for that matter, afflicted with narcissism. I thought that only humans can be narcissists. :)

    I'm blogging at this link for the mean time.
