The grin marking my face as I have seen the red marked on my calendar, which means another long weekend for an extreme adventure. Yes, the Philippines celebrates the 119th anniversary of its independence last June 12, 2017. My friends and I decided to explore the Province of Biliran and climb the highest Mountain in Biliran. We likewise had a side trip to the cloistered Lake in Ormoc City, which is located in the Province of Leyte.

To make sure that our adventure rhyme to the day the Independence day celebrated in the Philippines. We decided to make a group of adventure seekers and make a complete list of 12 adventurous people. Yes, you heard it really right, It is a group of 12 people. As the Independence day in the Philippines is celebrated every June 12 regardless of the year. It was actually planned 2 months before the actual adventure and we were so excited, especially me as this adventure will mark my first Major Climb.

So, this blog post is about Biliran and Ormoc City, which includes; travel guide, itinerary, budget and travel tips. Moreover, this also includes how to get to Biliran and Ormoc City from Cebu City and Tacloban.

The planned was to climb the highest Mountain in Biliran, which is the Mt. Tres Marias, and explore the innate beauty of Sambawan Island. And a side trip to the cloistered beauty of Lake Danao in Ormoc. It is actually a Summit to the Sea and to lake, kind of adventure. The whole adventure owned a different variety of nature trip, which makes it really exciting for all of us.

Sending my inner thoughts and peacefully bridging it to my untypical reaction has given me excitement the minute I read the itinerary that was given to me 2 days prior to our trek to Mt. Tres Marias, which happens to be my first major ascent. I never guessed that we could drop by at the stunning beauty of Ulan-Ulan falls. During my first visit in Biliran, I was supposed to check this waterfall, but due to time constraints, I wasn’t able to see it. Truly, a perfect time has come to collide with my long lost desire to flirt with the innate beauty of Ulan-Ulan falls.

Enjoying the cold and fine cloudy water droplets of Ulan-Ulan Falls while gazing to its natural beauty.

From the drop off area where we get to register for our trek going to Mt. Tres Marias. I can’t conceal my happiness and excitement as it is limpidly shown on my face without bothering to ask. Apart from being excited to reach the summit of Mt. Tres Marias, I can’t wait to see the astonishing waterfalls along the way.

Ulan-Ulan Falls is derived from the Visayan dialect which means “rain“. The sturdy force of the falling waters over the wall shape rocks which creates a cold mist will surely give you a natural touch. Ulan-Ulan falls is peacefully hiding in the lush scenery green forest of Sampao, Almeria, Biliran. Getting to this waterfall from the jump off area will take you around 30 minutes of smooth trek and provides you a beautiful scenery that would surely mollify you. The stream of water that flows in the mountain of Almeria is somehow creates and hides a mass of amazing waterfalls and an awesome spot for Canyoning and river trekking. No wonder that Biliran is a home for a great adventure which will surely unlock your wanderlust soul.

A quick douse in a cold natural pool of Recoletos Falls before going up to Mt. Tres Marias

From where my feet stood, I have watched the partial view of Ulan-Ulan falls that seemed to be so shy cause of the green leaves that covers it from afar. I put my backpack down, and ran straight to the Falls and gazing at its innate beauty is what my natural reaction dictates. Truly, the name itself speaks, the cooling mist that peacefully arriving on my surface has rendered me a refreshing feeling. It brought back my colorful childhood memories, where I used to dance and play while the rain pours. I can’t seem to stop gazing at its beauty from its slender brink where the water started to go down and how it was naturally becoming wide before reaching the catching basin. The presence of green leaves where some of the water fell is what gets it like a painted picture hanging on the same wall shape rocks. It was simply beautiful and naturally captivating.

Truly, right after enjoying the cold and fine cloudy water droplets of Ulan-Ulan Falls, there’s actually another waterfall that has long been waiting for all of us. It is peacefully hiding above the Ulan-Ulan Falls and it has a cold and deep catching basin. I felt like I wasn’t satisfied enough with how I flirted with Ulan-Ulan falls because of the unfavorable leisure time that I should have had. And because of that, I was also thinking that travelling to the Recoletos Falls might fill my delectation.

Recoletos Falls is located just above the Ulan-Ulan Falls and peacefully hiding in the lush scenery green forest of Sampao, Almeria, Biliran. Getting to this waterfall from the jump off area will take you approximately 30 minutes of a smooth trek and a 5 minute walk from the well known Ulan-Ulan Falls. While on your way to this waterfall, it provides you a beautiful scene that would surely mollify you. The stream of water that flows in the mountain of Almeria is somehow creates and hides a mass of amazing waterfalls and an awesome spot for Canyoning and river trekking. No wonder that Biliran is known for a great adventure which will surely unlock your wanderlust soul.

The Recoletos waterfall is estimated approximately 15 meters high. It owns a wide pool with deep cold water that is perfect for swimming and cliff jumping. There’s a wide and flat stone surrounding the catching basin, which is perfect for those that loves to commune with nature and a great spot for picnic. The area is surrounded by green foliage which provides an umbrageous spot to protect you from the clinging heat of the sun. It is said to be one of the reasons why the water is really cold.

The arduous trek to Mt. Tres Marias while enjoying its stunning innate view.

The Mt. Tres Marias in Biliran is said to be the highest mountain on Biliran Island and the second highest mountain in Region VIII or in Eastern Visayas Region in the Philippines and one of the active volcanoes in the Philippines. It is next to Alto Peak, which is the highest mountain in the Eastern Visayas Region. The name was derived from the three peaks that comprise the stack. Our guide told us that we can explore the three peaks for 3-4 days, but only few people who have explored the three peaks. What most trekkers have done is to reach the 3rd and the highest pinnacle among the three which stands around 1,315 MASL.

Right after enjoying the innate beauty of Ulan-Ulan and Recoletos Falls we then prepared for our trek to the summit of Mt. Tres Marias. Our foremost goal is to reach the lunch area so we can have our lunch. The track leading to the lunch area is not really that steep, but along the way, I felt like the trail is starting to divulge its backbreaking nature. A true training of what patience and perseverance is what I’m trying to espouse. The action is being learned to fully understand both is what I’m trying to bear in mind while I continue traipsing my feet on the trail. I was hungry and my trail food has helped to mollify my famished stomach until I got to the lunch area. Our guide pointed his finger while telling us, that’s where we can have our lunch break. I was grinning from ear to ear as I heard him completely uttering the whole sentence.

Near the river and on the flattened rock while listening to the gurgling sound of the river while having our lunch was what made our lunch time romantic. Genuinely, the plashing river soothed our jaded body. We rested after our lunch and I even tried to get a nap. A quick lunch and a quick rest as this is enough to continue on our trek to the camping site of Mt. Tres Marias which is our primary goal before the evening will arrive.

Just before I started traipsing my feet to the assault track, I reminded myself that getting to the summit is my real destination. Then the strenuous trek has started, getting lost in the forest has made me to pant like a horse. I begin to feel my heavy backpack while my two little feet are struggling, but patiently moving upward. The umbrageous surrounding due to the lush scenery green forest has somehow given me a comforting touch. I’ve seen wild flowers, small insects, a lowly snake, unusual scenery and above all, seeing the whole forest like I owned whatever I see. It’s truly beyond compare and I started enjoying the trek. My tiring body slowly learning how to rhyme to the natural beauty of the virgin forest. I started capturing small, but beautiful objects whenever I get the chance. The trail becomes my closest ally and the scenery becomes my pacifier.

Then the defining moment came, after our gallons of perspiration, a tiring body, unending stories and enjoying the forest views, we finally have reached the camping site around 4:30 PM with the whole team.

We then had to prepare our food for our dinner to reward ourselves from the tiring trek. Shortly enough, we all gather in a lively camping set up while enjoying our luscious food. After our dinner, and as we have given enough time to repose. Our guide told us about the mysterious and a unique scenery that continues its never ending work in the darkness and can entirely be experienced at the camping site of Mt. Tres Marias. In the peaceful forest ground at the camping site is where the presence of fungi, and some own an enzyme that can be luminous. He asked us to turn off all our lights and check the natural luminous light that can be found around the camping site by going close to the huge trees. They were all beautiful and just amazing to gaze at. I feel like I was one of the casts of the Avatar movie that have felt the very unaccustomed scenery. We couldn’t stop throwing questions to our guide about what we have seen, he simply told us that maybe an expert could explain better.

I truly bothered about what I have just seen until I fell into a deep sleep. The mountain breeze and the serenity I have experienced was what lulled me into a deep slumber.

At 5:00 AM, everyone has woken up, we then prepared for our breakfast, had some hot coffee, and early breakfast, since we set out to climb the summit. As we depart from the camping site and starting to trek in the dense woodland. I felt like I was far from the normal world that I used to experience. The infinite stunning scenery of beautiful trees and a mossy forest is truly beyond comparison. You’ll be seeing millions of bryophyticplants characterized by a gametophyte which is a generation of a plant with an alteration of generations that begins with a haploidspore and produces gametes through mitotic divisions. It is indeed an unaccustomed scenery that won’t stop you to keep appreciating it and be amazed while trekking to the summit.

After about 2 hours of trekking and overcoming the backbreaking trail from the camping site going to the summit, we had finally set foot on the summit. I actually didn’t recognize that we have reached the summit as I haven’t seen any clear spot where we get to see the overlooking view. As our guide told us that we are now on the summit, I handed him a blank face. What makes it funny as we compare our expectation to the reality is when the summit setting isn’t the usual summit that we used to see. In order for us to see the stunning view, we need to climb the unstable and movable trees which would make our whole body shake. There were actually a mass of trees that surround the summit and if you’re brave enough to climb, then you’ll get to see the stunning view from above. Truly, after viewing the astonishing summit view in a glimpse, the clouds started to fill the whole space of the view which makes the view became so shy and started hiding its beauty away from us.

The steep track that we have encountered as we ascend to the summit is the same level of challenge as we moved down. We get to really be careful and make sure to really use our firm muscle leg to stave off the pressure while treading our feet on the steep track. Shortly enough, we have arrived at the camping site and we immediately had our early lunch, break camp in the fastest way as we can so we won’t get to the foot of Mt. Tres Marias in an evening time. We had our quick group picture before leaving the camping site, while holding the flag of the Philippines, as we celebrate the Philippines Independence day.

Exploring the jaw-dropping beauty of Sambawan Island after successfully climbing Mt. Tres Marias

It was completely dark when we made our way to Sambawan Island. The beautiful moon has begun to show up and so kind to share its light with us. Everyone was exhausted and so hungry. We haven’t exactly figured out how we smell that time. All of us were excited to douse ourselves into the aquamarine water of Sambawan Island. The ocean breeze is touching our surface, leading me to take a nap. About one hour of boat ride has given me time to rest my tiring body.

Soon enough, the light from Sambawan Island seems to be shining like as if telling us that we are now so close to the island. Then we heard the wave kissing the coast and so our boat. One of the caretakers of the Island approach us while asking us about the space rental for the tent since most of us own a tent. He likewise told us about the price for the available rooms. Then we decided to simply get one room so we could have a good space to cook our dinner and breakfast on the following day. But most of us were just setting up a tent near the pebble coast of the Island. I was so happy that we bought some bread from the mainland at least we have something to nibble while waiting for our dinner at some of our friends were cooking for the dinner. I couldn’t wait to eat and douse myself into the turquoise water of Sambawan Island. It was already around 9:30 PM when we had our dinner. So basically, all of us were really hungry and as anticipated, all food that we have prepared could not run from our famished stomach.

We make it to a point that our time on Sambawan Island won’t be precisely like a typical vacation on an Island. We all gather together near the pebble coast, have some drinks and have fun. We couldn’t halt some moments where we get laughed out loud because of the jokes and comic stuff. We genuinely have enjoyed and after we had our social, we also take the chance to dip into the turquoise water of Sambawan Island. It was past 1:00 AM before we decided to get out of the water and of course have our final wash before moving inside our tent and rest.

Early morning I was roused by a commanding voice of my friend, telling me that I have to wake up to see the sunrise. My eyes were still not in the mood, I rub it and slowly attempting to open it. Then a beautiful scene of sunrise hue, started to divulge.

In order for us to see the beautiful view of the sunrise. We get to ascend to the highest elevation of the Sambawan Island. While on our way to the top, the morning air was really relaxing and cold. It wasn’t that hard if you go up, but the stairs might challenge your legs and bones.

Along with the highest elevation of Sambawan Island, there’s a watch tower built where we get the chance to see the panoramic view of the entire Island. It actually serves as a viewing deck to witness the beautiful sunrise and sunset in which I’ve seen both. Truly, it won’t exactly leave you speechless, but it will capture your heart. I have enjoyed the semi-curved beach view with the towering beautiful rock formations and covered with green grass where you get to watch them moving like as if dancing when the wind blows. The interconnecting stony islets that connect the two beautiful main Island is what makes Sambawan Island beautiful in its own right.

On the highest elevation of Sambawan Island, there’s also a famous big rock that stands firmly while facing the panoramic vista. Many visitors and travelers will try to climb to the huge rock, but fails to make it. It really needs someone to assist you before you can make it to the top of the rock, unless if you are physically fit then you can definitely climb without someone’s help. We truly have enjoyed the morning and facing on the other side from the viewing deck, there’s also a huge rock and a beautiful view as a backdrop for your photos. Since, we were celebrating an Independence day that time, then the idea of waving the Philippines flag was simply perfect.

A side trip to Lake Danao Natural Park, which is the Ormoc City’s natural gem.

Exactly like any other travelers, when owning a chance to have an extra time and explore some other beautiful scenery, you get to grab and own it like it’s your last day in the certain place. Yes, visiting Lake Danao was actually included in our itinerary, but scarcely an option since we don’t have much time. It was definitely a side trip, simply a chance to traipse my feet in its innate beauty means a chance to commune with mother nature.

As we made our way to the Lake Danao Natural Park. The weather suddenly changes as we get to the higher elevation. The cold wind hugging us tight, filling our longing to embrace the comforting Provincial breeze. The green fields along the highway has been unselfishly showing its natural beauty with us. It was truly a stunning natural landscape that we all have enjoyed while on our way to Lake Danao. We really have embraced the peaceful moment and the comforting cold breeze that we own while we were inside the Jeepney and has made us so relaxed.

Then the defining moment came, as we nearly reached the Lake, the cold breeze is even more colder, which have actually caused us to look for a jacket. I’ve viewed the mountain range with a lush scenery green forest and the leaves are dancing like as if waving to us and welcome us. Then the partial view of the Lake slowly divulges to us and have made us dumb. We then decided to go first to the viewing deck to view the lake at a different vantage point. Soon enough we reached the well constructed view deck that have given us a panoramic view, which we actually have expected to see. At the top of the viewing deck, one must experience the cold breeze and the panoramic view of the guitar-shaped lake. From the viewing deck, you’ll see how serene and stunning it is which will surely capture not only your attention, but your heart as well.

Then, we went closer to the entrance of the Lake, there were these stalls along the way where they are selling food, veggies, flowers, orchids and a lot more. And just adjacent to the lake, there is this natural pool as well, which is actually for little kids that love to swim since the Lake Danao is deep and not advisable for kids to swim. Truly, before entering to the sensational beauty of Lake Danao, you’ll get to mesmerize with all what you can see outside as these will surely interest you.

We then pay around Php 25.00 for the entrance fee, then rented a floating cottage which is only Php 150.00 for an hour. We also rented a boat for only Php 100.00 and a life buoy for only Php 50.00. The rate that we got was actually cheaper than the usual rate, since we made it late in the afternoon like around 3:00 PM. The floating cottage is actually has a grill area where people can cook some fish or meat, but since we didn’t have adequate time during our visit, we actually truly have not made use of the freebies of the floating cottage. Upon getting at the floating cottage, there’s actually a long and sturdy rope that looks like being used to take control of the floating cottage so it won’t get anywhere. And in order for us to go to the middle of the Lake so we can fully enjoy our Lake Danao experience, we need to have a team work and start pulling the rope. It was really a tiring task, but it was fun.

I was not feeling well during that time, what I did was simply watching my friends while enjoying Lake Danao. Some of them were hooking a fish, swimming, boating and even enjoying the life buoy. I couldn’t deny the fact that I wanted to swim as well, since my friends told me that the water was very cold. I strained to suppress myself from doing some Lake activities to elude from accident, since I’m really not feeling well that time. Truly, my friends, has truly enjoyed and hence I am. But before we leave the floating cottage and Lake Danao, I tried to experience boating and it was really funny cause I was really struggling. I couldn’t even get to where I really desired to go, and going back to the floating cottage was a real struggle. The good thing was, my friends were kind enough to help me.

There’s actually more to experience in Lake Danao and a lot of exciting water sports activities. Aside from fishing, swimming, boating that we have experienced during our visit. They also offer kayaking, paddle boarding and a lot more. Lake Danao Natural Park truly an awesome place to stay not just during summer, but anytime of the year. If you’re a nature lover like us, then definitely Lake Danao is really worth a visit.

We may didn’t own a leisure time during our visit, but during our stay, we truly have enjoyed Lake Danao. It was very peaceful and a pure nature at its best. Our visit in the Lake Danao Natural Park was one of those travel journeys that came to be unexpected, but really amazing and worth it. It was nearly dark when leave Lake Danao and our Jeepney driver was waiting for us, cause we need to go back to Ormorc City.

Ambling around the peaceful and beautiful City of Ormoc at night.

  4. such a lovely detailed article covering both the personal thoughts as well as critical info regarding the trip in case one wishes to attempt it and the moonlight visual was just amazing .. thx for sharing


  5. Wow, this trip is packed! You’ve done a lot yet you didn’t spend that much. Impressive. I love that there’s even a camping involved and the waterfalls, so beautiful! That weird looking creature with a body that looks like the back of a scorpion is cute. Never seen anything like it before.


  6. What an incredible trip. The scenery is breathtaking and your trek is an amazing experience. That red creepy crawly scared me a bit, I am sure you must have encountered many. The clouds engulfing the scene was a bit disappointing. And I simply loved the idea of flating cottage. Hoping to experience one.


  7. Wowwwww. My mouth dropped when I saw the waterfall!!! So beautiful hehe and now I’m so tempted to goooo. Also 3k for 3 days is really affordable. Love that you also put the itinerary 😊😊😊


  8. Absolutely breathtaking. Staying in the forests for 2 nights is not easy! Awesome, that you pulled it off. Exploring virgin forests are always just too awesome to describe in words or photos. I’m sure what you felt at that place was several times more fascinating when compared to your description & photos.
