As mentioned in my other blog post entitled “Sirao Peak – Being Silly“, I went back to Sirao peak for my sweet revenge; to witness the true beauty of it. I tagged along a friend of mine since she was curious about it and we both wanted to view the city lights from the peak.

INTRODUCTION


I already shared my first experience in this mountain and I do not intend to do the same thing. lol Together with a friend of mine ”Mhanz”, we decided to hike this mountain during daytime. Since I am already aware of the place and the trail, it will be a quick hike for the both of us.

THE STORY


Mhanz is always present whenever I visit Cebu. She was sort of an organizer/initiator for us (her old friends) to have a get together activity. This time around, I told her about my plan of going back to Sirao Peak since I was not able document my first attempt. Without hesitation, she wanted to come along and the journey started.

THE JOURNEY


During my first attempt to hike Sirao peak, I got lost in the process (Read my first post). Instead of telling you again how I got lost, I will guide you how to get there. (See photos below for reference)

Street sign “Canada Drive”
Road heading up
The Outpost
Trail Head

To give you an idea, it will take you about 5 to 6 minutes to reach the trail head starting from the Canada drive street sign. If you will go there by  motorcycle taxi (habal2x),  maybe your driver is familiar with the trail head so don’t hesitate to ask them.

PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION


In our journey, Mhanz brought a car so we could reach the area much faster. If you have read my first blog post about Sirao peak, I mentioned that I got lost and I reached an area called “Sirao Flower Farm”.

In that area, they provide a parking space for 50 pesos. However, my only tip for you is to go back in the parking area when there is still light available.

Since we wanted to witness the city lights, we went down late. The road going back was very dark and so as the parking area. (Not recommended if you have valuable items inside the car).

THE HIKE


All in all, the hike was a success because I was able to document our experience. I will post few of our photos at the peak. Hope you enjoy our quick adventure. =)
