It’s ironic how the word ‘unwind’ can be satisfied by an abundant serving of wind.
The greatest escape from stress comes at the top. Having a vast spectacular view, unpolluted air and nature’s sound calms us like no other, which is what this new spot from Naga flaunts and more.
Located in Naga, a few kilometers away from the national highway, is a breathtaking mountain of green, Manayon’s Peak. Here you can watch the sunset with your friends and might set up camp for some star gazing.
This trail will let you observe rural life away from the city. It’s an easy hike to inhale your much needed breath of fresh air.
Outdoor activities you can enjoy:
- sunset watching
- Entrance fee: None for now
- Bring your own food and drinks (locals might sell food soon)
