Cebu, being recognized for its pristine beaches and breathtaking views, is also known to have a wide selection of mountains with established hiking trails. Numerous mountains in varying levels of difficulty, it does not matter if you are a beginner or an experience hiker because there will always be one mountain for you.

Take Osmeña Peak for example, the highest in Cebu which makes it a perfect spot to have a jaw-dropping 360-view of the island. Some consider it the “Chocolate Hills” in Cebu because of its cool rock formation and beautiful capped hills. Others also see it as the “Little Baguio of Cebu” because of its chilly temperature.
