Gullas Drive: A Scenic Stopover at the top of Minglanilla

Roads are a means for us to reach our destinations but in Cebu, some roads were meant to be the destination.

A certain road in Minglanilla is a famous stopover for locals especially to those who are looking to take a break from the journey of life. Located at the top of Minglanilla’s hills, Gullas Drive has become a famous destination among the locals due to the relaxing views of nature at the top. More than just being a road that takes people from one place to another, Gullas Drive gives visitors a sense of freedom and it soothes the soul with its tranquil ambiance.

Many bikers love to include Gullas Drive into their biking itinerary due to the breathtaking views that it possesses. On one side, it has an overlooking view of the city and on the other are mountainous terrains with the road sandwiched in between. Gullas Drive isn’t only a place of retreat for mountain bikers but it is a destination for anyone with a penchant for relaxing views and the scenery of nature.

Gullas Drive is a haven of peace and serenity that allows people to experience a moment of seclusion from the troubles and stresses that the distant city harbors. The hustle and bustle of the city are just but muffled sounds carried by the wind. On a warm and lovely day, the blue of the sky and green of the mountains fill the surroundings with life. The natural background rejuvenates those who visit, allowing their bodies and minds to relax momentarily.

For all the reasons mentioned above, Gullas Drive is the perfect place for a stopover.

Due to the fame of Gullas Drive, many food stalls have set up shop on the mountain drive to satiate the thirst and hunger of those who climb the mountain drive. Many habal-habals or motorcycles for hire are willing to take anyone to the scenic mountain road so access is the least of anyone’s problems.
