Our family checked in at Mt. Apo Highland Resort, owned by Philip Dizon, owner of Crocodile Park and Maxima Resort, and was lucky enough to have the place to ourselves. We got a “room” which was practically a room made of wood on stilts with two double decks. The rest room and bathroom was a separate common room outside. We didn’t mind the simple and rustic accommodation because the sweeping view of Mt. Apo and Mt. Talomo, not to mention the spectacular sunrise more than made up for it. The staff was nice and the food reminds one of home.

Another beautiful place we visited was the “Playground in the Skies” and Art Garden of Kublai Millan. Ahhhh…we could stay and play there forever and be like kids again! It’s located on a lush rolling hill, also with sweeping views of Mt. Apo.

One of our unforgettable adventures was going to Virgin Falls. That’s a subject of a different blog entry. (Check out The Virgin Falls Experience.) Meanwhile, please feel free to scroll down and browse and enjoy the views. Who knows, Kapatagan might just be your next summer lakwatsa venue.
