“As Nagahanon I was surprised by how beautiful and nature worthy the city is.”
It wasn't on my radar when I found out about that place named Mt. Naupa – sure thing my parents did not mention it even though they lived before the city becomes a city, known for supplying electricity and has a huge factory of cement. I did a quick search to verify if this place exists, there are a lot of photos and selfies popped up. To track the place, there are two main entrances – the easiest trail is in Barangay Lutac City of Naga where you can take a habal-habal ride going to the peak, but if you want a stiff and rocky trail then Tungkop Minglanilla Cebu CIty is the best way to try.
Of course, I went down the easy track. There you can see the residents smiling and somewhat pleased to see the tourists. It's like a time machine -- I imagine how we used to live back then. You can see the people who use the woods for cooking as well as the typically Filipino vibe – the nap under the tree.
When you almost reach the peak you can oversee the hidden gem of Naga. The scenery and mountain ranges. Imagine living here and looking at things every day.
Most of the path is cemented for the comfort of the residents. But this place offers something else. Initially, an entry fee is required, but it is cheaper for residents and tourists. They also provide accommodation for those who wish to spend the night in a little hut.
The picturesque City of Naga can be seen at the top of the mountain. It is certainly not the highest summit, but suffice it to say that it is a haven for those who cherish landscapes like this.
The sun was ready for sunset and the sky is partially orange shade. You will be surprised at the sea of clouds appears, covering the landscape. The stately view perfectly matches the silhouette of a solitary mango tree.
As Nagahanon, it was surprising to see how beautiful and nature-worthy this city is. And we must always explore and enjoy our unique region. Maybe the clime is more than just a clime.
