I know most of you are craving for a Batanes getaway. But we all have that one common problem: its too costly. Huhu 😦
But how about a cheaper alternative? Yes?
As majestic as Batanes is, Binurong Point, is a new attraction located in the island of Catanduanes that was just opened 9 months ago. Oh diba, it’s not yet sikat so its perfect for you to discover it yourself!
In order for you to reach the peak, you have to trek for 45mnts – 1hour. The trail is not that hard, and I bet you can survive it! As for us, it was a bit challenging since it was muddy, but still, manageable! Dont forget to bring water and cap since its hot in the peak.
Tada!!! Ahhhhhh the beauty of this place is UNEXPLAINABLE -like oa! I couldnt find the right words to describe the majestic view we were seeing that time. Truly, God has an amazing creation!
