When the weight of every day’s busy events get into you, all you would like to do is relax and vanish to a faraway place. A place where you can forget all your worries and just have a quiet time for yourself. That sounds exciting, right? But where? Well, if you’re looking for a perfect getaway minus the hassle of being in overcrowded and commonly-visited places then why not try visiting Dipolog City.
Do you love the thrill of hiking? Then, you must try to take a climb to the 3003 Steps to Linabo Peak. Situated at Sitio Dinginan, Barangay Lugdungan, you will find one of Dipolog’s pride. Enjoy a 1 to 2 hour hike to the highest elevation in the city and feel as if you are on top of the world as you get to see the breath-taking view of the Dipolog and its nearby towns.
Also a must-see place in this city is the Cogon Eco Park. Established in 1958, this is a 344-hectare environmental park and preserved forest. Aside from seeing the spectacular view of trees and other wildlife, there is also an aviary wherein you can take a glimpse of the exotic birds that are dwelling in this area. Another feature inside the park is the replica of Subanen Village, built to preserve the cultural heritage of Subanens. Subanens are also called the River People and are believed to be the first settlers in this city. Experience their culture as you sway along to their traditional dance and observe their everyday activities.
