If you’re a Cebuano, living in the metro, I guess you all heard about Sirao and their famous Sirao flower farm and Sirao Peak. Sirao peak is one of the most common trails to those who love trekking. It has been considered as an easy trail for them given that you have several options on which route to take.
Since my husband love the outdoors — he asked me to join him on an “easy trail” to Sirao Peak. For a beach person like me, trekking is not really one of my favorite things to take. The last time I experienced trekking was 2 years ago when we visited Osmeña Peak — haha! It was just a 30-minute hike from the foot of the mountain. It was pretty easy. So just imagine when he said that it would be around a 4-hr hike!
But then again, I was up for the challenge and joined him one weekend. It started to be an easy trail except for the part wherein we need to pass and climb all the way up to Kabang waterfalls. I need to hold on to rock and boulders without me thinking of looking down or else I may just want to stop on the middle of nowhere. Haha!
Everything went well after the waterfall fiasco. It’s an easy road to take but you need to have the stamina to reach Sirao Peak. If you’re like me who seldom exercise, then it can be a challenge. We had several stops because my legs were already shaking! Hahaha!
Amidst the srtuggle, you can always look back and see the whole metro Cebu behind you! The lush trees and the buildings in a distant made you realize that you are actually near the peak! I was able to ask a lot of “Are we there yet?!” before we reach the peak! Haha!As we reached the summit, I guess it was all worth it when I saw the view — the sunset, the city lights, the sunrise and let’s not forget the endorphins rushing down after the long climb! We spent the night there by the way — it’s cold so bring your jackets if you’re planning to do so as well. 🙂
I didn’t want take the same route going home the next day, so we took the easiest route. It was just a 30-minute hike and you’re already on the road near Sirao flower farm. We then just rode a motorcycle back to the city.
These are just some of the snapshots that I was able to salvage before ze husband deleted the photos on the camera. He thought I was able to export everything in Lightroom so goodbye photos! Haha! He said it can be another reason to go back and take much more beautiful photos. This can be another challenge but I think I still need to think about it. Haha!
