Mt. Luho Viewpoint: The Perfect View of Boracay

Mount Luho is a nice little hill in Boracay Island where one can take in the picturesque view over the island. To get here, hail a tricycle and in just about 20 minutes, you’ll reach the site. The climb up the stairs took a brief  7-10 minutes before reaching the highest point. On the viewpoint, there were giant slippers that matched the color of my pants. Hah!

As we headed back down to the exit, we noticed that there are a few side activities to do in Mount Luho aside from sightseeing. Surprisingly, we were able to interact with a Philippine Eagle. I hope the eagle is being well taken care of.  In fairness, the eagle wasn’t as fierce as I thought it would be. I just hope I didn’t cause this guy stress! There was this guy in viewpoint who took some of our photos in his camera. By the exit point, we met this guy again and saw that he was selling the photos he took for a hundred pesos, as I remember it. The photos were great, but we didn’t buy them. Sorry, kuya.
