Tirambulo Highland Resort - Journey to the Center of Mabinay (Part 2)

In the late 1980's, an ex-Mayor of Mabinay, Negros Oriental, Philippines, developed his property and named it Tirambulo Highland Resort. The small pond of Mr. Cristito Tirambulo's property was made into six large man-made lake. The largest one is named Lake Cristito.

A nearby spring serves as a fresh water source of these lakes. Activities you can enjoy are water-biking, kayaking, fishing, and even swimming. The resort has a lot of fishing spot where guests can catch fish and let the restaurant's chef cook it for meal.

The place was so big for a guest like me who's not into trekking this time. It would be more than okay if the resort has a golf cart to tour around their guests. I wasn't able to take pictures of the other lakes, because the first two were located in the entrance area. 

We were really hungry and exhausted in the ride to Tirambulo Highland Resort. The road was not fully cemented, and we have to struggle with the rough road.

The photo above is a Pedicab under the scorching heat of the sun. This is the way going to Tirambulo Highland Resort. Bright and beautiful as it may seemed, but you would wish for a pouring rain when you're in that pedicab. It was too darn hot! 

In my last post (HERE), we explored the camping area of Tirambulo Highland Resort. We joined the others and checked for their mini-waterfalls. One of them is the first photo above. It's actually a small waterfall. I just zoomed in the camera to focus how beautiful it was. These are actually the outlet of the water flowing from the natural spring nearby. It was really cleverly designed.

We joined the others in the resort's kiddie pool. We really wish we booked an overnight stay in the resort.
To the swimming pool
The resort has only one swimming pool. Alongside, you would have the playground for kids.

  15. Fishing din ang unang pumasok sa isip ko habang tinitignan ang mga photos. Yung photo na daanan tapos parang grassland yung sides, ganun yung mga type kong eksena :D

  16. Pansin ko lang lagi kayong magkasama ni Xoxo-Grah sa mga gala. Mukhang bestfriends ah. :-)

    Cleverly designed nga pero mukhang mahirap marating kasi kailangan mong mag-tricycle para makarating sa resort. Pero ganyan talaga ang buhay. Kailangan dumaan sa hirap.
