Southern Leyte has indeed plenty of hidden gems that are yet to be discovered. From the vast oceans to the rising mountains all over the island, Leyte has proven to have wonderful sites that boast with nature.
Known as the Little Batanes of Southern Leyte, Mt. Caningag lays humbly from its overlooking view to Dinagat Islands, Limasa Island, and Surigao Strait. With a view like this, you might just be in nature-heaven.
Mt. Caningag Park is famed for its picturesque-breathtaking view perfect for IG shots and stories. The moment you step on the tip of the mountain you will witness the beauty of the clouds in motion and the calmness of the vast sea that gives the utmost scenery.
While waiting for the sunrise or the golden sunset, you may also add a picnic to your activity on this cozy- windy hill.
