Into the woods where one, who endured pointy rocks, can be taller than trees. These words describe only a part of our adventure in Bucari. Anyone who wishes to experience a quite challenging hike can go here. It is only an hour and a half drive from Iloilo City. Roads going here are currently being reconditioned so expect a quite challenging drive (for few minute only). We went here after lunch so there are less cars on the road.

As we arrived the place, we were welcomed here by tall pine trees and very accommodating Ilonggos. The hike was not difficult at all. Most of us including me were not experienced hikers but we endured the climb. Who would not want to see such a beautiful view from the top? We got there, thanks for the help of a kid, who led our way for only 350 pesos. He was with us from start to end. For first timers, do not worry cause there's a trail though some parts of it does not have anything you can hold on. So be careful not to slip or else, you fall. Masakit mafall kung walang sasalo sayo. Haha
We climbed for about 30 minutes or so.

There are three major ways you can enjoy the view from the top. First is a long log that hangs a bit from the edge. Make sure to balance yourself. Don't worry because you'll just hit the ground if you fall. Second is a huge trunk of a fallen tree that also hangs from the edge. It can hold up to 20 persons. Don't look down if you are acrophobic or afraid of heights cause falling from it will definitely injure you but thanks to metal bars installed that protects you from falling. Last is the white rock formations where you'll see a breathtaking view of the rural part of Iloilo province.

Don't forget to bring water of course. There's also a small stall there where you can drink fresh buko juice for 35 pesos. Some hammocks are also installed between two pine trees.

What I really loved about this place is the view and the fact that you can take a lot of good pictures. Wherever you point your eyes, you'll never fail to say, woooooow!

What a great way to escape from the beautiful city of Iloilo to enjoy a magnificent view that lies on the other side of the province.
