Mt. Naupa: Chasing Sunset


What I love about Cebu is that I can enjoy both the city and the beauty of its nature. I can escape from the city in a few hours and have an adventure the whole day.

Just like this day hike in Mt. Naupa.

Mount Naupa is a 1,916ft / 584m mountain peak. It is the highest peak in Naga City. It is an easy climb and I’m sure anyone can do it. Even beginners. You don’t believe me? Meet Mae. She is the daughter of our guide, Sir Jude. She was with us during this adventure.

This climb was organized by Marj. I met her during our Agrao escapade, two years ago. That’s the beauty of travelling. You can meet a lot of people that will definitely help your wanderlust cure or make it worse. She’s also an adventure junkie. Go check her blog Dakilang Laagan.

 How was it?

Like what I said earlier,it was easy. It only took more than an hour to reach the summit.

Also, our hike was an ideal time, since we were there to chase the sunset.

We had a good amount of rest and took a lot of pictures. We also had fresh coconut juice!
