Nestled among trees in the Clark Freeport Zone is a place called Lily Hill. It's best known as a former military hideout for the last Japanese troops during World War II. Lily Hill got its name from what the local Aetas called Americans in the area at the time: "Lili," which means "Lost" in Kapampangan.

The most notable landmark here is a 5-ton granite statue of Guan Yin, the Buddhist Goddess of Peace and Mercy. The sculpture was molded in China before it was shipped to the Philippines in 2000. Ekan Ikeguchi, the abbot of the Saifukuji Temple in Japan, commissioned it.

Today Lily Hill is covered by lush trees and bushes, making for a serene place great for a pilgrimage or a small hike.

Best time to visit

Lily Hill is open to visitors all year round, but it's best to visit on days with no rain as the shrine and statue are located outdoors.
