Information about The Walkway in the Old Volcano
The Walkway in the Old Volcano
The Walkway to Volcano is located in Barangay Bonbon, Catarman in Camiguin, it is a kilometer away from Catarman’s national highway. It is also close to Paras Beach Resort and Caves Dives Resort. This walkway is a climbing spot paired with 14 human sized-statues located at the Old Volcano, known as Mt. Vulcan. The place has been recognized as one of the pilgrimage sites for religious Catholics during the Lenten season, as they can practice their belief of repenting at the site during those times.
The 14 human sized-statues are the representation of the popular Station of the Cross, the history of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. The statues are all cemented and painted in white in order for the travelers to find them easier despite the sun’s heat whenever they climb to reach the 14th station. The steps can be challenging at times, especially when the sun is peaked during its hottest time, but as visitors climb their way to the top, they get to see an overlooking view of the western side of Camiguin. The clear blue sea, as well as the sky, can make the climb all worth it as it provides a panoramic view and connection between the land, sea, and air.
Aside from the awesome view, guests can enjoy taking pictures along the way or even pose near the statues. Local vendors who sell souvenirs and snacks are around the area for anyone who might want to find a keepsake or something to eat during the trek.
