Camiguin is one of the provinces that has been highly colonized by the Spaniards during the colonial times. They’ve been highly influenced with religion, making Catholicism a dominant religion in the province. The Walkway to the Old Volcano is usually included to the places to see for most Roman Catholic travelers.
The place is mostly crowded during the Lenten Season as most Catholic travelers includes the Walkway into their itinerary.
The Walkway to Volcano is located in Barangay Bonbon, Catarman in Camiguin, it is a kilomoteres 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 the religious Catholics during Lenten season as they can practice their belief of repenting in 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 tourists 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 sells souvenirs and snacks are around the area for anyone who might want to find a keepsake or something to eat during the trek.
