Escape the city life by visiting one of the most serene sites near Bacolod City, the municipality of Don Salvador Benedicto. It is referred to as the Summer Capital and Little Baguio of Negros Occidental, thanks to its cold weather, tall pine trees, and lush greeneries. This private day tour is perfect for those craving for a sightseeing escapade in the scenic countryside.
Once your driver picks you up at your accommodation in Bacolod City, you will make your way toward Don Salvador Benedicto. The name of the town came from the late Vice-Governor Salvador Benedicto, the founder of the revolutionary government during the Japanese occupation. Being strategically nestled in the mountainous part of the province away from urban life, Don Salvador Benedicto is a much-wanted haven for relaxation.
When you get to the site, you will first head to Jomax Peak. This peak is best known for its panoramic view of the mountain ranges and the foggy surroundings. Here, you will see a lounge area, where you can sit back and enjoy the view. You can also rent their grill and cook your food during your stay.
From there, you will hit the winding roads of the town again and visit the Lion’s Deck. This Lion Statue, which stands by the side of the road, was erected by the Lions Club of Bacolod and features a panoramic view of the verdant landscape surrounding the vicinity. Take your photo by the statue before you make your way to the Malatan-og Falls Viewing Deck.
The deck offers you a breathtaking vista of the Malatan-og Falls in the distance, sitting at roughly an hour’s trek away. While the falls is surrounded by several verdant hills, you will have a clear, unobstructed view of the stunning cascades. There are available guides at the viewing deck if ever you prefer to trek to the falls. After your photo-op here, you will be taken back to Bacolod.
