Mt. Lanaya in Alegria, Cebu stands at around 700 meters above sea level. The peak of the mountain provides a panoramic view of the ocean. There are two trails to the peak: Lumpan & Legaspi. Lumpan is the easier trail and you can reach the peak in an hour via this route. Legaspi is the more challenging trail and the average angle of ascent throughout this trail is 50-60°.


How to Go to Mt. Lanaya via Lumpan Trail

To go to Mt. Lanaya via public transportation, ride a bus bound for Alegria via Bato, Barili. Then, ask the driver to drop you at the town proper. Then, take a habal-habal to Brgy. Lumpan. In our case, we also hired our habal-habal drivers as our guide to the peak.

It rained before our climb which made the ground a bit slippery so wearing a trekking footwear really helps. But thanks to the rain because we enjoyed the sea of clouds when we reached the top. The peak of Mt. Lanaya is called Kalo-kalo peak.




After descending, we decided to cool off in Cambais falls. After a short motorcycle ride, we walked around 1.5 kilometers to get to the falls.





Cambais Falls

Cambais falls in Brgy. Guadalupe, Alegria has three levels. We took a dip in the pool in the first level. This is where trekkers usually stay.
