There are several spots for taking photos in Treasure Mountain and it would be nice if you take it at angles where more clouds float. Basic advice, hehe.

Sounds like my kind of hike! It’s really lovely out there and you get to enjoy climbing without tiring yourself out too much. It’s definitely worth it especially if you live near!
Just when I thought it would be torture to get to see a sea of clouds, here you are telling me you can even ride to the site! That is just awesome. I have not hiked in such a long time because I am not that fit anymore. Happy to learn that there are places where you can have fantastic views without having the endure a long, tiring hike.
What a beautiful place! I enjoyed all the pictures that you shared. It’s definitely beautiful up there and it’s a climb that I can handle! Thanks for sharing the budget as well.
I love this pabebe version of a climb. I would love to explore there someday with my tropa in pinas. I cant get enough how beautiful the scenery is. Perfect for families too! Thank you for sharing this awesome travel spot.
I think should have to work hard to get a good view at Treasure Mountain but don’t expect much more than a good view and picturesque photos. While the scenery was exquisite it did lack in open space to run around or roam. I am hoping for an entire mountain side to play on but it is a very small area. In spite of the size, we still enjoyed our selves all morning and attempted purify our lungs with mountain fresh air.
