Just before my friend flew to California, we decided to take a trip to her parents’ hometown. I have actually heard a lot of good comments about the place and I couldn’t be more excited to see for myself.
For as much as I love road trips around the island, I think it will be an injustice not to mention the great places I have been to. Seeing countless areas outside the city, there I have also admired this special place from my previous trip.
|Follow the road! Going to Dumalag town proper|
I have loved one place in particular. This is the municipality of Dumalag that seems to present great gifts. A small town, it is located by the hills and slopes of the mountains blessed with fertile lands and awesome landscapes. Its name is derived from the local term “dalag” which means yellowish. This has been attributed to the river that flows across the town. It is of belief that there is a certain tree growing by the banks which gives the body of water its trademark color. To some, the name came from the word “dumalaga” or spring chicken that dwelt in the area.
|Here finally. Friends and I at the main road to Suhot|
|Where wonders start. The mouth of Suhot cave|
|Where to soak. People enjoying the ice cold water on a hot day!|
|Going green. The oxygen factory just above the cave.|
|Great place to be. Dumalag Plaza's greener pride!|
|Religious pride. The town's centuries-old church|
