Iligan City, also known as The City of Majestic Waterfalls (23 all in all!), has truly evolved into a more highly urbanized area here in Mindanao.

The post Bukidnon Staycation at Pinegrove Mountain Lodge appeared first on Multi Awarded Lifestyle And Travel Blog.

Pinegrove Mountain Lodge, located just a few steps away from the main entrance of Dahilayan Adventure Park, offers value-for-money accommodation, good amenities and delicious food.

Enchanted River Surigao del Sur travel guide
