Osmeña Peak to Kawasan Traverse - Date with Nature

We've been planning for months to go to Osmena Peak then traverse to Kawasan Falls afterwards. We read few blogs just to make sure we have the necessary information. 

After few turns of postponement, here we are.  

Osmeña Peak stands at 1,013 meters above sea level and located in Mantalungon, Dalaguete, Cebu which is considered as Little Baguio of Cebu. It is also dubbed as the vegetable basket of Cebu because of vast vegetable farms in the area. And the most visited peak in Cebu. Beginners and pros are flocking to O.Peak to marvel its beauty.

Camping in the mountains,
Makes your senses come alive.
The squawking of the blue jays,
Signals daybreak has arrived.

In the early morning hours,
Outdoors is where you want to dine.
Where the aroma of sizzling bacon,
Mingles with the scent of stately pines.

There are so many ways to spend the day,
Challenge yourself to a strenuous hike.
Go bird watching; grab a fishing pole,
Or take a ride on your mountain bike.
