Kawa-Kawa Hill Mountaineering Adventure

Located in California Village, Brgy. Tuburan, Ligao City in the province of Albay, Kawa-Kawa Hill is a 236 meter land form (hence a hill) that got its name from its unique features.

The word "kawa" means cauldron in the local dialect. From afar the hil seems like any ordinary hill but when you reach the summit, you'd be amazed to find a six-hectare crater.

What I find intresting in Kawa-Kawa Hill is the Stations of the Cross. Each station has larger than life statues portraying the events leading to Christ's final moments. The Stations are lined up in the 500-meter path to the crater then extends up all the way around the 836-meter rim.

I also like the idea that the local government included recreational facilities in the hill. You'd find horses and ATVs for rent, not only that, you'd alaso see eagle aviaries, sunflower gardens and a nice view of Mayon Volcano and Mt. Masaraga. I won't be surprised if one day, they'd include a zipline, anicycle, or even a hanging bridge that goes across the crater.
My sister and cousin seems to enjoy this one a lot

Overall, I enjoyed my visit to this one of a kind tourist destination.

Looks like:
Taal Volcano or a cooking pot

The boiling hot liquid

Getting there:

From manila board a bus heading to Legazpi City. Inform the conductor to drop you off at Ligao City. From there ride a jeepney or a tricycle to bring you to Kawa-Kawa Hill.
