Batanes of the East: Dingalan, Aurora



 I'll be posting pictures I took when I was in the place called Mountain View in Dingalan, Aurora, it is also well-known as the Batanes of the East. At the end of this post is the contact number of the president of their tour guide association. Updated 'to so far kasi July 2017 lang kami umakyat.

Gusto mo 'yung ang gulo at kunga ano lang maisipan kong ilagay 'yung andito? Well, ako hindi. Ang gulo guloooooooo uhuhuhu kasi naman nasa January pa lang ako kung lakwatsa ang usapan... or not. hahaha. Kasi may akyat pa kong hindi napo-post nung November pa pala 'yon.


Anyway, unahin ang Batanes of the East habang wala pang Batanes na totoo sa listahan.. hmm, universe? Whatcha think? 


Sinundo kami ni kuya tour guide ng 5 AM sa transient house. Well. HAHAHAHA. Di kami ready as in ang sarap matulog, bes. Ilang beses kaming nag snooze hanggang sa kumatok na sa pinto si Pastor. HAHAHAHA. :))))))

Walang ligo ligo, bihis lang tapos akyat. Buti na lang hindi gaanong mainit at paulan-ulan na nun kaya hindi sobrang lagkit sa pakiramdam. May nakasalubong kaming nagbe-benta ng pandesal kaya maliban sa tubig, 'yun lang dala namin pero madali lang naman kasi 'yung akyat - less than 30 minutes lang. Sakto lang pang energize sa umaga. 

You have to options getting to the jump off point.

Ride a boat from feeder port which rates, I don't know or trek for P 250.00. The trek was easy although there's a part where you'll pass through boulders but very bearable.

Dalawa lang kami nagpunta kaya we had to divide P 250.00 to two but the rate remains the same regardless of how many you are in your group.


The trek to the jump off point of Batanes of the East is along the rocky shore of Dingalan. The whole trek made the view a lot more worth it though it took as probably more than hour. 


Once you reach the White Beach then malapit ka na sa katotohanan.

The ascent was short. It was less than 30 minutes but was slippery and steep. Good thing they've put ropes which you can hold onto. Sobrang dulas tapos naka sandals lang ako kaya nakakayod ko 'yung putik. haha!



We went here on a weekday which was a very good decision. We only had to share the whole place with these dogs. The "summit" wasn't that big so it'll be hard (and noisy) if there were a lot of people there during your visit. 

 There are two areas to go to when you're here, one is the mountain view which is the "Batanes of the East" and the opposite side which has the lighthouse. 




Feel na feel eh.

Sobrang ganda ng place at ang perfect ng weather pagdating namin sa taas at higit sa lahat, walang ibang tao! Mga 30 minutes kaming naupo, tinitignan kung gano kaganda 'yung lugar bago kami nag simula mag picture. 

Nung bumaba na kami nagsimula ng umulan - ng malakas. Parang pinagbigyan lang. Ganern. 



I am so ready for you, totoong Batanes!!! <3

I'll be posting the itinerary and the budget of this two days and one night trip in Dingalan soon when I am able to post some of my backlogs from way back whennnn. I only posted this earlier so I can share the cellphone number of the person you may contact. hehehe. 

Kuya Albert - 092969639831 (tour guide organization president)

'Yung tour guide namin ay si Pastor. haha. I'm so sarreh kay Kuya kasi nawala ko ata 'yung number niya. Update ko na lang 'to pag nahanap ko, pinicturan ko lang kasi pero siya hanapin niyo. Sobrang patient at mabait.
