Epol Mountain Resort one of the hidden Tourist Destination in Davao City

When we are in Alice Log House we found out that there is a near beautiful falls that can be visited. So when the caretaker told us we don’t think twice we grab our extra cloths and go to epol falls. We walk about 500 meters from Alice log house then after we reach the entrance of epol mountain resort we continue walking about 800 meters from the highway to the falls.

The trek was wide and descending good for backpackers and adventure seeker. You need to pay 7 pesos for the first entrance and 7 pesos for the Epol mountain resort. You can rent a cottage for 30 pesos and for parking fee for 4 wheels you need to pay 30 pesos for motor cycle 20 pesos. Very much affordable! Bring your own food because there is no store available, for safety the place is very safe no bad guys, there is also guard to watch over you.

The walk from the main entrance to the falls will take 30 minutes or less depends on the speed of your walk and the slippery of the trail.  

Epol Mountain Resort is 75 kilometers from Davao City, almost 2 hours travel from down town. It is along the high way. The falls is very beautiful and refreshing. The water is cooled and can make your hot heal cool. J I really love the falls just enjoy the place because it’s very natural and organic.

See the picture to appreciate and hope I you can visit Epol water falls one of the hidden tourist spot of Davao City.

Alice Log House Marilog Davao CIty

Unquestionably, the Philippines is a country where beaches are the main attraction and the most sought after by tourists. Aside from the clear waters of the country, there are also beautiful spots in the highlands.

Have you been to Baguio in Luzon? If you are coming from the south and want to experience the weather in Baguio, Davao City has its own version of it -the BUDA area. The common term "Buda" is from "Bukidnon-Davao" because it is situated between Bukidnon & Davao. You can experience fog, cold weather and fresh air that can satisfy your desire for Baguio. If you want to stay overnight in Buda, I recommend a place for you to stay in -Alice Log House.

Alice Log House is 75 kilometers away from Davao City, the place is also along the BUDA highway at Bagong Silang , Baganihan, Marilog, Davao City. You can contact them on their cellphone no. 0920 824 4571 for reservations. You can rent the whole house for Php 3500. There is no electricity yet in the area but a generator may be used for Php 50 per hour. You may need to bring flash lights and full charge your gadgets if your budget is tight. Don’t forget also to bring jackets and socks because the area goes below 15 degrees. Also bring your own food because there is no store at the location. They have a stove though if you want to cook there.

Alice is a good place to stay in for families of barkadas. Alice log house has a play room just beside the living room. It has Darts, Billiard table, scrabble game, Chess Game, TV and karaoke. They also have free mineral water so scratch out the water in your list. If you're adventurous you can also visit the famous Epol Spring Resort (waterfalls) which is just a 30-minute walk from Alice.

I can also recommend that this place is perfect for wedding venue and pre-nuptial photo shot. You can also do your wedding in this place because of its view on ARAKAN Valley where you can image the place like in the commercial on Marlboro Country and also in Batanes. This place is really a place to be worth of coming back. Till next time Alice J  

Below are the pictures of the place and our adventure.
