I had no clue that this even existed. To my surpise, I said “Seriously? Miracle Mountain?” But when I finally saw the sign “This way to Miracle Mountain,” I just zipped my mouth and carried on with the trek.
Me holding on to the cross. Tough winds could shake this thing. I felt it.
It’s not really a tall mountain that when you reach the peak, you’ll plant your flag and do a crazy pose and upload a photo to Twitter and Facebook – it’s not that. It’s more on the religious aspect, that’s all.
The Black Nazarene at the peak.
At Cauayan, Negros Occidental, in a little community called Brgy. Lina-on, sitting at the peak of this mountain is a statue of the Black Nazarene. Well, enduring the multitude of steps of this steepy terrain, you’ll be able to finish the 14 stations of the cross in just a mere 45-minute hike.
Talk about sacrifice and prayer. The beautiful view from the top is something immeasurable. In fact, I can see the cottage I am staying at from there. Of course, I’m kidding.
What goes up must come down – haha!
Once you have reached the top, take the time to catch your breath and adore nature’s beauty. Then, await for a more challenging trek going down. Haha! Gravity. So nice to see that something like this small marvel actually exists.
