Appreciating the beauty of the two mystical mountains - Mt. Banahaw and Mt. Cristobal - right in the middle of them, the beautiful and peaceful valley of Bangkong Kahoy in Dolores, Quezon possesses a unique fusion of the two mountains and served as our sweet hideout from the busy metropolis a few weeks back for the first Organic Bloggers Gathering for the year 2014.
Three hours away from Manila, Bangkong Kahoy Valley is nestled at the adjoining arms of two mountains offering a 56-hectare well-kept private land inside the Mt. Banahaw Protected Area. Owned by the family of Mr. Dionisio "Dion" Pulan since 1920, Bangkong Kahoy Valley has been considered as one- if not the greatest - treasure by the family providing tranquility and relief to each and everyone of them.
The whole lot, I must say, looks really well kept. With some transient houses that guests can rent out for a night, a week or even a month, Bangkong Kahoy caters to students who are there to discover the wonders of Mt. Banahaw and Mt. Cristobal, to families and barkadas who seek refuge from the crazy metro life, up to the farmers who wanna know the latest invention and discoveries in organic farming.
