That Thing Called Tadhana couldn't have shown it any better: Hiking is one of the best ways to heal after a devastating heartbreak. Screaming once you arrive at the summit isn't a requirement, but taking in the view is.
Believe it or not, there's just something about adventures in nature that can slowly heal broken hearts. Maybe it's the clean, cool air or maybe it's that feeling of being on top of the world that does the trick. But it's a fact that having a broken heart is the one of the best excuses to do some soul-searching. Below, we've listed down five day hike adventures you can take for that much-needed sesh. Go on, gather your family or friends or join a group tour all by yourself, and slowly put the pieces of your heart back together again.
The two-hour hike going to the summit is a bit challenging for beginners, but the view once you reach the summit will make all the sweat and aching muscles in your body all worth it. The best part? You'll end the hike with a swim in the clear waters of Tinipak River!
- Lake Holon in T'Boli, South Cotabato
There are two trails you can take going to the crater lake. But for first-timers, tour guides recommend the beginner's trail. However, if you insist, they might just give in and let you try the more challenging hunter's trail which gives you a better view of Lake Holon. End the hike with a yummy serving of tilapia, freshly caught by fishermen from the lake.
- Osmeña Peak in Dalaguete, Cebu
Run to the fields a la Maria in The Sound of Music while hiking with your group! The green fields and colorful flowers will make you forget about your worries and feelings of exhaustion, we promise.
- 4. Masungi Georeserve
For three to four hours, you'll encounter both the easy and difficult parts of hiking. But don't give up because at the end of the trek, you'll find yourself lying on a duyan or the Sapot perched on top of the mountain where you also get a breathtaking view of Laguna de Bay.
- Mt. Batulao
Want an easier type of hike? Mt. Batulao will give you that exactly. Your two-hour trek to the summit will be made easier by locals who offer you food and drinks along the way.
