after ascending the new highway on the boundary of the province of Nueva Ecija and Aurora, we reached the area where we were exhilirated by the lush green mountain range of the Sierra Madre.we made a stopover to capture the grass-covered hills which extends down to the small town of Dingalan. the view was beautiful that made me think that setting up a welcome arc to this town would be insignificant.but despite this view, one cannot forget that this town faced a great challenge. it was in 2004 when two typhoons hit this side of the country and killed many locals. the main cause was the rampant illegal logging during those times.but the way we see it, the town has already recovered from the tragedy. most of the mountainous part, where the actual ladslide took place, were already covered with trees.this town may not be that popular yet, but it is the home to one of the few paragliding site in the Philippines. take time to watch this video from bukopie on the paragliding test flight on the hills of Dingalan. check out more beautiful mountain and seascape from Lawstude's tandem post of this here.
[what you shouldn't miss there]>>> the view site overlooking the town and the Pacific Ocean.
[why i should go back] >>> to trek the hills of the paragliding area. no one knows, i might even have the chance to paraglide.
