Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary: Take the trek for a different kind of bonding!

When we went up in Baguio City last year, we decided to go to the Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary for a change. We've been to the City of Pines a couple of times and things had become quite monotonous: ride a bike, paddle a boat and mount a horse--so to make it extra special, we went to go trekking on the hilly terrain of the Sanctuary.

The best part is the hanging bridge. It is quite curve so we had to be really careful. The view had been perfect--stunning and we felt like boy scouts while we were touring the said place. There were 14 stations on the Sanctuary. The cosmic journey one has to take is quite steep, but definitely worth one's trip.

Yes, it's a hilly terrain and you have to go down to enjoy the view.
One will enjoy nature at its best. Communing with nature and in deep prayer will surely be experienced in Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary. They even had picnic areas but you have to bring in your food. Also be ready with a bottle of water in hand as the trek will surely make one thirsty.

Children should be accompanied by adults and everyone is to use caution due to the hilly terrain.

Here we come!
