Whacky Photo: Cebu's highest peak - Osmeña Peak, Mantalongon, Dalaguete

Dalaguete
...view on top.
Osmeña Peak, located between Patong, Badian and Mantalongon, Dalaguete, is considered the highest peak of the island of Cebu at 1,013 MASL. The panoramic view up top showcases Badian's Zaragosa Island to the west, the Province of Bohol to the east, and rolling hills and ridges along the boundaries of Dalaguete and Badian. It was named, perhaps, after one of the most influential political families in Cebu - the Osmeña's.

Dalaguete is on the eastern side of the province of Cebu, which is considered as the vegetable basket of the province due to the vast vegetable plantations in the area. It is also called by most local tourists as 'Little Baguio' due to the similarity of the temperature, humidity, and ambiance of the area.

Although not a very challenging climb/trek, Osmeña peak, or otherwise known as O-peak, has been a formidable playing ground and must-go destination for Cebuano trekkers, would-be mountaineers, and outdoor enthusiasts. The view from the summit topped of with a "cloudless" skyline and majestic sunset/sunrise has been a favorite of tourists and visitors.
