Enjoy Nature While Chilling At Lava Mountain River Farm

It was a gloomy Thursday when we gathered in the City for a great escapade in our Lives. I'm not talking about any "Survivor" series but I'm speaking of an experience worth a disconnection from the online world. I think we just started Summer right at Lava Mountain River Farm, a very hilly and mountainous side of Cebu City offering more than just a breathtaking view of the mountain.

Situated at Barangay Bonbon, Cebu, Lava Mountain River Farm is owned by the Lava Family which is a 4-hectare farm near the famous Mananga River. The Farm or the Resort encourages Tourists and Visitors to at least escape from polluted City and chill in a simple lifestyle. For this, I humbly thank Ms. Mars Espera for the invite. LAVA is cold in the morning and very cold at night. They got a flowing infinity pool that comes from the Mananga River. But before the river-water pours down to the swimming pool, it is being filtered naturally with a certain algea and some processes. Mr. Bang Gumalo, the Manager of the farm confirmed this to assure everyone a cool and clean water for swimming.

For me, Lava Mountain River Farm is a perfect way of going back to basics. They got no airconditioned rooms. They got no fancy beds. They got no wifi or data signal. A complete disconnection from our City Life which is for me a very helpful way to think, retreat, enjoy the company of our friends and family and of course cherish the tranquility that nature gives. Aside from these positive feedback, LAVA offers delicious and healthy dishes in a boodle fight of eating. Also, did I mention that here in this amazing Mountain Resort you can actually witness a real firefly roaming around the air at night? Yes, you read it right - fireflies! And a little trivia, fireflies are one of the indications that the air of a certain habitat is clean. I guess, you already know where to spend your Summer Escapade? (Wink)
