Why Mount Luho is special ?
Mount Luho is the highest point in Boracay and one of the tourist attractions that rises up to an altitude of 100 meters above sea level. It is a small mountain with a viewing deck and one can get an amazing view of the east coast from of the island. This is the most impressive viewpoint and the highest elevation (100 meters above the sea) on Boracay Island. it's not an easy climb but the view above Mount Luho is worth it. The best way going there is to hike or take your mountain bike up and steep road going north from Barangay Bulabog, on the Eastern side of Boracay Island. Leaving Bulabog Village, you will reach a much quieter world with only the chirps of birds and occasional distant banca. Continuing north, a sign on the road will tell you where to pay a small entrance fee and begin your climb to the panoramic view of Boracay Island.
What to explore at Mount Luho?
Mt. Luho is a small mountain where a viewing tower and walkway was built. From here you have a fanstatic view of Bolabog Beach, the Fairways and Bluewaters Golf Course and the ocean. It is possible to walk up here from Bolabog Beach (north end), but the road is steep so good body condition and legs are needed. By mountain bike, its nice to ride up from the back side. Follow the main road up to where the golf course starts, there is a little sign painted on the first wall of the golf course. Do not hesitate to ask people around there. From d*Mall and up to Mt. Luho, it is about 30 min with mountain bike. It is possible to rent a tricycle to go there, but be aware that they will ask you for about Php 150 to go up there, because its a bit hard for their motors.
However, standing up there during the sunset is marvelous, but a lot better to be here during the sunrise. During the sunrise, there is no people, you will might be alone, no noise except from the birds and the wind.
