KADAYAWAN SA DABAW HOTEL DEALS FROM AGODA



KADAYAWAN SA DABAW HOTEL DEALS FROM AGODA

Hooray!  Good News to travelers! Agoda.com -The preferred booking magnate of Filipinos offers Kadayawan Hotel Deals in Davao City to encourages more Pinoys and international travelers to experience Davao’s brightest festival.
 

Agoda.com is Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced a selection of deals on hotels in Davao for the Philippines' Kadayawan Festival.

From now until the end of September, Kadayawan Festival brings a slew of vibrant cultural events to the city of Davao, and with it a unique opportunity for travelers to delve into ethnic Filipino culture and tradition. With origins as a harvest festival held by the indigenous tribes of the Davao province, Kadayawan began as a form of thanksgiving and is today the largest festival in the southern Philippines.

Unifying the different ethnicities of the Mount Apo region, the theme of Kadayawan 2012 is "Ten Tribes, One Vibe". Festivities include cultural performances, handicraft displays and stalls, live music concerts with traditional local street foods, arts and artifacts exhibitions, colorful parades, trade expos, sports events and more.

Aside from the myriad scheduled events of Kadayawan, Davao is the perfect destination for nature lovers. Adventure seekers can head to the hiking trails of Mount Apo, the Philippines' highest peak at nearly 3,000 meters. There are trails for all levels of fitness in the surrounding national parkland, and several that lead to the summit, where experienced trekkers can view Mount Apo's crater lake.

Vacationers looking for a more relaxed experience can head to Eden Nature Park or simply enjoy stunning regional panoramas from the high altitude restaurants and viewpoints of Jack's Ridge. For an exciting day out with the family, there's a crocodile breeding center not far from the city center, complete with animal enclosures and a butterfly park. A Philippine Eagle Center is also a great educational trip for all ages, housing this endangered species as well as other animals and raptors.

For an urban Davao experience, visitors will find plenty to do in Davao city. Historic architecture, cathedrals, Buddhist temples, and the People's Park give travelers a variety of different cultural aspects to explore. There is also a generous selection of modern malls in Davao, for those who can't pass up the possibility of finding a local sale.

Conquering Mt. APO Agco-Kidapawan trail in Davao City


Conquering Mt. APO's Agco-Kidapawan trail in Davao City.
"Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb "
I would like to present to you my kababayan Lily Arlos. This is her story. And I feel honored that she gave me the go signal to share this story with all of you.
 
Meet Lily Arlos in full gear just before the two-day climb to the peak of Mt. Apo. Yes, she is so ready for the climb.
Lily Arlos is gutsy. Look at her latest conquest in Davao! Can you beat that?
 Lily with a yellow phyton.

Lily narrated this: Agco kidapawan trail kami. Bihira lang ang dumadaan sa trail na yun kasi mahirap unlike sa ibang trail ng Mt.Apo. Umakyat kami April 8, 2012 patapos na ang holy week kaya paakyat pa lang kami pababa na ang mga locals at ibang mountaineers na umakyat ng holy week.
 On the way up the mountain, they saw a group of Manobo children with make-up on their faces.
 
About dun sa bata manobo tribe ng Mindanao. Hindi ko alam nagtaka rin ako bakit naka make-up siya. Hindi ako familiar sa tribe nila. Natuwa lang ako sa kanya kaya kinuhanan ko sya ng picture. Actually kahit yung ibang bata naka make-up din sila.
 
Sobrang hirap nung climb namin kasi sa sobrang dami ng umakyat nung holy week wasak na wasak ang daan sobrang putik pa kasi laging umuulan dun rain forest kasi.
   
Ha ha ha, kahit sinong mountaineer hindi kayang I explain yan kung anong napapala namin sa kakaakyat. Kung anong nakukuha namin. Tanong ko rin yan sa sarili ko while trekking kapag feeling ko hindi ko na kayang ihakbang ang paa ko pero kapag nakarating kana sa summit kapag nakita mo kung anong meron sa taas wow! Iba! Hindi ko ma-explain ang feeling. Sabi nga "Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb and only through suffering can we find ourselves."
 
Cha: May ginagawa ka ba na preparation o exercises b4 ka umakyat?
Lily: He he. Wala. tamad akong mag exercise Hiking na ang exercise ko, Ha ha! Kaya yung 1st climb ko nung 2008 nagka trangkaso ako kala ko hindi na ko makakapag summit. Until now wala akong preparation kapag may upcoming climb.
 
Nag start ako 2008. 1st climb ko major agad.sa Mt.Pulag Benguet via Akiki trail o mas kilala sa tawag na killer trail. Hindi ko expected na major pala yun kala ko minor lang at day hike lang 3days pala.pero buti na lang naka survived
  
 
At the summit of Mt. Apo
 
Top of the world.
They managed a smile kahit sobra na silang pagod sa two days na climb na halos walang tulog.

The view from the summit. Ka level mo na ang clouds!
Lily at the summit.
Mahilig si Lily mag pose sa top ng mga bato na nag-ba-balancing act.







 Sobra ang fog kasi ka level mo na ang ulap. Ha ha ha!
Lily Arlos at Mt. Apo, Davao City. Nakuha nila ng two days ang dapat ay three days na climb.
 
Congrats Lily!  
Despite the difficulty of the climb, nothing compares with the happiness that we feel when we conquer a mountain.- Lily Arlos
