This post is WAY overdue. Hahahaha! Anyways, I was with Philippine Bloggers Network for their 2nd Digital Social Responsibility last April (Teh. August na. Anung petsa na!). They held seminars for the Youth and the LGUs of Cavinti, focusing on the topics like different Social Media Ettiquetes, how to capture the beauty of Cavinti through photography and a little bit of insider's note on Vlogging and Blogging.

Afterwards that, we got to tour around Cavinti with some of the youth that PBNet taught.

We stayed in a tent the day before, which was pitched near Lumot Lake at Cavinti Eco Extreme Adventure. From what I remember, if you want to rough it up you can do camping for 500/head + rental ata (I kinda forgot sorry... just click on their fb page above ayt?) The 500Php is sulit because they'll give you mattress inside the tent as well as pillows and bedsheets.

Cavinti Eco Adventure Park also offers Kubo rentals (and yes, you can sleep in them comfortably) and lots of activities, from kayaking, ATVs, visiting Japanese Garden tour, and visiting the Underground Cave of Cavinti, which I will be talking about in another post. :D

So on to the adventures, we first went to a tour of Lumot Lake.

Did you know that there are bungalow type houses atop islands scattered in Lumot Lake that you can rent? We also got to do a bit of bird watching as well as see fishermen do their thing while touring around the lake. You can check out more of that tour on my youtube video :D

The first stop was a deserted island atop said lake. We got a bit of laughs and amazement as I saw a dog cross the lake while swimming. It was so cute!

The next stop we did was Cavinti's "Secret River". I cannot tell you where exactly it is, just that it is quite near to Brgy. Paowin.

Side note: Brgy. Paowin has their own Ancient language/dialect based on Latin. Check it out in the video below.

 The secret river is so refreshing. I tested the water, and the cool rush and sound of water crashing the rocks is something that lured me in. I cannot resist so I took a dip. :D

  4. I miss the outdoors. It's been awhile since I did something adventurous. I'd love to sleep in a kubo and have nature surround me. I think the last time I slept in a tent was way back in college. Your post makes me want to head out for an adventure outside the city.Great pics!

  6. Philippines really is still rich of beautiful nature. I just hope it'll be preserved for the next generation. As for Cavinti, I thought it was located in Cavite, Laguna pala. The Kubos are very classy, I like that the pathway is a step stone and not completely a cemented path.

  11. Such a fun relaxing place to visit. I like that the nipa huts are on the second floor, the view from there will surely be beautiful lalo na sa sunset, plus the breeze, no mosquitoes at night! :D
