Why Coal Mountain Resort is the best place to visit in Argao?

HISTORY
Coal Mountain Resort was used to be a carabao grazing ground of the family Caminero and coal has been mined from this place. Even under ground tunnels was still existing underneath. The reason why Caminero family named the resort to Coal Mountain in honor of the residents of the area who used to be a coal miners.

HOW TO GET HERE?
Going to Coal Mountain Resort is not that easy. It was almost 11:00am when we began our journey to this resort. We had the bus via Argao and dropped off at San Miguel Street for almost 4 hours. Then, we rode a tricycle from San Miguel Street and told the driver to drop us to where the habal-habal drivers were located. They helped us reached the resort safely. The more challenging part there were the roads, due to its turns, ups and downs – we had to tackle the roughness and the steepness of the road to the resort to almost an hour. It was a bit tiring though the views on the way to the resort were worth watching.
