In the small town of Alegria in the Philippines, I woke at 3 am, gathered my gear and met our driver at the front of our hostel. For 500 Pesos per person or $10 USD we had a return trip to Osmeña Peak, the tallest peak on Cebu.
The three of us crammed onto the habal-habal, which was easy on the wallet but incredibly uncomfortable on the butt cheeks. If you are a budget traveler it will be your only choice from Alegria when looking to hike Osmeña Peak, but if you have the cash rent a car or get some other way up there!
Book a tour: You can do it DIY like me but there is a really good tour you can book as well. The tour I can recommend to you actually includes a visit to Kawasan Falls and Osmena Peak on the same day for just $30!

The highest mountain in Cebu, Osmeña Peak is the “peak” spot from which you can get stunning 360-degree views of Cebu island. It’s the most famous and beautiful viewpoint on Cebu.

This is an easy trek with unbelievable view on top! For non-experienced climber like me, it really is a great achievement to say that I am able to climb Osmena Peak, which is incidentally the highest peak in the province of Cebu.
From airport, we went directly to the peak. You need to get a guide in order to climb it. The local guide is quite friendly and took lots of great pictures of us. You can also rent bamboo walking sticks to help with your balancing.
Osmeña Peak is the highest mountain in Cebu. I was not able to feel the heat of the sun because of the cold atmosphere. Being said as the highest mountain, it is not that hard though to climb on top because mostly you will just ride a motorcycle or what the locals refer to as 'habal-habal'. It is a little frightening though because you might fall off the edge.
