The top view of the swimming pools

This really is the perfect place if you want to stay away from the busy life of the city. Seagull Mountain View Resort is a solemn place to do some meditation and retreat. But aside from that you can also do some activities such as golfing, jogging and swimming. Although the temperature is really low and at times it can be freezing cold to swim, it’s still really fun to test your cold tolerance. The resort has 5 pools; 3 mini pools and 1 large pool located at the falls and 1 pool located near the lounge.

The big cross and the very beautiful view at 7am

Aside from these activities, there is also a chapel where you can pray and have a solemn time with God. You can also find a big cross along the trail overlooking the mountains. This is a very nice view, as if you are on the top of the world. You must go here in the morning as it tends to rain in the afternoon and the big cross is far away from the rest houses/ log cabins. You might have a hard time coming back, unless you are willing to get soaked in the rain in a freezing weather.

The view from the big cross

Yes. It’s freezing cold at around 4pm and we were caught in the rain but the fog made a very wonderful background.

If you want to have a very cool and worth it vacation, Seagull Mountain View resort is the place to visit.
