Osmeńa Peak is known to be the highest point of elevation in the island of Cebu. It is around 1000 meters above sea level. It is located in the southern part of the Cebu province, specifically Mantalongon, Dalaguete. Mantalongon is dubbed as the "Summer Capital of Cebu" or the "little Baguio" because of its climate.
It is probably the coldest part of Cebu. Mantalongon is also a ...
major player in trading vegetables, crops, and flowers, in the island. I also observed that there are several plants and trees in the vicinity that we could not find in the big city, or in the lower land. It is indeed a nice place to visit.

South Cebu is, for me, a splendid mash-up for jaw-dropping wonders and sights. Praised for its striking waterfalls, towering peaks and powdery white-sand beaches, this sought-after tourist and backpacking trail is home to some of Mother Natureās masterpieces, like the Kawasan Falls and OsmeĆ±a Peak. A playground for intrepid travelers like me, South Cebu also offers a multitude of outdoor adventures, from spelunking and hiking to diving. Furthermore, itās stepped in culture and history, as well as boasts a bevy of tasty culinary treats like the chicharon, lechon and Argaoās famed torta.
Osmena Peak can be found on the island of Cebu in the Philippines, and is the highest mountain on the island standing 1,013 metres above sea level.
How to get to Osmena Peak
From Baidian it takes around an hour and a half to get to Osmena Peak. We took an open air taxi for 750PHP which can fit around 6 people in.
Alternative forms of transport include the traditional tricycle taxis, which would probably be a little cheaper.
I would advise against getting a car to Osmena, as the roads are often bumpy and winey. Although the ride is long, the scenery on the way is worth it alone.
Cebu is indeed a place blessed with such gems. From the mountains to seas to rivers and waterfalls, a weekend is never enough to completely explore the island. The frolicking soul longed for a fantastic Cebu adventure since I rested for a few weeks.
I was invited by my blogger friends to join in a jam-packed weekend of adventure going to the South of Cebu. I'm super thrilled when it comes to this because I knew that Cebu has a lot to offer. We embarked on an adventure with a flexible itinerary but it was all made possible by excellent tour services of Travels by Omnia Bellus.

OsmeĆ±a Peak is the highest point in the island of Cebu, a province in the Philippines. Standing 1,013 meters above sea level, this stunning site offers a dramatic view of jagged cliffs with a view of the sea in the distance.
One of the most visited places in the Philippines is Cebu, and if you are like me who heard that the hustle and bustle in this country is a lot like the crowded capital Manila, you would wonder why tourists flock to this highly urbanized province, until you yourself would have a chance to investigate it with your own pair of eyes. Thus, my friends and I went on a short trip to Cebu.

OsmeĆ±a Peak is said to be the highest point in Cebu City. We were still wet from our Kawasan Trip but we rode a habal-habal (motorbike) to Dalaguete. We went up, up, up, and the air grew really chilly.
The view was also absolutely stunning! There were mountain ranges coated in lush green grasses, there were residential places and the downtown Cebu as viewed from up above.
After an hour's trip from Badian, we arrived a little before ...
