PATAG, SILAY CITY TRAVEL GUIDE
Often referred to as the “Paris of Negros Occidental,” the Silay City is a gem in the middle of the province. It has proved its worth in various ways to the locals as well as to the foreigners who happen to choose the place as their vacation destination in the province. More than the heritage houses located in the area, what is more, fascinating is the natural beauty of the place brought by the greeneries of trees, plants, and all other natural resources. One particular place that is famous for its beauty is the place of Patag.
Well, this secluded village is not that easy to reach since you will have to wait for the scheduled jeepney, the only means of transportation going there, to take you there. The one hour journey from the public market of Silay going to Patag will only cost you 60 pesos. Don’t worry! Even if the trip is long and tiresome, all the efforts would surely be paid off once you see the beautiful village. This will awaken the adventurous part of you because you can do varied activities here just like trekking and hiking. One adventure that you should not miss is the hiking going to the famous Dumalabdab Falls. With the 30 – minute struggle in hiking, you will feel so relieved and accomplished once you’ve seen the falls and once you start taking a bath on it.
The additional adventure also awaits as you go to the Patag Dam Falls, the primary source of water and irrigation to the locals. Enjoy the green sceneries along with the falling hush sound of water as you breathe the cold fresh air. There is also another well-known attraction in the place called as Pulang Bato.
Now, if you think that you would like to spend the night with the rest of your friends in this place, then there is no need for you to worry because there are a lot of mountain resorts available in the area. Just choose whichever fits your taste and your budget.

You may also bring your food to save, or you could even cook at the resort.
