Kawa Kawa Natural Park

Kawa kawa Natural Park is located in Ligao City, Albay in the Philippines.

Kawa is a Bicolano word for a cauldron and that is where the park's name is derived from. Because it looks like a big cauldron when you look at it from the top.

During summer, this becomes a big sunflower plantation where local tourist enjoys sightseeing. Sunflowers big and small is too captivating to the eyes and will definitely lift someone's mood. Last year, before the pandemic started, I was fortunate to have the beauty of those sunflowers.

It will take almost 30 minutes of walking to reach the top of the hill and it is advisable to wear comfortable shoes because the way to the top is very steep. If you a low stamina, just five minutes of walking will make you out of breath. So it is also very important not to forget to bring a bottle of water so you can replenish along the way.

Aside from the big cauldron-like hill, near it also lies the Bamboosetum Park where tourists can see different species of bamboos. Those bamboos also makes an awesome background for instagramable pictures.

Standing down the hill, just near the Bamboomsetum park, you'll see a giant heart at the top of the hill.

This is a closer snap of that heart at the top of the hill. What's amazing about this is that it overlooks the heart of the city of Ligao. It looks more amazing at night because of the hundreds of city lights that looks like stars from afar. A lot of couples loves taking their photos with this big heart on the back drop.

Near the Bamboosetum park, you'll see this wishing well. A tourist can throw any coin and make a wish. Those coins just stays there according to a care taker.

Once you visit this natural park and your eyes are done feasting with the looks down here, you can start going up the hill to watch the beautiful setting of the sun.

Watching the sunset on the of the hill while looking down at the vast plains and paddy field below is a wonderful view.

Since it is not yet time to plant sunflowers, the hill becomes a vast pineapple plantation as of the moment. I want to visit this park when it's time to harvest the pineapple fruit. It will surely be an awesome view to sea a lot of pineapples.

And when you walk a little further, you will sea man-made dinosaurs and dinosaur's nest. Tourist are not allowed to stay for more than five minutes on those nest because everyone should let the other tourists experience it too and take photos.

It's getting dark so we really have to go down because there are no lights on the way down the hill.

We went here last december so there is a mini christmas village that most people who celebrates christmas really love. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of the christmas village because we are already in a hurry to go home since we need to catch the jeepney or bus going to the town where we all live. But I am able to take one last snap of the light decors that hangs on the trees which makes the place look more lively at night.
