Cari amici, oggi, vi presento il Forest Camp. Il campo forestale è un paradiso verde lungo il fiume, una valle punteggiata di alberi tropicali. Un’immersione nella natura e una fuga in uno scenario incantevole. Per scoprirlo, leggiamo la nostra Len e I suoi “Profumi di Oriente”.
The Forest Camp is a resort with 2.5 hectares of nature at its best, a valley under a canopy of tropical, indigenous forest trees. It is located 11.5 Kilometers (6 Miles) of paved road west of Dumaguete City, in the Philippines. 20 minutes is all it takes to reach paradise; away from the noise and pollution of city life.
The Forest Camp has a river passing through its landscape with cascading sound blending perfectly with the welcoming songs of birds and applause of leaves. Enhancing the scenery is its constantly cool ambiance being 800 feet above sea level. Indeed, it is one of the main attractions of Valencia, Negros Oriental.
Sticking to its natural beauty concept, it has 9 cold spring swimming pools designed to appear like natural lagoons formed by the river.
Inside is a 90-meter zip line that crosses the river and over the swimming pools, parallel to a hanging bridge. It is the safest and shortest zip line in the world! It also has a 30-foot climbing wall and a 25 by 25-meter skate bowl for modern exercise enthusiasts.
To fully appreciate Forest Camp, it is best to spend the night in its cosy modern native cottages. The resort has rooms for families, big groups, and couples. It also has camping areas where guests can pitch tents and has hammock houses for backpackers to sleep swinging.
One doesn’t only come to Forest Camp to unwind but also to dine. It has a restaurant that serves delicious Filipino dishes that can be served anywhere in the resort.
Now let the dancing, singing, and talking “sweet nothings” along the river or around the bonfire complete the unique experience that would last a lifetime.
It’s more fun in the Philippines.
