Experience Peace at Tibo Highlands…


Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge theme: Peaceful 

Have you ever been to a place where in you’ve experienced a taste of serenity?

I was able to relish a peaceful experience when I went home last Christmas. I was able to savor the beauty of lush green surroundings and the breath of fresh air. Everything just seems so paradisiacal that it gives you the soothing comfort and tranquility whenever you gaze at it.

Tibo,Panganiban Catanduanes,Philippines.

Looking into this endless grassland is like a stress therapy wherein you can breathe out what’s inside of your system, shout all your grievances and sigh harder to release all your blues.

The ever idyllic mountains will provide a relaxing view that you will let yourself be enamored by the solace it brings.

And the ocean just beneath is quite of an eye catcher with its turquoise blue waters that exudes a timeless spirit of peace.

Tibo is a barangay of the Philippine municipality Panganiban (Payo) in the province Catanduanes in Bicol Region which is part of the Luzon group of islands. The municipality Panganiban (Payo) with a population of about 9,290 and its 23 barangays belongs to the partly urban areas in the Philippines

If only time permits then you’ll wish to be here every day to harbor its undying beauty and serenity.

  11. I’m in awe over these shots John! This looks like a great place to enjoy a peaceful retreat. The vibrant colors are a sight to behold. Your “home” is a bit like paradise on earth. I think it’s a tropical hidden gem that you should keep a secret. I guess it’s too late for that now! We are booking our flights now! Ha! Ha! :)

    Where is this place looks familiar to me I grow up in this area, the 3rd to 5th picture looks like our place in Bantukaw. May I know this place.

    • Hi Miss Ginaline,
      I’m a native of this place but I haven’t heard of Bantukaw maybe my Mom knows it.The view was in front of Tibo Community School where in you can see the vast ocean and the mountain as grassland for cows, a sort of breathtaking view.The two other photos are situated along the road going to Tibo…I guess you’re from Payo too..I have searched for you on fb and I found out we graduated at the same school..CAIC..I spent my High school years there.BTW thanks for dropping by..
