This is one of my few backlog blog entries, for my Sept backpack trip. Ligñon Hill (pronounced as "Linyon"), is another prominent landform in the city located behind the Legazpi Airport Tower and beside the Albay Wildlife Park. Aside from the Majestic view of Mayon Volcano standing serenely behind it, this hill is one of the first landmarks that greet visitors upon stepping down from an airplane. This hill stands 156 meter (511 feet) tall.

The best time to ascend the ligñon hill is at early morning just before sunrise, while the air is cool. Visitors have the opportunity to witness the morning sun rise up from the Albay Gulf and cast its golden rays on the city below. Early morning is also the best time to view Mayon Volcano since it is usually in all its naked glory at this time of day. An alternative is the sunset or evening walk up the hill where one can see the sparkling city lights sprawled below and enjoy the cool breeze from the ocean.
|Ligñon Hill offers|
Although they were many offers that is around the hill, that by using a habal-habal, a single motorcycle you could do that also just for P800 only. But due to some financial reasons, we rather choice to do zipline adventure just for P300 back and forth, 1st is superman style and 2nd is the usual one. But if you try to do zipline with just the usual way by sitting position it just cost P200.
Here are some of our pictures from our zipline adventures:

How to Get to Ligñon Hill?
From the airport: Turn right to Magayon Drive (you will pass through a private subdivision). Turn left at the junction with Bogtong Road and proceed until you reach the tennis courts, just before the gate to the Albay Wildlife Park. You may start your trek up the hill at the entrance (near the tennis courts). You can also drive your vehicle up the hill.
From Legazpi Port: A Legazpi-Daraga Loop 1 jeepney will take you directly to the foot of the hill.
From Daraga: Take a tricycle from the centro to Tagas and ask the drive to drop you off at the tennis courts.
