Sidetrip after our year end climb 2012


     After our 3 mountains Mt. Malipunyo, Mt. Manabu and Mt. Maculot before the year end sir Dennis guided us and using his motorbike going to Marian Orchard for about 20-30minutes of drive.
please visit my post: 3 mountains traverse our YEAR END CLIMB.

     Marian Orchard is a park use for prayers, friends and family bonding, meditation and retreat house. It also hosts recollections and wedding reception. This place perfect place for Holyweeks

     This place located at Barangay Malabanan Balete, Batangas near and adjacent of Lipa City. This park you can see a lot of different colorful flowers, animals and trees bearing fruits but prohibited to pick it. You can also see the statue of apostles of Jesus, Saints and the Station of the Cross.

     The main highlight of this park the Sacred Heart Tower which is a replica of Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer, when you climb the tower, you can see a view of Taal Volcano. The place where you can unwind away from the city and can you feel the solemnity. sceneries were inspired by beauty religious shrines in Italy and other European countries.

Went here two or three years ago, way before I started blogging. My favorite place in Lipa so far - colorful flowers + Greek- like architecture. Maybe I should write about it too. Or maybe I'll go back first. =)
