I STARTED THIS JOURNEY WITH NO IDEA what Suyo town has to offer. But I have heard about the Suyo Mountain Resort from a common friend who lives there and happens to be studying here in Vigan. When I was still a campus journalist back in college, my senior editors wanted me to go to Suyo and feature their coffee plantation as an industry. Anyway, my trip to Suyo was an accident.
THE AIR IS ALSO COOL! BRING SOME jackets, long-sleeves or sweat shirts because you will need it. This is the first time I saw a highway with this kind of scenery so don't think I'm over-hyping the place because this is really what I felt the first time I traversed this road. A motorbike stroll along this serene Mountain Trail made me realize it was a blessing being able to experience the wonders made by God! Bessang Pass in Cervantes, the highest elevation of any highway system in Ilocos Sur.
In Brgy. Man-atong is a municipal resort. Sadly we were unable to get inside because an event was going on. You have to step onto several stairs to get to the resort. It is located atop a hill.
