Random Clicks: Kaybiang Tunnel, Maragondon
This is a late post.
Before the start of the first regular work-day of the new year, my family and I went to Kaybiang Tunnel in Maragondon, Cavite. It is a new road that leads to Nasugbu, Batangas. This is not a regular road-tunnel, though... it is the first in Cavite. It boasts a spectacular view of the South China Sea and the mountainous side of Cavite. When it was formally opened last year by President Noynoy Aquino, it opened a new gate for adventure seekers like me.
It is around 40 minutes drive from our house. There is no traffic. When we got there, there were a bunch of motorcycle riders going to and fro the tunnel. There were also families who pull over from time to time to take pictures of the magnificent view.
This photo was taken halfway through the tunnel. My son enjoyed screaming and hearing his echo.
That's me. Obviously, the tunnel is 96 kilometers away from the Rizal Park in Manila. This photo was taken from the Nasugbu side of the tunnel.
A little statistics here, the vertical clearance of the tunnel is 4.85 meters. How amazing are those lush trees?
The downhill zigzag road will make any nature-loving person enjoy the view. On the left is the mountain and on the right is the sea.
That's the sea I am talking about. And that's me breaking-in my new iPhone 5c. Haha!
You can see from afar the blue water and white sand waiting for us.
How much did we spend for this trip? Six hundred pesos only for gasoline. What is the reward? This view!
