GETTING THERE . . .

BEDIAO ROUTE


                There is a regular trip from Dumaguete to Magsaysay, Dauin.  You can either walk the remaining 2 kilometers from Magsaysay to PNOC drilling site in Bediao or hire a jeep which would bring you directly to Bediao.
                This route is considered to be the easiest and the main spots includes the Nacolon peak (the highest peak – 1,800 masl) and Lake Yagumyum. It takes 4 hours from Bediao to Talinis peak.

TIMBAO ROUTE
                There is a regular jeep from Dumaguete to Timbao, Bacong.  The trail is considered to be the hardest but the shortest route.  It only takes 3 hours to reach Talinis peak. It’s the same trail used if you passed through the PT&T route in Bongbong, Valencia.
APOLONG ROUTE

                You can take a jeep from Dumaguete to Valencia.  Upon reaching Valencia, you can ride a jeep bound for Apolong or hire a jeep which would take you to Casaroro.
                The Apolong route is considered to be moderately difficult.  Before reaching Talinis peak, main spots are Kaipuhan, Tutoy Dalaga and Lake Yagumgum.  It is estimated to take seven hours to reach the peak.

LUNGA ROUTE

                You can take a jeep from Dumaguete to Valencia.  Since there’s no regular trip in going to Lunga, you can hire jeepneys up to Upper Lunga.
                 This route can also be considered difficult and challenging since it is the longest route in going to the Talinis peak which would take a maximum of 10 to 12 hours. Major tourist spots along the way are Dakong Sapa, Dakong Datag, Kaipuhan,Camp Vendiola, Tutoy Dalaga, and Lake Yagumyom. PT&T route is taken in going down from the Talinis peak.
