Glamping in Mayana, Jagna

Everything can be a bit too much these days. I just keep trying to avoid crowded spaces and there’s not much greenery in my sight.

So when my friend asked “Pabukid ta?”, we said yes without second thoughts and went off the next day. 😆

A road trip and mountain view was a much needed escape.

And where’s the best place to go but to Mayana, Jagna which is Bohol’s highest elevation?

We packed our bags with whatever might be needed – pasta, tea, camping gears, cook set and card games 😜!

The new glamping area we tried is in Mayana Highland Cafe located just above MUSFA Mayana Organic Farm a place famous in Bohol for strawberry picking.

We got there in the afternoon and just watched the mountain scenery as the sun sets.

It was so peaceful and full of fun conversations, swinging and some cafe snacks 🥰.

To us, it was a perfect way to spend an afternoon!

Here are few things to note if you want to camp there:

Food

The camping area is just next to the cafe and they have several options available like breakfast meals and snacks such as crepes, fries and others.

You can also cook your own food if you bring your own cookset – free of charge!

a PLACE TO WORK

Me and my friends work online so it was a lifesaver that they have decent wifi and a cozy cafe for working.

The calming view is a great plus!

TENTS

They provide ordinary tents as well as carpets to help with the cold. If you have weather-proof tents, best to bring it with you.

It’s a really cold place so make sure to bring a complete set of your sleeping gear as they are not provided for.

ACTIVITES

If you can wake up early, you can set a schedule with a guide to go trekking to the highest peak!

You can also explore the farm below and try strawberry picking too.

temperature

The place is really cold!😂 Well at least for my body who love warmth .

It was fogging early in the night until morning. It was so hard to wake up and work early 😆.
