WS: Eden Nature Park, Davao City, Philippines...

A mountain resort located at 3,000 feet above sea level, Eden Nature Park is 95% human-made! It is a great model of how humans can re-create nature and rebuild a lost environment.

Discovered sometime in 1971, the resort used to be a logged-over area covered only by a blanket of wild grass. Its potential was, however, readily seen by the owners as the property provided an imposing view of Davao City and the Davao Gulf.

Not long after, terraces were carved out of the mountain slope, and thousands of pine tree seedlings were planted. As the pine trees grew it created canopies, allowing other trees and plants to grow and creating a secondary forest. Today, there are over 100,000 pine trees spread in about 80 hectares, providing a refreshing backdrop to the various attractions in Eden Nature Park.

Getting There:

* From Manila to Davao by plane either Cebu Pacific, Air Philippines, Philippines Airline(PAL) it only takes 1 and half hour.

* Eden Nature Park is located in Davao City, a one-and-a-half-hour ride by plane down south from Manila. Travel time from the Davao airport to Eden Nature Park is approximately one hour. If taking off from Davao City proper, travel southwards to Toril District.
