Dalaguete may be more famous for its vegetables along with the highest peak of Cebu, but it is gradually becoming popular among nature-loving travelers. It is one of the towns in the south where eco-tourism is gradually taking root. The town has a reforestation area that has become a haven for biodiversity. In addition, there are still some less explored areas in the mountainous areas of the town. This can potentially put Dalaguete at the forefront of eco-tourism in southern Cebu together with Aloguinsan.
The Lagnason Creek or the Lagnason River is a somewhat shallow yet raging waterway found in Dalaguete. It features large boulders, slippery river banks, and waters that appear to be deep. Trekking the creek starts at the Cawayan Sumbria Bridge and is advisable for physically fit explorers.
The Lagnason Creek is situated in a hidden valley in Dalaguete. If you want to take pictures of the flying foxes in the area, you should not use the flash of the camera since these creatures are not used to sudden bursts of bright light. The flash of your camera may cause them to become rowdy. You should also avoid getting too close to the flying foxes and maintain a good distance from them. It’s best if you will use a pair of binoculars or a camera with a telephoto lens.
