A small town at the foot of Mt. Banahaw in western Quezon, Dolores is home to numerous religious sects and mystics inspired by the mountain’s reputation as a sacred place. Waterfalls and caves are hailed as pilgrimage sites that devotees strive to reach as part of the quest to achieve spiritual purification. Visitors who just want a quiet place for a relaxing weekend can head to Bangkong Kahoy, a private farm and retreat center nestled between Banahaw and Mt. Cristobal.
