Two more stops completed our Puerto Galera tour. After Tamaraw Falls, we were taken to Ponderosa Golf Club. This golf club is located at the side of Mt. Malisimbo overlooking White Beach and a portion of Batangas.
You can’t really go inside the club unless you’re a member but you can dine at the small restaurant outside. A Zip Line is under construction when we were there, so I guess it’s one of the activities you can do soon.
Since I don’t know how to play golf and I’m not planning to learn in the near future, it’s enough for me to admire and take in the view and the wind.
Next stop was the Mangyan Village, a village inhabited by 2,000 or more Iraya Mangyans, a native of Puerto Galera.
This village was aided by the Ayala Foundation more than ten years ago and now they have set up clinics, school and livelihood projects that made life better for the people who live in the village.
I think most, if not all, of the houses in the village have electricity in them.
I saw some villagers are making these pretty baskets too bad I didn’t bring any money when we went there.
