Top 5 To Do In Foressa Mountain Town During The Weekends

Home buyers have a lot to consider when buying a home. There’s the location of the home and how accessible it is to business districts, commercial centers, essential establishments, and other places of interest. For investors in real estate, it’s the rate at which the land appreciates which, on its own, is affected by several factors like location and accessibility. While it’s true that these factors largely affect the quality of life of the prospective buyer, rarely does it give them the opportunity to have a fun and exciting adventure without having to leave the premises.

Imagine having a home that offers you the chance to experience an adventure once you take a step outside of your home. If you’re living alone, it can be an adventure of self-discovery and finding yourself. If you have a family, it’s a great opportunity to bond with your children and/ or spouse. At the end of the day, having these opportunities readily available to you not only constitutes a good investment, it’s something that’s going to directly impact your quality of life and those whom you consider to be family.

Foressa Mountain Town is AboitizLand’s residential development in the mountains in Balamban, Cebu. Apart from its sprawling green landscape and modern day master-planning, it also offers the chance to experience a vast expanse of thrilling terrains, deep forests, and soothing water features in the highlands.

With these mountain features in mind, the chance for a daring adventure is always right outside your doorstep. The opportunity to find yourself and/ or bond with your family and friends is always going to be there. The only question you need to ask yourself is how and when is this adventure going to take place? Here are a few things you can do in Foressa Mountain Town during the weekends.


Hiking is considered a hobby by many people because it provides a break from the mundane routine of urban life. It’s also considered a life-changing experience especially since you’re engaging your physical and spiritual self when you’re on the trail.

There are loads of benefits whenever you go hiking apart from just giving you a clear break from work. Physically, it’s an excellent opportunity to build stronger muscles and bones. It also helps to improve your sense of balance and your heart’s overall health. After all, moving at a higher elevation and rocky terrain at an extended range of time helps hone your overall physicality. Mentally, it can help you get back to your center. Studies have shown that being in the presence of nature while hiking can help improve your mental health.

Since Foressa Mountain Town sits along the peaceful mountains of Cansomoroy, Balamban, it’s an excellent place to go hiking in. The residential mountain development has its own hiking trail that you can take advantage of as a vecino of the area.

Trail Running

Running in itself is a very therapeutic activity. It helps release good endorphins that make you feel good and it also gives you a good cardiovascular workout. Given enough time and consistency, running can help improve your overall health.

Trail running, however, can be a tad more fun than regular running. Apart from the clear change of environment, you get other perks that only nature itself can provide. For instance, since you’re constantly running on different kinds of terrain, your brain gets engaged. You’re pushed to adjust to puddles, mud, rocks, moist foliage and other obstacles that are inherent in trail areas. Another clear benefit is just being in the presence of nature which, in itself is a therapeutic activity that helps improve your overall health. Also just being able to run in a forest makes you feel like you’re in an actual adventure – the nature of which should be left to your imagination, which in turn, is a form of mental exercise.

Having a hiking trail, it’s no surprise that Foressa Mountain Town is a go-to destination for people who want to experience trail running. Imagine living as a vecino in this residential mountain development and being able to do this on a regular basis.

Mountain Biking

Biking can be fun especially if you ride with friends. Apart from being a good cardiovascular workout, it’s also a great way to induce an adrenaline rush that can help you achieve that healthy dose of endorphins. Thing is, biking on the road might pose a little health risk not because of the vehicular hazards but more because of the emissions they release.

When you bike in the mountains however, you’re exposed to air that’s relatively cleaner, lessening the risk of getting heart and lung conditions. Given that the path isn’t as flat as a regular road’s, you’re challenged to adjust to the terrain. This allows you to strengthen your legs and, to some extent, your core. Just like how running and hiking in nature gives you a mental health boost, the same can be said when you bike in the mountains.

Foressa Mountain Town has a mountain bike trail that you and your friends can take advantage of on the weekends.

Bird Watching

What’s a less strenuous activity you can do while in the mountains? Birdwatching. Just being able to watch these wonderful creatures take flight or interact with their natural habitat is a therapeutic experience in itself and can teach you a thing or two about life in general.

It might seem like a boring activity given that you wait for birds to pass by while holding a pair of binoculars, but it’s actually more fun and beneficial than it seems. For one, the Philippines has a total of 731 species, of which 227 are endemic and 5 have been introduced by humans. So you’ll basically have a large catalog of birds to identify and watch. Secondly, apart from transportation fees and equipment, it’s not as financially demanding as most hobbies. Lastly, being in the presence of nature and hearing their chirps can be a calming experience.

At the end of the day, just witnessing these birds in their natural habitat is a lesson in ecology and how everything is connected. Foressa Mountain Town, being located in the mountains of Cansomoroy, Balamban is an excellent place to get this hobby started.


If you want a more rugged and authentic experience of nature, going camping might be a good idea. Being able to rough it out in the forest and set up tents can seem like a chore, but that’s the point of camping – experiencing nature as it is.

Just like birdwatching, it helps you make a connection between yourself and the world in a more spiritual manner. Just being able to experience how to cook or sleep on the ground with nothing but a sleeping bag can become a humbling experience and can really help you be more aware of who you are and can sometimes provoke thoughts of purpose and existence.

Foressa Mountain Town has a camping site that you can take advantage of during the weekends. As a vecino, you can choose to go camping with yourself or with family and friends whenever you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday modern life.

If you’re looking at investing in a residential mountain development, Foressa Mountain Town might be for you. Being a vecino of the area, you can expect the first glint of sun to peek through your window when you start your day with the prospect of a new adventure.

Your need for creature comforts need not take a back seat either. Being the residential enclave of West Cebu Estate, an Aboitiz-owned integrated economic center known as the country’s shipbuilding capital, means easy access to commercial establishments such as groceries, cafes, restaurants, among others. You can rest assured that modern conveniences are just a short drive away, while reveling in the majestic wonders of nature on your own mountain sanctuary in Foressa Mountain Town.
