Townscape: Dalaguete | Obong Spring

Backpacking with a Book

Aside from the renowned Osmeña Peak, Obong Spring is yet another local attraction of Dalaguete.

Obong Spring is quite accessible even bus conductors know the existence of the place. Unplanned travel is as good as the prepared one—sometimes even better.

For the nonlocals, there is an inexpensive entrance fee of P5.00.

An advice from the curious: bring some food and enjoy the bounty under the dakit canopy.

Bring a friend or friends with you.

Obong Spring, contrary to its name, is no freshwater, it is more of a suba—with water quite insipid, impassable for freshwater. Since it is a suba, one can find varied fish species. They would swarm around for food morsels.

Few meters away, if one follows the watercourse, one can enjoy Dalaguete beach.

    What is in Obong Spring? Is it a hot spring same as in Hidden Valley laguna or cold springs in Camiguin? It is a lovely place to go to. And I am curious about the temperature of the water. This is the first time for me to hear about this place. Great photos by the way! Thanks!
