Mt. Balungao Hot and Cold Springs Resort (Balungao Adventure)

It was a day after New Year when my siblings and I went to Mt. Balungao located at Balungao, Pangasinan. People flock there because of it's cold and hot springs and lately because of the adventure it offers like zip line, hiking, trail walking and ATV driving. Thus, its known now as Balungao Adventure. To be honest, I'm not interested in the zip line because I'm chicken when it comes to that. I'm scared of heights. What I want to try is their hot spring pool. It's just an hour drive from our place. Hubby didn't come with us and opted to stay home. He's becoming homebody lately. Maybe age is catching up on him, lol!

When we reached the place, we paid the entrance fee which was 50 pesos per pax and 25 for children. The place was so crowded and there were no more available sheds for rent. It's a good thing hubby did not come or he might went back home right away. So what we did, we just went inside and found a shady place to sit. We brought with us some foods for lunch and we ate first before going to the pool. I cooked chicken adobo and ginisang upo and my youngest brother cooked ginisang sayote. We enjoyed the foods though we were just sitting down on a cemented pavement. We look like squatters, lol!. The resort is surrounded with lots of trees and the green scenery is so refreshing to the eyes. There were quite a few people doing the zip line and seems like they were enjoying it.

Little brother and his daughter went to the pool first and my sis-in-law and I just watched the crowd. When I got tired watching, I went to dip in the hot spring pool full of people. At first it really felt hot but after a few minutes it felt so good. My other brother joined us later. There was this Japanese guy who really enjoyed staying in the hot pool and remained there longer than most of the people. I only stayed there for about 20 minutes and when it got so crowded, my 2 brothers and I decided to leave the pool. There were 2 hot pools but both were full of people. I could have enjoyed it better and stayed longer if it's not so crowded. I wanna go there again next time during weekdays just for the hot pool and I would take hubby with me.
