Kapatagan Valley in Davao Del Sur

It was a day ago when I had a chance to visit Kapatagan Valley along with my partner. For the curious travelers,  this highland is a popular adventurous destination located at the foot of Mount Apo in Davao Del Sur.

Similar to Baguio, Bukidnon, Lake Sebu and Marawi, this place is also blessed with cool weather but unlike the other places I mentioned, this place is still not crowded.
At Mt. Apo Civet Coffee Farm, they feed the civet cats with coffee cherries then the stomach proteolytic enzymes of these animals seep into the beans, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. … The low-quality beans are discarded and the best ones are roasted. The finished products are then packed and sealed
Tourists can have sightseeing of Mount Apo that is known to be the highest mountain in the Philippines. People residing in this place can be seen busy with vegetable cultivation and coffee farming since it is the only means of employment for the majority of people in this area. Visitors can also enjoy Lake Rosario โ€“ a lake located at the foot of Mount Apo that gives a breathtaking view and total relaxation.
