BALETE TREE of Canlaon CIty | Negros Oriental


After our swimming in the cold spring of barangay Mailaba, we headed in another tourist attraction, the Balete Tree according to the botanists of Siliman University the tree was estimated about 1328 years old and declared as the oldest tree in the whole island of Negros.






The Balete Tree, also known as Lunok in the Visayan dialect was located in barangay Lumapao, Canlaon City, Negros Oriental. The local people told us that every night theirs a lot of fireflies fly in the trunk of this tree. Many of us have known this kind of tree because of the mystery behind it.


Filipino people always believe in the belief of the traditional way and always saying (Tabi Tabi Po) its just like asking a permission before doing anything  like touching softly the branches or walking around the tree and checking it closely. In that way the spirit  can't cause you a harm or illness and because of that story, no one ever attempts to cut some of their branches.


How to get there

From Bacolod City take bus in the South Terminal and look a signboard en route Canlaon.

From the city center of Canlaon take a motorbike to Balete tree fare is 70 per way.
