  • @ Blue Soil Hills
  • Sagada, Mountain Province, Philippines
  • The Blue Soil Hills is presumably one of Sagada’s best-kept privileged insights. It’s tucked inside the rocky landscapes of thousand old limestone. As its name proposes, it is a move of slopes in a beautiful shade of blackout blue no greater than a square kilometer encompassed by transcending pine trees.

    The plunge extended for not exactly a kilometer alongside delicate clay. A few pieces of the path indicated a few spots of blue soil. As we came nearer to our goal, the pale blue shade of the clay turned out to be increasingly conspicuous overwhelming the darker ones. To our pondering astonishment, Blue Soil Hills uncovered itself.

    Blue Soil Hills was otherworldly. It made an extraordinary difference against the standard pine imbued scene of Sagada. It resembled a lake mirroring the blue sky. Or on the other hand, a froth of pale blue mists spread in a pine woodland.

    The Blue Soil Hills is best visited in the early morning soon after dawn in Marlboro Hills.
