    Default Mountain road above Dauin

    Has anyone driven up any of the mountain roads that head up towards Talinas from the Bacong/Dauin area? Are these roads paved or dirt? I am specifically interested in the homes that are above 500 meters. Do the homes have electricity and phone lines? How long does it take to get up past 500 meters from the national highway? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Ive been up a few. its surprising how far some to these kids walk to and from school. Its like the old joke. "we walked 2 miles to school up hill" in this case its true. Ive seen power lines but weather the houses have electricity I don't know.the roads are a little concrete a little dirt and depending on the rain is how bad they are.

    Suggest u take a bike and see for yourself. I live in Dauin

    The road from beautiful downtown Bacong up the hill is paved or about a kilometer, then a bumpy dirt road all the way up. The road from the highway in San Miguel is mixed paved and dirt for about two kilometers up the hill the dirt. Take a drive up and check out the area.

    I am trying to determine if it is livable and drivable up higher towards Talinas. I really prefer cooler weather and was wanting to get an idea of how long it takes to get up towards the drivable end of these roads?

    The last two days we have been up two rds around dauin,once up to Baslay and above and once to edc dauin which you can now drive all the way To! The roads are rough most of the way but there are concrete stretches. So much cooler up,there pat 26 deg at 800 m,just depends if you can handle,the rds!

    We have been up most of the roads to the end in years past. Mostly very steep and dirt farther up, passable when dry, but get pretty unpassable when wet. Definitely good 4X4 or dirt bike territory.
