It’s been some time since I last passed through the famous Bitukang Manok segment – a very steep zigzag road section at the Quezon Natural Forest Park. A new, longer, safer diversion road has been constructed where all types of heavy vehicles now pass.

It was great news then when I learned that the old Bitukang Manok segment has been rehabilitated and is now passable albeit only for light vehicles. It was with much anticipation therefore that I looked forward to driving the southroad again – from Manila all the way to Tacloban City via the Maharlika Highway (also known as the Pan-Philippine Highway ) – a distance of like 1,000 kilometers. :)

We drove last week, my wife, Ludette and son, Marti and I and, yes, we passed through the steep Bitukang Manok.

At the pit stop for travelers, Quezon Natural Forest Park, Quezon, Philippines…
