Anyone visiting Northern Negros or Bacolod with time to spare could be interested in Patag. Although starting to become touristy (weekends) its still not yet fully developed.

Generally its known as the last stronghold here for the Japanese during the war how ever there is far more to offer. Its about an hour scenic drive from Bacolod, elevated and nice an cool. Quite a few water falls with nice trails leading to them. As is often the case one is compelled to have a guide, it costs of course. Still the area is clean and tracks maintained so its worth it. Walks range from 15 minutes to 2 hours. Most relatively easy with just a few  steep areas.   The bush is really quite magnificent.

There is now numerous small inexpensive coffee shops which offer expensive views over the valleys, also road side vendors have very cheap fresh fruit in abundance.  One up market resort is operating and a few low key camping grounds, none of these are ostentatious. All pretty much unnoticeable from road. Personally would advise to stay in Bacolod as its so close by. Will enclose a couple of pics of a nearby water fall we visited. It was a Saturday and we had it to ourselves. 

Unfortunately the war museum is no longer operating.
