5. Food trip
No travel adventure is complete without food. Residents of Talim Island have homegrown tasty treats. If you want some native rice cakes, check out the locals in Brgy. Tabon and Sapang. Homemade halo-halo is available in Brgy. Janosa, located just beside the barangay hall, while milky soft bread is the pride of a bakeshop in Brgy. Bombong.
4. Mt. Tagapo
This is one of the main attractions on the island. It’s a two-hour trek with a promise of a breathtaking view of the provinces of Quezon, Laguna, Cavite, and the famed Manila skyline. You can pitch a tent and spend the night atop Mt. Tagapo. Just make sure you register and inform the base camp and the local barangay of your itinerary. The take-off point for the trek is at Brgy. Janosa.
The lake abounds with tilapia, bangus, kanduli, ayungin and other freshwater fish. Don’t hesitate to ask around and inquire which banca owners are willing to give you a boat ride to the fishing ground.
