This must be your last day on the road, at least for this journey. Thank you Lord for all the guidance, safety and protection. Hoorray!
I don’t know where your destination to Mindanao will be, but from Lipata Ferry Terminal, Surigao, we are heading to Davao – Bukidnon route. Hence, the shortest path would be to pass by these provinces:
- (Agusan del Norte) Cabadbaran > Bayugan > Prosperidad > (Compostela Valley) Monkayo > Nabunturan > (Davao del Norte) Tagum > Panabo > Davao City > Bukidnon
- According to Google Map, it takes 8 hours & 15 min (419.4 km) via Pan-Philippine Hwy/AH26 to reach Davao City. And, again realistically, I’d usually add +1 hour for every 100km (taking account the road traffic, pit-stop, etc) so that makes 13 hours. Speed at 80 – 100 km/h. The road going from Tagum to Davao City is busy so I would add 3 more hours.
- Bukidnon from Davao City, is about 2 h 30 min (111.7 km) via Davao – Buda National Hwy/Davao – Bukidnon Hwy/Dologon – Busco – Quezon Rd — during at night though.
- Enchanted River, Siargao, Tinuy-an falls, Samal Island
