Max elivation in Bantayan island is 29 meters, so hard to get nice view from that.
So where ever this place is it's not in Bantayan island. It look nice tough.

Stopped at Dalton Pass in Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya. The views were breathtaking. There is a minimal fee but I don't remember if it was P50 per vehicle or P10 per person. There is a restroom, 2 stalls in the Ladies room. There are about six sheds where you can rest. The road to the pass is only one way so if there is another vehicle coming from the other direction one has to back up. Clean surroundings. There is a zipline which we didn't do.

Dropped by Dalton Pass Shrine on the way up north. One must pay 15 pesos community tax that will serve for the upkeep of the park. You can actually drive just below the upper view deck. From here, one can see the majestic view of the mountains & the Nueva Vizcaya ~ Nueva Ecija boundary marker at a vantage point. Several picnic tables are on site. Overall, this is a very good pit stop while passing Santa Fe.

We often do stopovers at this site everytime we travel to Cagayan. After 6 hours long drive from Manila, its time to stretch, relax & have coffee. Our latest trip was 28 March 2015. Dalton Pass / Balete Pass is a historical & scenic attraction that shouldn't be overlooked by any traveler.

Historically, it lay witness to the mop-up operations made by the Chinese's Overseas Wartime Hsuekan Militia (COWHM) who fought alongside with Allied liberating armies - American troops & Filipino guerillas, against retreating Japanese forces at Santa Fe, Nueva Vizcaya. This later led to the surrender of Japanese General Yamashita in September 1945 ending World War II. In memoriam & as remembrance for the 112 comrades-in-arms who died in action, a Chinese and Japanese shrine was erected 7th of May 2001 between the 2 view decks.

Dalton Pass/ Balete pass is the highest point where a traveler can have access / pass through the Sierra Mountain Range- considered as the largest mountain range in Luzon & in the Philippines. Geographically, it is the boundary of Nueva Ecija & Nueva Vizcaya. It is also the gateway to the Region 2 provinces. The 2 view decks are located under the Region 2 marker and at the upper cliff. There is an uphill paved road leading to the 3 sites and very accessible to tourists & light vehicles. Once there, you get a good vista of the Sierra Madre mountain range, Good for photo ops specially before sunrise & foggy days. Climate is very cool. There are restrooms but don't expect too much. Recently, a community tax of P15.00 per person was collected for maintenance purposes (before it was free). This is good development because the place needs to be totally preserved & maintained, considering the location is very remote. When we were there, slight improvements can be seen. At the small roadside clearing, there is a fruit & vegetable stand (harvests from the mountains), a souvenir stall, and a countryside restaurant that serves hot coffee & meals.

This shrine devides 2 towns of Nueva ecija and Viscaya. For adventurers, a separator of city and nature. From the peak itself explains it all. Natural wonders, scenes and so relaxing. ...
