The highest bridge in the Philippines, the new Agas-Agas bridge crosses a deep ravine in the Eastern Visayas region of the country. Funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency as part of the Philippine-Japan Friendship Highway Rehabilitation Project, the huge prestressed concrete beam bridge has 246 foot (75 mtr) and 241 foot (73.5 mtr) high piers.

The scenic location inspired the highway department to build a viewing deck on top of one of the piers in the middle of the bridge as well as parking areas on both sides with comfort rooms to rest. Future plans include the possibility of a bungee jump operation from the span.  Read More:  http://www.highestbridges.com/wiki/index.php?title=Agas-Agas_Bridge

There are several resorts to stay for a vacation in Biliran. But I chose to stay in Agta Beach Resort. It is located in Talahid Beach in Almeria, Biliran and is the jump-off to several island hopping destinations in the province that includes Sambawan, Maripipi, Dalutan, Capinahan and Higatangan. It also has an easy access to diving spots that makes it a haven for underwater adventure enthusiasts. Agta Beach Resort has a close proximity to other tourist spots including the Iyusan Rice Terraces and Ulan-ulan Falls.

Alto Peak

Also known as Alto Peak, Mt. Amindiwin (or Aminduen to locals) stands 1332 MASL at Barangay Cabintan in Ormoc, Leyte. The highest in Eastern Visayas, the Mt. Amindiwin traverse is a refreshing trek through moderately sloped and sometimes flat terrain before the steep ascent to the summit from its foot. A challenge from the usual dayhike itinerary is the inclusion of a traverse to and via Lake Janagdan (1120 MASL). The lake is one of the three Ormoc water bodies frequented by tourists. The others being the bigger Lake Danao (700 MASL) and the less known Lake Kasudsuran (820 MASL).  Read More:  http://greedypeg.org/leyte/Alto-Peak.html
