The Haunted Balete Drive of QC and the Ghost of the White Lady
Balete Drive in Quezon City, Philippines has become known for its paranormal phenomena and is considered one of the most haunted places in the Philippines.
When looking for haunted places in the Philippines, the selection is limited to places like Fort Santiago, Clark Air Base Hospital and some may even stretch to say the Hanging Coffins of Sagada are haunted, but one of the most notable is the haunted Balete Drive.
The street was named Balete Drive after the Balete trees that previously lined the two-lane street, but its real claim to fame is the ghost of the White Lady that is said to haunt it.
Referred to by locals as ‘QC’, Quezon City is home to one of the most common ghosts in the world, a White Lady.
Though there are many urban legends as to what causes a White Lady (or Lady in White), but the most common seems to be accidental death, murder or suicide.
White Lady legends are found in many countries around the world, reportedly seen in rural areas and associated with local legends of tragedy.
The White Lady of Balete Drive has been seen quite frequently and is said to be the ghost of a woman who was raped there (and we assume died). AHistoryOfMystery have been there to investigate, but despite numerous reported of a White Lady hitchhiking on the side of the road and even getting in people’s vehicles, we were unable to find any traces of her.
