Day 1 Jump-off to campsite. It was a long story of how we got to this mountain. We have no plans of climbing. It just ticks on our mind after all those bus and jeepney rides around Ilocos. After we wasted the whole day looking for a possible guide, we found ourselves lying on a bamboo bed as we finished our...
Heading to Iloilo or Western Visayas? Fancy for a day hike or overnight camping? If yes, head to Napulak. Tigbanaba and Baggay are the 2 major jumping-off points. I always favored Baggay trail as the entry point due to its abundant water source. This is my favorite mountain in the province of Iloilo due to its accessibility and affordability. At...
This is the second highest mountain in Bicol region with an elevation of 2,000 masl and is potentially active stratovolcano located in the Province of Camarines Sur. It became a natural park in June 20, 2002 by virtue of Proclamation Number 214. I was in Bicol for 2 weeks after I got laid off from my job in a psychiatric...
Seven years after we scaled the summits Kitanglad and Dulang-dulang, I always dreamt of visiting these two mountains to complete the Bukidnon mountain ranges. All these became possible with the efforts of my 2 good couchsurfer friends Ian and Troy. We planned to celebrate the Christmas eve at these 2 summits but unfortunately, the guides weren’t available so we...
Such a refreshing flight from Singapore to Bandung. Haven't noticed that some of the guests of the flights were also attending the event until we picked up our luggage. The first night was to welcome participants. Had a nice dinner and discussed the plan of scaling 6 mountains in 6 days. That was my second time to join the...
Our fourth day in Spain was well spent with the ascent at Pico Aneto, the third highest mountain in Spain at 3404 masl and is the highest mountain in the Pyrenees.  This is one of the mountains I’ve been that never requires any climb permit. The cold temperature outside the apartment didn’t hinder us from making this dream into reality....
At a towering height of 1315masl, Tres Marias is a popular destination for nature lovers visiting Biliran. The highest mountain in Biliran Island. One of my favorite in the Philippines due to its stunning landscape. Visited here twice in 2011 and 2012. I still have this desire to come back next time. It was a relief when we reached the...
At a towering height of 2117 masl, Mt. Madjaas (also called Madia-as) is one of the 3 mountains in Panay trilogy often visited by adventure seekers locally and internationally. Madia-as means "high" in Kinaray-a, a widely spoken dialect in Antique Province. It was a dream for me and when I got the chance to be there, I never wasted...
The weather was gloomy on the way to the island. When I say, I want to climb in that mountain, chances are 99.9%. Two months ago, on the way to Alapasco Lake in Batad, I took a glimpse of this mountain perched on the island, caught my attention, and research was done. Contact numbers were obtained and casual conversations...
