Hiked to: Mt. Napulauan

Saturday to Sunday
May 20-21, 2017

Mt. Napulauan is a familiar mountain because my friends have hiked it before. Aside from that and it being very far from Manila, I didn’t know much about it. So when Khat told me that we’ll be hiking it, I had no idea what was in store. Continue reading

Looking for a quick dayhike on a Sunday, Khat saw an event for a mountain I’ve never heard of. Mt. Taronton in Infanta, Quezon, supposedly sits 1234masl and has recently opened.

Cuyapo to Tarak ridge, I looked for an available slot right away.

Hiked to: Cawag Pentalogy

Sunday
March 5, 2017

If there’s one mountain aside from the knife-edge trilogy that has intimidated me with its reputation, it has to be Mt. Balingkilat. Reading online blogs about this particular mountain has given me some doubt on my ability to climb it. From dry infernos in the summer to raging river crossings in the rainy season, the reputation of this mountain is noteworthy. So when I was invited to do a Cawag hexalogy that included this mountain, I gladly accepted to see what the fuss was all about.
