Hearing stories of the Mt. Pinatubo Circuit from friends, I’ve been interested in the place since way back. It just never became a priority and with most hikes taking place at the same time as other hikes, Pinatubo was a distant dream. So when the Pinatubo-master himself, Sir Jherry Guiao announced a new trail run along that route, I didn’t have second thoughts.

Tarak ridge is one of my all time favorite mountains to hike because of its simplicity. It’s what others say is the gateway mountain to major climbs with its 4/9 difficulty; not too hard, but still has enough of a challenge. So when I got news of a new trail connecting Mt. Cuyapo to Tarak ridge, I looked for an available slot right away.
