Hiking Adventures #30: Mt. Balingkilat Night Trek Traverse to Nagsasa Cove

I've read an article from about a girl conquering Mt. Balingkilat and telling why we should put it on our bucketlist. I was convinced and share the page on Facebook. It was noticed by my friend so he told me that he will set a climb in Mt. Balingkilat.

Hiking Adventures #26: Mt. Arayat Traverse Dayhike

Mt. Arayat

I've always wanted to hike Mt. Arayat because I always see the mountain every time I go North and pass through NLEX. I know the view from above would be great as no other mountains near Arayat. Finally, I've got a chance to scale this mountain and do a traverse dayhike.

In search for the Sea of Clouds, I didn't think twice on joining in this climb set by MMS member, Ed Velasquez. According to some blogs that I've read, Mt. Amuyao has a greater chance of having sea of clouds as compared to Mt. Pulag and other mountains in the Philippines. Since Ed is a hardcore mountaineer, he decided to make it a Reverse Traverse (Batad, Ifugao to Barlig, Mountain Province).

Hiking Adventures #24: Mt. Sembrano, Pililia, Rizal

#NoHikeFebraury is my campaign for the month of February because aside from I climbed twice last January, for sure there will be a lot of singles out there that will try to climb mountains to forget what they've been through about their lovelife. So I got really excited when March got in to hike again and I chose Mt. Sembrano for a dayhike.

Hiking Adventures #23: Mt. Ayaas Dayhike - My 5th Mountain in Montalban, Rizal

I've been an avid climber of Rizal mountains or the Sierra Madre not just because it's near in Manila. It really offers a lot, from exciting trails to great views. One of the best town in Rizal that offers a lots of nature tripping is the town of Rodriguez (formerly Montalban) where there are 5 mountains open for mountain climbing. I already scaled Pamitinan, Binacayan, Hapunang Banoi and Sipit Ulang, and one more left, which is Ayaas.

Hiking Adventures #22: Pico De Loro Dayhike - The Revenge Climb

Now it's 2016! Another year to be filled with adventures and memories. 2015 was really a great year for me because almost all of my plans has been accomplished like climbing mountains every month (and sometimes twice a month). Another reason what made 2015 a great year is because I landed a new job.

Hiking Adventures #20: Mt. Ulap (Philex Ridge) Night Trek

One of the newly opened mountains last Q3 of 2015 is Mt. Ulap also known as Philex Ridge. And because of its trail and the iconic Gungal rock, many hikers were attracted. My hiking buddies set a climb for this mountain and decided to try something unusual, which is to do a night trek.
