Mt. Ugo Traverse a guide to your first major climb.
Ang daan paakyat at pababa sa Bundok Ugo ang pinakamahabang nalakad ko sa buong buhay ko.

Do you still remember your first hike? Well, it's probably the same as I remember mine. How many times did you ask your Guide if you're almost there? How many more hours till we reach the summit?
