Mount Hambubuyog News
Together with my outdoor buddies, workmates, bloggers and strangers, we made our way to the relatively not-so-well known but beautiful highlands of Ginatilan, Mt. Hambubuyog. The objective I set for myself for this climb/hike are: test our new tents, visit a place I have never camped or visited before, meet new people, physical fitness, stress relief while enjoying the wonders & beauty of nature!
The town of Ginatilan is about a 4-hour ride, and costs around Php120 each one-way, from Cebu City proper from the South Bus Terminal. There are three ways to access these beautiful highlands fom G ...
There's a relatively unknown mountain in the southern part of Cebu that I never heard of – Mt. Hambubuyog in the municipality of Ginatilan, Cebu. Mt. Bee, as we fondly call it, is a humble 820 MASL mountain peak and home to the Divine Mercy Chapel. Every year on Holy Week, pilgrims gather around the peak to commemorate the Lenten season. The narrow road is ideal for motorcycles (habal-habal) but it looked like a larger vehicle could also pass by. This climb happened recently on August 13, 2016 and I pray that my memory serves me right in the detailed account of this trek.
Admittedly, I wa ...
The rage of the storm does not hinder wandering souls to have another checks on their bucket list. Mt. Hambubuyog is definitely one of a kind!

We had our lunch and last buy of some stuffs. It was sunny and never was a sign of storm.
After getting refreshed from the long ride, we negotiated motorcyc ...
Only the three of you? You don't have any man with you?!
Not only once did we hear that question during our hike to Mt. Hambubuyog whenever we go asking some locals for some directions. We didn't have any guide and yes, it was only the three of us (Arjonnah, Janice and I) who took the challenge to continue the journey after visiting Kawasan Falls, Mainit Spring, Montaneza Falls, and Inambakan Falls on the same day. Though there was a hint of concern, I couldn't help but feel the disbelief from those locals we ran unto. It's as if something weird had happen on Earth. Something unbelievable. ...
We began the day with a trip to Inambakan falls few kilometers from town proper. After getting a splash from the gushing waters we began trekking going to our main destination Mt. Hambubuyog - marking our 5th mountain to summit.
It was an easy walk traversing a small river going to the main highway which took us about 30 minutes or so after asking directions from the kids we encounter along the way.
We were discussing the possibility of getting lost because of our unfamiliarity, we only rely to a bit of information we gathered from the blogs we read beforehand. Nevertheless, we were posi ...
