    Mount Napulauan Traverse To Balentimol Village-Climb 2016

    Sa blog post na ito, aking isasalin sa tagalog ang aking kwento sapagkat ang aming akyat sa Mt. Napulauan ay naganap noong buwan ng Agosto na kung saan ay Buwan ng wika at buwan rin ng aking kapanganakan.

    Ang Mt. Napulauan o Mt. Napulawan ay matatagpuan sa bayan ng Hungduan, Ifugao. Ito ay may taas na 2,642+ MASL. Handog ng bundok na ito ang magandang Mossy Forest at mga Rice Terraces. Ngunit handog din ng bundok na ito ang matitinding ahunan o yung sinasabing unli assaults at mga limatik (blood leeches).
