  • Backpacking In The Philippines And The Race To Unexplored Destinations

    Anyone can tell you that as early as 3 years ago, local travel wasn't mainstream. In travel speak, it's the good ol' days.

    I could remember walking along the shores of Calaguas in Bicol Province, passing by children playing and a few other tourists having an early-morning swim. My footsteps were the only mark in the sand.

    Things are different now.

    Most people have joined the travel bandwagon, thanks to social media and low-cost airline prices. My Facebook feed is filled with travel posts. For us backpackers, the new challenge is to get to the next destination before it hits the public ...

  • Mountain Province Maligcong Rice Terraces A Traverse

    It was inevitable. We had to do something while in Maligcong. It was on our third day of doing nothing and the pressure was building. Guests at the homestay were coming and going, and us, we were still sitting our asses off, alternating between cold beer and hot mountain coffee in between meals at the veranda. Our host was already harried, wanting to guide us herself to the peaks of Mount Kupapey for the sunrise and Mount Fato for the sunset. We were unfazed. But yes, we have to at least do something while in Maligcong.

    And so it was that one morning as the rain finally abated to a very lig ...

  • Mount Kupapey Climb

    Mt.Kupapey is 1647 MASL, with trail difficulty: 3/9. The summit will offer an overlooking view of Maligcong Rice Terraces and a sea of clouds. Mt.Kupapey entire experience is lite and easy, this is one of the easiest mountain I've climb. And a chance to walk alone in the middle of unfamiliar trail is priceless. It's a chance for me to think about the serious matter about life. The cold wind and the sounds of nature is so relaxing, and the view of Maligcong Rice Terraces is amazing, a perfect landscape.

    How to get there:

    From Manila, ride a bus to Baguio City. Then a bus to Bontoc. Pls Ca ...

  • Mt Ulap And Mt Kofafey Hike

    I found these two mountains interesting because of their names and of course what we can see when at their summit. I'm supposed to organize a group tour to mt. Pulag but they said it's a bit too crowded and we need to give the mountain a bit of space, so I decided to just do a hike in mt Purgatory but when I started to ask people on fb if they have contacts of the guides there some said it's closed and some it's now open. So I was a bit hesitated to do it in mt puragatory. I want it to be sure for my participants. Then I saw Mt. Ulap, name's pretty catchy and the view of the gungal rock's pret ...

  • Mountain Climbing In Mount Kupapey

    Because promises are not made to be broken.

    Yep, back in 2015(first attempt to visit Cordillera region) i promised to visit this place again, due to the weather condition that time we can't possibly scale it plus planting season haven't started yet.

    Again, i asked a friend to accompany me in exploring Cordillera region (which will be discuss in other post). Guess it's her first time here in the CAR and she's not a hiker, but i wanted to challenge her so much that I've asked her to climb 2 mountain within that 24 hours stay in Maligcong.

    Let's start with something like, waking up 3am ...
