    First Major Hike Mount Damas

    My first hike of the year! It's in Brgy. Papaac, Camiling, Tarlac together with Monxter Outdoor. Mt. Damas stood at 685 masl and had a difficulty level of 6/9.

    So what went on during the hike?

    First, it was easy. Yeah, yeah. The trail was calm and peaceful. I still got to la ...

    Ironically, the jump off point in Dueg resettlement area has almost the same elevation as Mt. Damas, thus maki ...
