    Mt Pamitinan Traverse To Karugo Falls

    Where: Montalban,Rizal

    When: August 29, 2016 Holiday(dayhike)/Monday

    It started to drizzle when we set our feet off at Mt. Pamitinan jump off point.

    It was our first Holiday trek together since we used to hike on regular weekdays either Monday or Tuesday just to avoid a crowd of hikers and take pleasure in the scene more. But we were still lucky that there were only 2 or 3 group of hikers that day and so we were still able to enjoy the trail and it was indeed relaxing. This trek gave us so much unforgettable experiences, muddy and slippery trail, being soaked under the rain , unlimite ...

    Hiked To Mount Ayaas

    I've been on a quest to finish all four mountains in Sitio Wawa, Montalban (Rodriguez), Rizal. It started with my first successful twin hike to Mts. Pamitinan and Binacayan, and now I've finished another, the not-so-gentle giant, Mt. Ayaas!

    "What mountain will the destination be this time?", asked the locals at the jump off who are already used with our presence on a weekday. "To Mt. Ayaas", our reply. " That is along walk from here", their common answer.

    We left Sitio Wawa on our own. Our runner friend who is from here and familiar to all the trails of the nearby mountain ranges is not available to join us this time. Started with the same trail as that of Mt. Pamitinan and Mt. Hapunang Banoi, it is evident that it has been raining in this area the ...

    Wawa Dam and Karugo Falls

    Wawa Dam (also known as Montalban Dam) is a gravity dam constructed over the Marikina River in the municipality of Rodriguez in Rizal province, Philippines. The slightly arched dam is situated in the 360-metre (1,180 ft) high Montalban Gorge or Wawa Gorge, a water gap in the Sierra Madre Mountains, east of Manila. It was built in 1909 during the American colonial era to provide the water needs for Manila. It used to be the only source of water for Manila until Angat Dam was built and Wawa was abandoned. Due to insufficiency of water supply for Metro Manila, there was a strong clamor to reuse t ...
