It was August of last year, when The BACKPACKERS had a climb at Mt. Pinagbanderahan wherein we had a guest mountaineering group called I.S.G. or the Integrated Solid Group, composed of Sean Roa, Mon Fajardo and Vic Del Rosario. It was a night of scary and at the same time, wacky socials that will never be forgotten. Again, they were our guest at the rainy Mt.Pico De Loro 2013 request climb. By that time, The BACKPACKERS already had a connection with them and their company.
Come December of last year, Sean created a Facebook event entitled "Mt. Guiting Guiting Traverse". I wa ...
The islands of Romblon have something for everyone. I previously described the multifarious dive sites of the islands and the unspoiled beauty in its waters. It is time to discover the islands' other hidden attractions, unspoiled and undiscovered and away from the busloads of tourists that you find in more popular destinations in the country.
The municipality of Alcantara is called the Gateway to exotic Romblon with its pebbled beaches and clear springs. The major springs are located in Camili, Calogonsao, Bonlao, San Isidro and Madalag. Isolated coves and beaches are aplenty ...
It was still almost 4 PM, when we found a tricycle on our walk from DENR Sibuyan Substation, so we decided our luck to visit Lambingan Falls before we head back to Sanctuary Garden Resort.

After paying together with out tricycle ...

After arriving too late in the day at Sibuyan Island to launch our attempt on Mt Guiting-Guiting, we decided to spend the afternoon cooling off at Lambingan Falls. It is unusual to have some rest and recreation before the hard work but the unexpected glitch on our schedule left us with a lot of free time that day. A side trip to Boracay after the ascent to Mt Guiting Guiting was originally planned during the pre-climb meeting. It is easily accessible from Romblon in just a few hours boat ride. But with just an afternoon to while away, it was the nearby falls in Magdiwang that washed away our d ...
