Mt. Igcuron: Climbing the Razor’s Edge

Mt. Igcuron

Mountains are never to be underestimated. They have the absolute power to decide the fate of the very lives that set foot on their bosom and those who live beneath them. They have the capacity to protect, reshape, and destroy the land around them. Thus, we have high respect for these wonders of Mother Nature. Even the so-called minor peaks are not to be taken for granted. And once again, we felt and experienced the unfathomable power and majesty of the mountains when we ascended the small but dangerous Mt. Igcuron in Valderrama, Antique.

San Remegio is a green region known for its healthy vegetable produce, but we found out there is so much more to this magnificent highlands than just crops.

A little over a week ago, we received a very unexpected email from the Best Cebu Blogs Awards committee that Adrenaline Romance is shortlisted as a finalist for the Best Cebu Travel Blog category.
