The battle between quitting and persevering was what we fought during our climb up Mt. Kabunian, the third and final mountain in our Bakun Trilogy. Read through our amazing and exhausting climb up this treacherous mountain.
Check out our exciting documentation of our Mt. Tenglawan climb, the second mountain of the Bakun Trilogy. At more than 15 hours of walking and climbing, this is perhaps the longest day trek we’ve ever done.
Halourd, Sweetie, and I were filled with a mix of trepidation and excitement as we prepared to climb Mt. Patullok, commonly referred to as Mt. Lubo—the first of the Bakun trilogy. This is also the highest mountain of the three.
We discovered that a day trek can be as difficult as a major climb during one of our grandest adventures of 2018—the mighty Bakun Trilogy in Bakun, Benguet in Luzon, Philippines.
Although Sweetie and I are sticklers of planning, we do live for such excitement. That excitement happened during a recent weekend climb on Manggapares Trail on Tagaytay Ridge.
When you climb a mountain, pass by a highland village, or immerse with a tribe, your presence alone disrupts the natural flow and dynamics of the place. As thus, you should leave as little trace as possible.
Finishing even a quarter of a long-distance trek gives us the inspiration to go on, reinforcing the idea that it can be done. That was exactly what happened when we finished Segment 2 of the Cebu Highlands Trail.
