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.
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.
In the outdoors, nothing is as easy as it seems. Believe it or not, that includes walking on concrete or dirt roads! That was what we had to contend with during our trek on Segment 2 of the Cebu Highlands Trail.
Humble places are where you learn the most important things in life such as simple joys, peace of mind, respect for Mother Nature, and appreciation of tradition. We found all these and more in Maligcong, Bontoc.
