Adventure Week Review #2: Mts. Pulag, Pico de Loro and Walk with Bonifacio


July 14-15, 2012. Mts. Pulag, Pico de Loro and Walk with Bonifacio

It’s now rainy season in the Philippines but the adventures continue! Last weekend, we had trips to Pico de Loro, Mt. Pulag, and, for the first, a historical journey to Mt. Buntis where revolutionary hero Andres Bonifacio was executed in 1896.

For the Mt. Pulag trip, 15 participants joined the team led by Osep Reyes and Banny Balaguer. The first day was rainy, but fortunately, the weather cooperated and they had stunning views of the sunrise and everyone made it to the highest peak in Luzon! Congratulations team!

On the other hand, down south, the Pico de Loro climb was joined by 14 climbers, mostly first timers, led by Coby Sarreal. “I was surprised at how fast the pace of the team was, considering that they we beginners!” he said of the team. the highlight of a Pico de Loro climb was a short rock scrambling up the Parrot’s Beak, and they were able to take great pictures as well!

Finally, on the same day and the same province, just 20 kilometers away, Guido and Ryan led a team of 11 to discover the historical significance of Mt. Buntis and Nagpatong, where hero Andres Bonifacio was killed – an unfortunate tragedy. it very informative climb with lots of sharing about Philippine history, Andres Bonifacio and of course, lots of fun.

Amazingly, the Pico de aloro and Mt. Buntis teams met each other…at Lolo Carling’s restaurant, a hidden culinary gem in Cavite. The chicken and other dishes were do great that the guides promised to make it w must-visit for future hikes!

Till the next weekend Adventure! See You all on the Trails!
