Mount Pulag

DIFFICULTY LEVEL (according to TA site): 4/10

Last December, Tin and I spontaneously booked a hike in Mt. Pulag (via Ambangeg) with Trail Adventours. It was scheduled in late January, which meant that we would be there in one of its coldest days (a lot of people say Jan-Feb are the coldest months).

Masungi Georeserve

Masungi Georeserve started to become popular around late 2015/early 2016 to the point that all weekends until mid-2016 were already booked. I had my hopes down that I would not be able to visit this anytime soon but eventually, one day back in May, my sister chanced upon a free slot on June 25 (which was a Saturday).

Mount Gulugod-Baboy + Sombrero Island

DIFFICULTY LEVEL (according to TA site): 2/10

Just like the previous hike, I booked this trip via Trail Adventours and was accompanied by Tin. Our main guides this time were Jeric and JP, who were both funny and easy to talk to. We were blessed that we had a good weather that day so we did not worry about muddy trails and getting wet in the middle of the hike.
