It's our second climb at this magnificent mountain and it seems it wants us to keep coming back. The strenuous climb just take my adrenaline rush to a challenge. To see the expansive flora and fauna of the surrounding area atop is a definite wow.

フィリピンネグロス島 ドゥマゲティからバレンシアへバイクで15分。1日のday hike。約11時間。 素晴らしい景色が楽しめるトレッキングコースです。日数があれば湖でキャンプをして頂上を目指すことをオススメします。 頂上からの眺めは最高です!紹介してもらったガイドさんは山を熟知しておりとても信頼がおけます。人柄も素晴らしい方です。希望に合わせて1日、2日、それ以上、のプランを考えてくれます。興味がありましたら是非、コンタクトとってみてください。 下りの時に滝に寄れます。申し出てみてください。水着や着替えがあると良いです(^^) This is my first time for visiting Philippines. I had an awesome trek!!! About 11hours a day.You can decide to plan day hike or overnight or more.please ask to guide who be make your plan. The guiding who the...More

Trekked Mt. Talinis for 13 hours! Fantastic! Jump-off at Apolong-Casaroro and exit at Bediao, Dauin. While I did not reach any of the summits, it was the amazing journey that was rewarding. Don't miss the Twin Falls, Sulphur River and Lake Yagumyum.

I just did the one-day trek to Lake Nailig starting from Apolong Trail. It was very challenging. I strongly discourage you to do it in one day unless you are really fit. Most people do overnight trips to Talinis but I didn't have enough time....More
