Hello, this is my first blog post. Just relax and be engulf in the beauty of the environment as I show you some of the highlights of my adventure. Be with me in this journey as I uncover my experiences going to Pico de Loro and together let’s enjoy the beauty that our nature has to offer!
My sister and I went to Mcdo near LRT Buendia station. We need to get there early, because she was the coordinator of that climb. Of course, I washed myself early because I don’t want other participants to feel uncomfortable of me. Exactly 3am in the morning, I was SHOCKED that there were so many people already prepared for the adventure or maybe because I was just seeing myself before as a kind of creature who will spend my weekend in my room. They played anime songs and one of them is my favorite (Flame of Recca OST). I took a short nap while waiting for the others because I’m a traveler who wanted to see panoramic beauty of my dearest country and I’m proud to say that Philippines has a lot of wonderful spot. Then, when everyone was there, we departed and do what was written in the itinerary.
Along the way, I saw the route to Ternate Beach Resort (next blog post). When we reached our destination, my sister did a short briefing about the mountain. Want to know an interesting fact? She said that the named PICO referred only to the peak of the mountain and not the mountain itself. It is also the highest peak in Cavite BUT don’t be confused! Pico de Loro is not located in Batangas but when you traverse to Nasugbu, Batangas is your new path.
I had a hard time taking pictures in that mountain because of the up and down, rocky trails. Some piece of advice: Make sure that you condition yourself for a tough hiking venture and pack slices of patience as many as you can. ;D
Halo-halo from 7-Eleven at the Mountain
Along the way you will not get hungry. When you heard a bell, *kring kring* Oh! There’s a taho and cold ice cream that awaits you. I was amazed on how they lifted those things in the mountain. ( Just imagine…….. O.O )
“Take nothing but pictures.”
Next, there was a beautiful landscape on the left side. Almost there!
Believe in your tour guides, they will not let you fall. Buti pa sila di ka hahayaang malaglag.
Stolen shot by Ate Ann. How I wished I can dive into the sea.
Sidetrip at Kaybiang Tunnel. This is the longest tunnel that we’ve got. For the future engineers, this is now your calling.
Finally! We had a delightful Bulalo dinner near Buendia Station and I’m so tired to take pictures.
