When i visit Philippines i decided to join in one group of mountaineers who organizing climb. And i chose their mountains to climb yes, i read the difficulties but i said it doesn’t matter the important is i don’t wanna waste my time here in philippines without doing anything. So, i inform the main organizer of this climb that i don’t have a proper training .. the only thing i can do is to jog around in our village.

We reach the summit but .. but one thing’s for sure, the weather wasn’t that cooperative during the 3 days we were trekking down.
