Mountaineering is one of the trending activities nowadays. Some people on social media had gone through a lot of this activities and it makes me wonder what beauty will I see there. When my friends in law school invited me in one of their climbs, I was hesitant at first because I have acrophobia (fear of heights) and I’m more of a beach person.
But I still went with them anyways, trying something for the first time ain’t bad I guess. 🙂
We were advised to take the long trail because the short trail is too slippery and steep given that it rained the night before our trip.
Our estimated expenses per head was P500 – P600:
P70 van from Starmall to Tanay
P500 for the tricycle to Brgy. Daraitan
P20 per head paid at the Barangay Hall for the Environment fee
P500 for the tour guide
P20 per head at the Tinipak River
P5 for the Indigenous Group as donation before entering the Tinipak Cave
Another P500 for the tricycle back to Tanay proper
P70 going back to the city 😀
The body pains and leg numbness is all worth it for this trip. Not bad for my first mountain experience. Its beyond good, actually! And a nice way to officially start my summer vacation!
