mount pico de loro

Posted on: June 23, 2015

i’d been wanting to climb mt. pico de loro for the longest time… i had initially booked a trip sometime last year but there weren’t that many participants. luckily, there was a surge of travelers by around january and i was finally able to go! huzzah!

the first few kilometers weren’t so bad, there were visible paths and and not too much obstacles save for some steep mounds of loose soil, charot. we rested a bit by the subi-neer store, this is base camp 1, where you can buy souvenirs and drinks and ogle some cats.

the trail onwards is very straightforward, we just battled a lot of fallen trees and boulders. on a side note, we also whistled the mockingjay song while trudging about, hahaha.

when you get to the top, (which i did after slipping several times, to the horror of our guide) you get a really nice view of cavite and batangas, lounge under the shade of bamboo trees, and you get to clean out your lungs with fresh air.

i must admit, i was half waiting for some hovercrafts to pick me up, and was imaging a big booming voice announcing me as the winner of the hunger games, haha. climbing mt. pico de loro is one of the best things i ever did and i hope i could conquer more mountains soon.
