I really made this blog to post about my mountain climbing and running sports or other outdoor related activities but I now decided to post other activities outside of the category I mentioned so I can only focus on one blog. I actually have a tumblr account but I want to focus more on blogger.

So, I'm lucky to have a good friend of mine who invited us to Shangri-La Mactan last summer. This 5-star hotel was really great! It will costs you up to 20,000 if you will check in there but we were guests of our friend so we are free in their facilities.


Mt. Canlaon For the Second Time Around

10:21 AM CARLA 0 Comments

It was around last June 2009 that our mountaineering group, the Inter-Mountaineering Society (IMS) has again organized an independence climb in Mt Canlaon, Negros Oriental. So the reason why I have posted it only now is because my blog has been dormant for almost a year due to my laziness. It was actually my second time already in Canlaon because the organization has first organized a clmib last June 2008. It felt so good to have climbed the same mountain for two years straight specially we are taking different trails this year. 

So we started trekking at Mapot. We trekked for about 3-4 hours before we arrived at our first campsite which is just below the forest line. For the second day, we hiked towards Makawiwili  Peak which is the most tiring trek of all.

This is the view from the Makawiwili Peak taken during the first day of our climb. The background is the Mt. Canlaon volcano. It was so great because in last year's climb, all we see in Makawiwili is fog.
