Calaguas: Trekking

2 April 2016 | Part 5


My sister and I had no plans of hiking that day. We just needed to send a message to our family, to tell them we arrived safely. The only way to do that was to climb up a hill.


A long single pathway led us to the base of the hill.

There was an entrance fee of 20 pesos and some refreshments for sale. The fee was reasonable, considering they had to maintain the trail especially during rainy days.

The climb wasn’t too high. It was a 15 to 20 minutes trek that even older people could enjoy. The view half way up…

Getting to the top and finding these cheerful gatekeepers. Another 20 pesos to pay before you enter.

The view was nice, but nicer without a crowd 🙂

They who dwell in the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs;
You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy.
