We took Bus from Buendia (DLTB) going to Lipa Batangas then we drop off in Tambo, Batangas. We ride a jeep bound to Lemery ( We drop off in Cuenca. ), you can ask the driver to drop you off in Cuenca if you don't know the place. Ride a tricycle going to jump off. ( Idadaan kayu sa registration blaahh (P20) per head)) Landmark where you will start the trek is the Mountaineer Store ( The Lomi there is delisyoso.)
The trail was kinda magubat. (We were walking under the trees, mabato, at papataas ng pataas). Again more water please! I admit this was a tiring trek. :P
Juna refused to climb until the what they called Rockies.I understand that she was so tired and reserving her remaining strength. (I need to encourage her. hahah. hindi ako makakapayag na hindi siya sumama. Syempre unang una ayaw ko naman mag isa, pangalawa would I allow her to put her effort into waste by not seeing the real beauty of it? No way!! Pangatlo, who will take photos then?hehahu ) Yes! it was scary but not by the time when we were there. It was tiring but fulfilling (for me) . In this part you need to be more careful.
Climbing is now a family bonding. I saw a couple with very cute baby ( a month or 1 year old ). Climbing is good for dating ( looking for special someone who will climb with me..ahahah).
Don't text while on the cliff. whahaha...Like what I've mentioned in my "About's" I'm fearless.. Me enjoying the breeze while browsing my phone. (Kapag lumakas ang hangin at hindi ako prepare pwede ako mahulog) I ignored that fact, but the guy came and shared a story about the death of a male climber who fell down exactly that area where I was at. ( hmmmpp the story makes me sad and I don't wanna die exactly like him. )
Remember this is not a marathon, you are climbing the mountain! Huwag mag magaling! haha. No it was not like that. Dahil hindi ako makapagbwelo pababa I just decided to jump thought that it would be more easy but I was not able to control my speed so un! I hold the cogon grass ( blady grass) to stop myself and the result is that very cute wound.
