Hike to Mt. Sto Tomas (now as Sitio La Presa)

Sitio La Presa is one of the famous tourist spot now in Baguio City. Thanks to Forevermore– our local TV series which was shoot in this area. The amount of tourist have increased tremendously due to this series. It’s good for tourism, but sadly…the place became too crowded, too much traffic, paid comfort room now and the price for foods have increased.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against as it gives additional livelihood for people who lived there. I just really miss the old place – the old Mt. Sto Tomas.  People here are still  nice but missing the affordable food.

Feb 2013 – my colleagues in Moog decided to go for a day hike at Mt. Sto. Tomas. To burn some of our fats and obviously, to see the wonderful view of Baguio City.

You need to sign at the Ranger’s logbook first. Then you can start the hike. You can walk or ride a car or jeepney. But we chose to walk on our way up to see the beautiful sights but felt tired so had to hitch a ride.
