Mt. Ulap

Mt Ulap is a new mountain getting a lot of attention from all hikers – newbie, seasoned hikers or hardcore hikers. You can enjoy the beauty by simply doing a dayhike. This was featured in Lakbay to Love movie of Solenn Heusaff and Dennis Trillo. So before it became congested and to cure my weekend boredom, I joined the hike of Trail Insanity (c/o Rox) and paid Php 500 for this trek inclusive of dinner plus side trip to Baguio. The fee is lower since I’ll just meet them here in Baguio since I live here. It doeszn’t matter if I have no friends on the trek. Travelling solo made me an independent, confident woman and at the same time, it gives me a chance to meet new friends.

I was so excited for this trip to have my instagram worthy photo at the famous Gungal rock. I woke up at 4am and met the group at 4:30 am at Loakan Airport Arc. We had to stop and wait for another participant at PMA. After few minutes, our group is complete and we’re on our way to Mt Ulap. We arrived past 5am at Ampucao National High School where you need to register and get your guide.

We started the hike at 5:30am and ended the hike by noon time traverse to Barangay Sta Fe. As usual, we are last to arrive the peak together with my new friends – Lher, Ruth and Emz. I enjoyed hiking with these three ladies since we always have time for photo op. We enjoyed the view and talk about a lot of things. Just like me and Bim, they met each other and became friends during a trip only. Then they became travel buddies.

Here’s my photo diary for this trek and some important information.

Mis-Adventure in Cagayan Province

After being sick for two weeks and not able to join Bim on our Panay Trip, I’m finally feeling better and ready to go back to work. Unfortunately, when I was asking for my “fit to work” clearance from our Company Doctor, she told me wait for another two days. I can just to go work on December 1 (Tuesday) since Nov 30 (Monday) is a holiday. It’s another four days for me  not doing anything at home. Two weeks is already enough so I don’t need this extra four days, boredom is already killing me.

So I browsed the internet, facebook and look for any tours that I can join. Good thing, there’s a trip going to Cagayan Province via Lakbay Backpackers. It’s a Baguio travel agency so it means free ride from Baguio to our destination. Almost all the trips that I joined, meet up place is in Manila so I had to travel down from Baguio to Manila.

I always wanted to visit Cagayan to see Callao Cave and the famous Palaui Island (home for survivor US). Before the trip, the travel agency (May) texted me if we still wanted to proceed with the trip since it’s been raining in Cagayan which means big waves so it’s very hard to go island hopping. She told me that we are divided into three groups: group of friends from Manila, lovebirds from Baguio and solo girl from Baguio (that’s me). I told her that my decision will be based on the big group, if they cancel, then I’ll have to cancel also. Good thing, they decided to push with the trip. 🙂

10

The itinerary makes me so excited since it’s a three day full of activity – island hopping, trek to lighthouse, beach bumming and church visits. But unfortunately, the itinerary was not followed. Instead of 8hours drive from Manila to Cagayan, it took us 15 hours (arrived 3pm at Sta Ana Cagayan). I think the problem is that we only have one (1) driver, so we need to take lots of breaks/rest… safety first right.

It was raining so it’s not advisable to go to Palaui. Our Day 1 was used for travel and rest at Jotay’s resort. Good thing, they have swimming pool so I just did an underwater pictorial with Chamy and Harold (lovebirds from Baguio). We also went to see their market and bought some goodies for our island hopping  tomorrow.

won’t let our first day go to waste 🙂

After breakfast, it is now time to go island hopping. I’ve visited different islands – in and out of our country, but the boat ride to Palaui is the most scariest ride that I’ve ever did.

I’m glad that we made it alive! Thanks to our expert boatmen. 🙂

definitely, the scariest boat ride experience

It took us an hour to reach our first destination: Anguib Beach. It has fine sands and blue water. As always, took lots of pictures and enjoyed the beach.

Chamy and I wanted to see the hidden falls but the other big group doesn’t want to, so we moved to our next stop: Crododile Island.

can you spot the crocs? 🙂

After island hopping, it’s time to eat our late lunch at Nangaramoan Beach. We were surprised that we will be sleeping in one small room with no private toilet at Mar-pe’s Lodging and Cottages (Phone#09174767041). It’s not acceptable for a group of 10 people to sleep in a small room. So we decided to pay an added fee so we can have our private room. I think I added Php 600 pesos since it’s only the three (3) of us in our room – Chamy and her bf Harold; and me. Our coordinator Tosz and driver Roger slept inside the van only.

It was agreed that we will leave the beach early so we can complete our remaining itinerary, but the big group was late so we left an hour late against our original plan.

We ate our breakfast first at Dodie’s Panciteria. This was featured by Rated K already for their famous pansit batil patung.

Then off to Callao Cave – yippee! This famous cave was featured on the movie of John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo “The Mistress” wedding scene. Our guide told us that you can use this as venue for weddings. You just need to decorate it and pay Php 20 entrance fee for each guest. I was also surprised that this is not the only attraction on this cave. It has seven chambers but you can only go up to the 5th chamber. Here you will see different rock formations.

after 184 steps, we reached the entrance to the Callao Cave

There’s so much more to do within Callao Cave like boating to falls. But due to time constraint, after spelunking, we went to visit the Basilica Minore of Our Lady of Piat.

During lunch time, Tosz found out that we already pass the other church. We had to go back to Sta Ana again to see it. But the team decided that we will just travel back to Manila since it’s gonna be another 13-15hours. It’s sad that I won’t be able to see the other churches but at least I was able to see one. It’s enough for me for this trip.

They need to drop the Manila peep first before going back to Baguio. So that means, I might be late for my work. Chamy and I decided to take a bus going to Baguio. We arrived in Tarlac at 3am and arrived in Baguio 6am. After power nap, I’m ready for work.

L & L: Loreland Farm Resort + Luljetta’s Hanging Garden

There are lots of affordable hotels and resort in Antipolo but we decided to have our overnight  stay at Loreland Farm Resort since we wanted  to experience Luljetta’s Hanging Garden.

We chose option 1: Bed + Breakfast + Day Tour Access in Luljetta’s with meals for 2 pax. It’s a standard double room – air conditioned, toilet & bath and cable TV. Although located outside the main resort, it is only a 5 minute walk going to Luljetta’s Hanging Garden and Spa.

Inclusions are:

Welcome drink and snack of Antipolo’s Best Suman

Hanging Garden’s Getaway for 2 at Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens and Spa (6 hours). This includes the traditional bathrobe (batik) and towels for use. Access to Hanging Gardens Facilities (locker, sauna, heated Jacuzzi, hydro massage, infinity pools, dr. fish and meditation lounges).

Woke up early and had our free breakfast at Verde Restaurant. Our plan for the next day is to leave Loreland early so we will be in Tanay before lunchtime. But we explore the place and saw lots of swimming pool. So instead of leaving early, we changed to our swimming outfits and enjoy the pools.

Pinto Art Museum

 

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts of Pinto Art Museum in Instagram so this one is definitely included in our Rizal trip itinerary. We arrived past 12 noon  so we are very tired and hungry. After paying the entrance fee of Php 180/pax, we decided to eat lunch first before exploring the place. It’s good that they have a baggage counter where you can leave your bags.

This place is perfect for pictorials. I’m glad that I’m with my travel sissy Bim. He’s fun to be with, no dull moments and always on the go. Plus he’s a very good photographer! He knows where’s the best spot and angle to have my instagram worthy pics. This is why I always have beautiful photos every trip.

Beyond Baguio

With the completion of the Pangasinan portion of TPLEX (Tarlac-Pangasinan- La Union Expressway), the trip to Baguio from Manila via Kennon Road is only 3 to 4 hours. It’s  fast and easy so every weekend, lots of tourist goes to Baguio not only due to cold weather but also to see the famous tourist spots in the city. But did you know that there are other places that you can visit beyond Baguio City?

Here are my top five (5) spots that will surely make your weekend to Baguio more exciting:

1. BALATOC MINES, ITOGON BENGUET. Learn and experience the life of a miner. This is just 30 minutes away from Baguio City. This can be reach via private car or public jeepney bound to Balatoc-Acupan located at Harrison – SSS Petron Station, fare is Php 24/pax.  Tour Fee is  Php 250/pax with certificate. It’s a 2 hour tour inside the tunnel where you learn about the stages of gold mining while wearing the proper safety gear. You can contact them at 09212990169 or visit their site at http://www.facebook.com/balatocminestour. Make sure to contact them first since it was closed last November due to the typhoon.

2. DAYHIKE AT MT. ULAP , ITOGON BENGUET. Lose some calories by doing a day hike to Mt. Ulap (4 to 6 hours trek). Here you’ll see the stunning views of mountains, pines and grassland ridges and even burial caves. This is just 40 minutes away from Baguio City. This can be reach via private car or public jeepney bound to Ampucao located at Harrison – SSS Petron Station, fare is Php 32/pax.  Just ask local directions on how to reach Ampucao Barangay Hall where you need to register and secure a guide. Better if you hike with your friends so you can save some cash on guide fee.

3. CHASING WATERFALLS: BRIDAL VEIL FALLS & COLORADO FALLS, TUBA BENGUET.  You can visit these falls before going up to Baguio since it’s located at the border between Camp 1 and Camp 2 Kennon Road. But if you’re in Baguio already, ride the public vans located at Harrison – SSS Petron Station, fare is Php 70/pax. Just tell the driver to drop you at Twin Peaks, Colorado Falls. Then after hiking at Colorado, you can either walk or ride a tricyle (Php 15) to go to Bridal Veil Falls.

No hike required to reach Bridal Veil Falls, you can actually see it from the highway and can see it closer by crossing the hanging bridge. There is no fee, just bring your swimwear and enjoy the cold water.

Just 5 to 10 minutes away from Bridal Veil Falls is the Colorado Falls at Twin Peaks. It’s a 27-tier waterfalls. There’s a “no trespassing sign” so I guess it’s closed now. Make sure you get a local to guide you on your hike/trek since the trail is not that good. You need to cross the hanging bridge, rivers and climb huge boulders. Take extra careful, just one wrong move and it’s game over.

4. KLONDYKE HOT SPRING, TUBA BENGUET. It’s  a small beautiful resort located at Camp 1. You’ll reach this first before going to Baguio via private car. But if you’re in Baguio already, ride the public vans located at Harrison – SSS Petron Station, fare is Php 70/pax. Just tell the driver to drop you at the resort. This is a perfect place to relax. Entrance Fee is Php 100/pax.8

5. MT STO TOMAS, TUBA BENGUET. This is one of my favorite place to do hiking even before the famous “Forevermore” TV Series. Make sure not to miss the Sto Tomas Reservoir, radar and the bedrock. You can get here via private car, or rent a taxi (Php 300/hour) or public jeepneys located near Hotel Veniz (fare: less than Php 50/pax).

BCM: A Historical Tour

December means a long holiday…yipeee! It’s a perfect time to travel and explore a new place. Our first choice is to do a Bicolandia trip but due to recent typhoon, we had to look for another place. The next choice is Baler, we will be joining a tour but since no available tour on our selected dates and doing DIY for two is very expensive, we decided to cancel Baler also. So where did we go then?

Dec 27: Visited  the Unexplored Sisiman Lightless Lighthouse in Mariveles Bataan.

Antipolo’s Mystical Cave

If you will visit Antipolo Rizal, make sure not to miss the Mystical Cave of Inday Nelly.

You can reach the cave  by hiring a tricycle, make sure to let him wait for you. It’s hard to wait for a tricycle since this is not the usual path of public tricycle and jeepneys.

It was named Mystical Cave due to many religious and holy images inside the cave. It is also believed that the water drips inside the cave can heal people. It has 7 chambers but you can only visit until the 3rd chamber. Every Lenten Season or Holy week, many people visits this cave and put up some tents inside the cave. This place was also used by film makers for movies like Enkantadia, Pedro Penduko, Spirit Warriors, Dyesebel, Marina and Asian Treasures. Entrance Fee is Php 50.

During our visit last Oct 3, there’s no other visitor but us (Bim and I) due to the recent typhoon. We’re lucky since it’s not raining that time and the sun is out. We were greeted by our little guide. She told us to go up and see the Mystical Cross first before going inside the cave. She said that the view on top will show the whole Antipolo and nearby province.

The trail to the mystical Cross is a hard one for me since my shoes is not for hiking. Due to the typhoon, it’s a very muddy and rocky trail. I almost gave up and ask Bim to continue on his own. He went up and told me that we are almost at the top. So I decided to move on, take off my shoes and walk barefoot. I’m glad that Bim never give up and pushed me to complete the hike. We finally reached the cross and greeted by this magnificent view. It’s true that difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.

After taking a lot of pictures, we went down to see what’s inside the Cave. But before that, I need to clean my muddy feet. This time, I’m wearing my hiking sandals now. Take a short rest and ready to explore the cave.

And we’re ready!

Day 2: Negros Oriental Eco Tour

My second day eco tour leads me to Sibulan, Negros Oriental to see the famous Twin Lakes – Lake Balinsasayao and Lake Danao.

start of the long and winding road to the twin lakes

It was almost an hour motorcycle ride from Dumaguete to SIbulan…why? I always asked my guide to stop, enjoy the view and take pictures. Addicted right?  The road to the twin lakes is a steep and winding path, good thing, I’m used to the zigzag road of Baguio.

Lake Balinsasayao is a protected habitat for birds, a noisy ride is not allowed. So we had to leave the motorcycle and walked 1km to reach the lakes. A few bikers passed us by…you know me, i’m sooo slow…. I’m not in a hurry since I always find time to enjoy the view.

Finally, we’re here! There’s a typhoon so they have few visitors only. Activities include swimming, fishing, boating, trekking and kayaking. There is a clean restroom and a small canteen selling beverages and light snacks. So if you forgot to bring some food, no worries! 🙂

This ends my Eco Tour.

I will definitely go back to Negros — there’s still a lot of places to explore. See you soon! 🙂 ❤

Day 1: Negros Oriental Eco Tour :-)

Despite the storm and me being alone on this trip, it didn’t stop me explore Negros Oriental.

I contacted several tour agency in Dumaguete but most of the tour package are beyond my budget. Good thing, I stumbled on the page of WPG Philcan Tours (http://philtraveltours.com). Their tour package is in USD but I still tried to contact them. To my surprise, Gord (owner) replied to me and he was very accommodating and willing to help me out on this trip with affordable budget. If you have plan to visit Negros Oriental, you can contact him via email – gord@traveltours.com or call him at 09154881914.

My guide – Kuya Jong2 pick me at the Gazeebo Pension House. We will be going to Dauin for snorkeling and Casaroro Falls via tricycle.

Unfortunately, due to the typhoon which brought big waves made it so impossible or difficult for me to go snorkeling. I’m a bit disappointed since I’m not able to see the fishes. 😦

no swimming! :-(

no swimming! 😦

After a few photo op, I told him that we can just go to Casaroro Falls. It will be difficult to go there via tricycle so we decided that I’ll just ride on his motorcycle. It’s not a big deal for me since I used to ride motorcycle with my brothers in Subic.

There are so many beautiful sights along the way so I can’t resist but to take some photos. I usually have more than 1000 photos on any of my trips. Am I addicted to photos? 🙂

15

At last, we’re here! There’s a stairs going down to Casaroro Falls. But to may dismay, I still can’t see the magnificent falls at the end of the stairs. You need to take the difficult (for me) trail and trek for another 20-30 minutes to see the falls. I didn’t push to do the trek since my guide is not familiar on the trail. So I was disappointed again….

14 16 21 IMG_3595

Seeing that I’m so disappointed, my guide told me that he’ll bring me to a better falls for free. So we went to see “MALABO FALLS” at Valencia. It is popularly known as Pulang Bato Falls due to the red color of its rocks. Locals say it is the presence of iron minerals that made the rocks turn red.

we're here!

we’re here!

I actually enjoyed my visit here since I had the chance to swim. Just a short walk from the entrance is the man-made stone-lined swimming lagoon that is fed by small ‘falls’ cascading down the walls surrounding the lagoon.
