Mt. Daguldol Hike

I love this trip! Oh well! I always say that in all my trips, so it's not new. But this one, I like this coz this is a combination of hike and swim, the mountain and the beach together in one trip. Nice no!?

IRRI pipz packed their bags, drove their cars (oh well those that have cars only) and go on a weekend away in Laiya but not the typical Laiya beach weekend, we level up a bit. We climbed Mt. Daguldol and beach after, that is the following day.


all set for a half day hike, easy climb according to the website we visited, let me see if that's correct .... from this parking space you need to register and pay for the guides fee and the some sort of entrance to the camp site because it's a private mountain...dunno how or why but that's what they said, anyways .... we pay, can't be sure but i think we paid P30 per head


start of trek, nice! beach area...you'll pass by La Luz resort and climb the rocky area to get to this rocky part =P


after the beach trek we pass by a sari-sari store and rest/drink/cr break before proceeding


after the sari-sari store, no more community on our way...just greens greeting us


Marie from France exchange greetings with this big leaf


another soft drinks break


Jill from Scotland posing before the Daguldol orchids, both a lovely sight


a monkey, another company aside from the greens and orchids


moving up up and up some more


you call this an easy climb? tell it to the marines =)


the last store before going up....they offer halo-halo and fresh buko


then up again


yahooooooo almost there, just a little bit more


first to reach the camping site were May and Paul


after a little rest, we put up our house for the night




then we go around the place and found another camp site, bigger than our camp site but a bit far from the water source


from the big camp site you can see this awesome view of the beach






enjoying some more the big camp site before going back


dinner time


1-2-3 pass after dinner, the Filipino rule over the French in this game


then party using our mobile phones as disco lights and sounds


sunrise greeting us a new day =)



preparing for breakfast were Tiny and Litel


the hikers posing one more time in our camp site


there's a sign you can see while you trek Daguldol that says "Don't change the mountain, let the mountain change you" and for sure this hike changed us....
