Five Reasons You’ll Get High With Caramoan

I’m so baked right now reading about it. What more if I am there experiencing it!!!!

The Joys of Journeying

Going to Caramoan means enduring more than two-hour boat ride from Sabang pier to Guijalo port, a less than ten-minute ride from Guijalo to town proper, and another fifteen-minute road trip (where the road is muddy during rainy season) from town proper to Paniman, one of the jump-off sites for island hopping. Not to mention the seven-hour butt and neck numbing ride if you choose to go to Naga from Manila by bus.

But despite this excruciating, all-day ride travelers have to go through to get to Caramoan, it seems that none of them seem to mind, especially if the basis of this observation would be the number of tourists that have visited the peninsula since it came to…

Mt. Pulag

The majestic Mt. Pulag.

Climbing this mountain inspired me to write about my adventures.

It was life changing. I see myself as tiny dot in a world full of limitless possibilities.

 

THE PATH

Trekking the different paths of this majestic mountain (mossy forest, grasslands, dirt and dusty rough roads) has been a food to the soul. It nourishes your inner self to be at peace with mother earth. It connects your life force to the great circle of life. It opens the pores of your spiritual self and absorb the air that is God’s love. Sounds cheesy but that’s how it felt. I’m serious 😐

THE PEOPLE

Warm greetings of hi’s and hello’s. Wishing people luck and take cares are some of the things you will encounter climbing. You’re lucky if you get some advice and stories from strangers you meet. Some life lessons and some great tips!

You will see and feel what a wonderful world (ha ha did you sing the song?)

 

THE COLD

Perhaps the coldest temperature I have experienced. And the kind of cold you that you will miss every now and then!

THE ADVENTURE

Rough roads you trek.

Rough winds you endure.

Vertical drop of rains you encounter.

Long lines of head lights and lamps, a sight to see, you will treasure

Summit assault, the climb where you want to be

Deep breaths you take

Great leaps you must make

All along, this is an amazing adventure you will remember!
