near yet so far
Part of the 3-day PACKERS Invades Marinduque is to summit Mt. Malindig, Highest peak in the Island. The Picture above was taken when we were leaving Tres Reyes Island (Island to the right is the well-known Bellarocca Island Resort). From Tres Reyes Island we then headed to Brgy. Sihi for registration and secured Guide which is mandatory then headed to the Jump Off point.
Entry point is from the highway then entering to a small community, further we found ourselves inside the Coconut Field. We were still on the lowland area however what amazed me the most was that in every Coconut Tree, there were mosses growing on its body. Our guide told us that during November - January the area is mostly covered with fog and yes the temperature is really cold on those month.
Me at Falls 3
After uploading my Mt. Balabag - Solo Climb Pics, Sir Vince Cent (http://deequixotic.blogspot.com/) commented that 4th and 5th falls are located above the 3rd falls. So tama nga ako sa paginterpret sa blog ni Ms. Akyatera Bundokera.
Headed back sa Mt. Balagbag, this time I invited few of my friends. This time it's a quest to reach the 4th and 5th falls not much of a "pamumundok".
Led the group and escorted them to the same route I took during my Solo Climb. This time I had some time to enjoy the mini falls, taking pictures at magbabad in a short span of time. The girls and Robbie seems to enjoy the trail, I saw smile and glee in their faces.
We spend most of the time bathing at Falls 3, laughing.....enjoying the water.....photo shoot..... parang mga bata lang na nagtatampisaw sa tubig. I told the group about my intention of the said climb, it was more of a personal quest, my hunger to reach the 4th and 5th. The group agreed to join me with this crazy quest of mine (thanks!). I left the group for a while to look for the exact route....
Something to look forward
Empty weekend about to end, ayoko masayang ang araw kaya I decided to embark another Solo Climb and isa lang pumasok sa utak ko that time..... Mt. Balagbag.
Googled it up and came across sa blog ni Ms. Akyatera Bundokera (http://bundokaholics.blogspot.com).
According to Ms. Akaytera Bundokera, there are 4 trails available that will lead you to the summit: Horse Trail, Rotary Trail, Waterfalls Trail and Licao-licao trail.
To add some spice to this solo climb of mine, I chose the Waterfalls Trail (Five Waterfalls). No specific itinerary for this climb, since I have all the time to traverse the said mountain.
