A fun climb as they would call it...... Go hike all the way up then enjoy the rest of the day and or extend another day at the beach, such relaxing.
Mt. Daguldol is perfect for beginners or for people who wishes to try hiking. A 30 mins walk along shoreline of Laiya to start with can be exhausting, a direct exposure to the sun plus the sand can slows you down.
A gradual slope awaits everyone when entering the forested area, the trail was well paved however from time to time you'll see forks since some part of the mountains are inhabited.
Our Guide, (not an actual guide but the wife of our Guide) walked too fast that the team were left finding the trail and with that she forgot to bring to the Falls. (It was a waste of money for a Guide fee).
with Mang Lizardo
The team passed a Coconut farm and a small village then reached Mang Lizardo's house. During our Halo halo break at his house, Mang Lizardo shared some stories about the mountain.
He and some of his friends were the first people to reached the Summit of Mt. Daguldol, they trailblaze the area. The current trail we hikers follow was the trail created by Mang Lizardo and his friends way back.
The time we reached the summit, it was raining cats and dog.
An open field near the summit became our playground for a while and from time to time we ran towards a tree to hide when thunderstorms and lightnings occurs.
After clearing and witnessed the view from above, we started our descend and headed back to Laiya Resort where we spent our socials and celebrate our 1st year as climbing buddies.
