Hiking matters #64: Now in Baguio after Bakun Trio!
BAGUIO CITY – Once again I am in Baguio after a climb, but this time around it wasn’t just one climb, but three: the Trio of Lubo, Kabunian, and Tenglawan in the unbelievably beautiful town of Bakun, Benguet! I made a blog entry from Bakun last night and will post it tomorrow when I arrive in Manila. This post is just to let you know that I’m still here and the reason why the comments piled up and left unmoderated is because I was on expedition mode.
When I’m in Baguio I always make it a point to meet with old friends, get some strawberry shake, and feast in Pizza Volante, venue of many a celebration past: Mt. Tabayoc, the Pulag Charity Climb, Mt. Ugo.
God was really merciful and He blessed us with perfect weather most of them time. In particular, I thank Him for healing my finger that nearly got fractured on the way down from Mt. Lubo. I was bracing for the worst: having to forego Kabunian and Tenglawan and take the jeep back to Baguio. But thankfully the finger somehow improved and on morning of Day 2 I was back on track.
Thanks to the PALMC guys led by their president Ding Cailipan and expedition leader Ojie Padilla, Jr. for these climbs which I really enjoyed. Getting to Bakun was hard enough and doing all three climbs, uprooted from my medical training, is really quite a challenge for a weekend so I think I’m gonna have some nice sleep on the bus that leaves in 15 minutes.

boss, san makakahanap ng hiking group na pwedeng salihan? super interested ako sa sport, cyclista ako but i want to do other things too such as this..
I also feast on sa Pizza Volante and Zola sa Session Road before and after a climb, when time permits. Affordable on both, imagine solo cheese pizza, fries, bottle of SML and mango cottage cheese pie for only P208.
wow congrats, nainggit ako bigla. sarap bumalik, hehehe. tara sir vhin, revenge climb tayo!
