Based on our personal correspondences and news reports, the following mountains are currently affected (damaged trails, devastated communities, OR impeded access) I am currently on community immersion in San Juan, Batangas and I only have sporadic internet access. Please help me with information by commenting on this post.
DISCLAIMER: These tidbits go only to the best of my knowledge. Most are second-hand information and should at best be advisory. I hope this helps:
Mt. Batulao – okay but muddy
Mt. Romelo – okay but muddy
Mt. Arayat – flooded slopes
Mountains in Tarlac
Bakun Trio – Halsema still unstable
Mt. Pinatubo – still under repair yung trail
Please be guided accordingly.
PS: Fortunately, we have not received news of any mountaineering-related accidents during the onslaught and aftermath of Typhoons ‘Ondoy’ and ‘Pepeng’.
