According to a veteran guide Nong Dimas, there is (Tinagong Dagat)…If you wanted an exploratory climb as well as seeing for your eyes the mystical madja-as and its mystical creatures (as guides have spoken)…explore it for yourself. Try to look for a sigbin among others and the lake and tell us your experiences for the awareness of everyone much more of Antiqueños about there mystical rainforest. Just seek a guide old enough to experience everything about Madja-as trails and its long told story to avoid being lost without trace on Madja-as trail :)

mahirap i summit ang baloy daku. no established trail at walang true guide na mkapagtestify na nka punta na talaga sa ituktok ng baloy dako. only hanggang baloy gamay lang. ang major obstacle…makapal na ulap or clouds literally chasing every brave soul to cross the saddle papunta sa baloy daku…
