To our beloved fellow mountaineers, our group TGMC is inviting you to be part our 2nd OUTDOOR MADNESS 2011. Daet Camrines Norte:) This time we’ll be going to Mt. Balagbag & Isla Calaguas of Camarines at the Northernmost part of Bicolandia. Daet Camarines Norte is approximately 6-7 hours travel time from Manila.

Mt. Balagbag is known as “The Sleeping Giant” 997 above sea level summit. It takes about 6 hrs trekking & multiple river crossing to reach thue camp site and another 3 hrs. to summit.
After descent from Balagbag, we will continue our activity in an unknown paradise that can rival the white sand beach of Boracay and the serenity of Pagudpud, still virgin and unspoiled- the beautiful and enchanting ISLA DE CALAGUAS!!!
Mark your calendars! See ya!!!!
