Who’s your favorite mountain guide in the Philippines?

Who’s your favorite mountain guide in the Philippines? Personally, I’ve climbed with a lot of guides all around the country and I can speak highly of many of them, including Tatay Emilio who is seen here at the summit of Mt. Sicapoo.
Here are some responses on the PM Facebook page. Share your own favorites with us by commenting!

@Mauk Bihag: The Estelloso brothers, Rey and Boy, of Mt. Kanlaon are, hands down, the best guides. If this topic had a poll, they’d already be breaking away, hehehe. I look forward to going back to Kanlaon and the other mountains of Negros with them.

@Ronnie Galino: the 13-yr old boy named Wilson of Mt. Batulao…napakabait at napakasipag…pagkahatid nya sa min sa hway…tumambay ulit sya para hintayin ang mga susunod na grupong aakyat.kindly donate all excess canned goods and foods sa family nya…malaking tulong yun.

@Mario Baldazo Igna: si rey estelloso guide ko mt kanlaon way back 1995 during my solo climb ok naguide at kabuddy buddy tga guintubdan lacarlota city siya ang inyong hanapin re Mt Kanalaon mabait siya at reliable namention sa reader digest maganzine during the mt kanlaon eruption nung may namatay na english man….

@Carmel Lim Torres: Sir Romy Daroca of Basco, Batanes. We climbed Mt. Iriya and Mt. Matarem all in one day. The best sya :)

@Jeshua Sales: si Toto at Tatay Remy ng Mt. Guiting-Guiting din :)
