Viewpoint: I hope that all organizers will limit the number of participants to 30 at a time

I hope that all hiking clubs and tour operators in the Philippines will limit the number of participants to 30 persons at any time, in any climb, in any mountain. Masyado nang marami ang hikers and we need to regulate ourselves, instead of waiting for the DENR to set limits. Why 30? Because it’s a safe number that I think most people will agree on. In the past, I have also organized some hikes that exceeded this number. I will not do so again. An important part of hiking is learning from your mistakes and I have listened to many points of view before articulating this position. With respect and humility, I hope that others too will follow this limit that I think will ultimately be for the good of our beloved mountains and our country :)
