I mention this guidebook to illustrate the long history of Action Asia Magazine’s involvement in documenting and featuring adventure destinations in the Philippines. And for its current March-April 2013, I am honored to be a contributor in Asia’s leading outdoor magazine. In “Islands in the Sky: Top Peaks of the Philippines”, I feature a sampling of what the Philippines has to offer in terms of hiking adventures, and I wrote of Apo, Guiting-Guiting, Pulag, Amuyao, Bulusan, Dulang-Dulang & Kitanglad, Mayon, and Kanlaon, trying to be as geographically representative as possible. The other articles in the magazine are likewise hiking-oriented, including a story about an exciting ridge crossing in Japan that kinda reminds me of Taiwan’s Holy Ridge.
I thank Steve White, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, for his patience and understanding, and for gracing our Mt. Purgatory hike last December (see Hiking matters #317-318). I look forward to doing Mt. Guiting-Guiting with him in the future!
