Watwatworld Friendship and Discovery Climb 5

pulag 1The 5th watwatworld friendship climb was a success! We had good food and great company. I was excited meeting them for the first time early morning last Saturday. We had introductions and proceeded to the DENR Parks office for the mandatory orientation. After an hour, we went to have lutong bahay breakfast at Manang Gina’s and after eating I distributed the group tshirts and the trail food I prepared the night before. By 11:00am we were at the Ranger station and by 11:20 we started to walk going up Camp 1. By 12:20 we ate lunch at Camp 1 and by 1:00pm we continued walking up the mountain. By 3:30pm we were setting up our tents at camp site 2. After we have set camp, They braved the cold wind and went up the tower site to witness the sunset. By the time they came back, i already finished cooking the pork sinigang for dinner and hot coffee and tea was available. We all had an early rest. By 9:00pm, it was lights out. We woke up 2:00am and had coffee/energen. by 3:00am we started to climb going up the Summit.We enjoyed every minute of the great Pulag sunrise! By 8:00am, we were back at the camp site and had our breakfast. By 12:00N we were back at the Ranger station, gave tips and thanked our porters and guides. Then we went back to Manang Gina’s for lunch. I requested them to cook Pinikpikan and vegetables for the group…. wow! the soup was soothing! After eating, we went to Badec sulfer springs and Ambuclao dam for some photo ops. By 5:00pm we were back at Baguio City and it was time to say goodbye. What I love about this group was their down to earth character. I was with Atty’s, Col’s, Maj’s, Capt’s, Lt., and i never felt their ranks breathing on my shoulders..it was more of a family outing. Again, thank you very much for trusting in watwatworld. I hope to see you guys again in another great adventure!
