Mantalongon-Kawasan Cross Country Hike


I’m quite excited for this weekend’s cross country hike from Mantalongon, Dalaguete to Kawasan Falls in Badian. From Eastern Cebu will be heading to Western Cebu.

It’s just a minor climb but I definitely miss hiking and going in an adventure. The last time I hiked was last April when we climbed Mt. Kitanglad in Bukidnon. I definitely need a diversion. It’s been all work for me the past few weeks.

The Mantalongon-Kawasan Cross Country hike is an annual activity in our club. This is the first minor climb for our new applicants in the club after the BMC (Basic Mountaineering Course). The first time I made the Mantalongon-Kawasan Cross Country Hike was in the year 1999 when I was still an applicant of the USC-Mountaineers and since then I’ve only missed it once. The only time I missed it was in 2004 when I went to Malapascua instead of joining the climb.

I’m looking forward taking a lot of pictures this time. I already had my digicam last year but I only got a 16MB of memory ( I only had the memory card that came along with the camera) so I wasn’t able to take a lot pictures. It’s been raining the past few days I just hope the weather will be fine today and tomorrow. I hope the sky will be clear during the hike.
