Warning: there are going to be photos of me in this post. Mwehehe. If you know me (and if you have been reading this blog for sometime (if not, welcome! 😀 (and there are too many parenthesis going on))), you know that I don’t post photos of myself much here. I like to remain anonymous or maybe, just maybe, I’m lazy to take photos. Haha. Enough explanation and back to the real post. So yeah, there would be photos of my buddies and I here. This place was picturesque that’s begging for those group photos or solo shots. And yes, any angle was just breathtaking.
It’s advisable to bring a car or a van here. The place isn’t accessible, and taking a commute here might be a challenge. It’s also advisable to make a reservation way way ahead especially if you’re aiming to go during the weekend. We went here last April but made the reservation and full payment October of last year. Talk about 6 months in the making! Not sure how the weekday trips fare but that might have more luck in terms of schedule. Minimum number of guests per visit is up to 7 with a maximum of 14. Price differs (as it might have changed overtime) but regardless of that, the price would remain at the minimum group rate if there’s less than 7 in your group.
Before heading out to the actual hike, we were given an overview first of the place. Rules were laid out too. A guide was assigned to us all throughout the trip. With our protective gear on, it was time to head out to nature! 😀
Ah…the great outdoors! It took us a good 4 hours to tour the whole place. We could have finished earlier but the group before us was a big one so we had to wait a couple of times before the next stop. The weather cooperated that time with some slight drizzle here and there. After that semi-tiring hike, it was now time for some food! Yeah! This is included in the package. They served a light snack that was perfect ending for the trail.
To be honest, the photos I took probably didn’t give much justice to this beautiful place. One has to be there to take all of nature’s beauty in. It was simply refreshing and energizing to be here. Imagine breathing in unpolluted air and forgetting life’s mundane problems. All were possible here. It made me all the more appreciate His creations and wonders. Ah…I wish I could go back. If I just close my eyes, I can imagine myself looking at that marvelous expanse. Being here just makes one feel alive, relaxed and blissful.
