Mt. Talamitam

Last holiday I spent my free day being one with nature. It's been awhile when I first experienced the beauty of the mountain. Let the trail begin! :) 

Talamitam is a mountain that had a more glorious past. It was named after the talamitam trees that used to grow on its slopes – a reminder of the time when Talamitam had lush vegetation and untarnished ecosystems. Today, it is a bald mountain, but efforts are underway to rehabilitate the peak with tree planting.

We started our hike with a good weather. The trail was muddy  and slippery though because it rained the night before.  

We  passed  a variation of trails, from woodland to grassland and plateau. 

 As we were getting closer to the peak,I looked around and was speechless with the view of Mt. Batulao.  

After an hour of hiking we reach this plateau where cows and horses graze. It was lovely view until the rain started to pour. Thankfully before reaching the summit the rain stopped.

It may look like a simple hill but climbing it isn't as easy as it looks. 
Note: Don't ever underestimate a mountain.

You don't see these picturesque scenery every day right? It's truly God's wonderful creation at its purest form and it's just His awesome master piece!

Capping off our dayhike Sir GM gave us wonderful treat.... ICECREAM! I didn't expect that I will love the Langka (Jackfruit) flavored icecream but it tasted great!

It was supposed to be a twin hike to Mt. Batulao but because of the gloomy sky, the foggy weather, the muddy trail and a little bit of rain made us decide not to push the twin hike. Perhaps, next time when the weather approves, we will be able to do it. 

Group PEAK-ture! :D The whole hike was filled with fun and laughter because of this company! Until the next summit!

Mountains never cease to amaze me! 
And like with any mountain in the Philippines, the view from the top did not disappoint, it was worth the sweat! (ang daming fog nga lang :D)

“I look up to the mountains: does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.” (Psalm 121:1-2)
