You see the mountain on the right side our Guide Mang Rene said that they are going to have that opened and make a trail so that hikers could traverse. There are so many trail variations But the fastest way to reach the Summit is the trail in the middle part, Its a challenging, 60-degree trail before the peak

A lot of Bayabas trees along the way and duhat.

Mababait ang guide ikukuha ka pa nila ng Bayabas at Ihahatid ka sa sakayan 🙂

Burot Beach is just one out of a thousand untouched beach in the Philippines.

Its untouched so that means no electricity no structures to expect. Its beautiful for people who appreciate the beauty without society in it.

The best experience is the island hopping the Sandbar , Mini Boracay and the Jelly Fish Island.

Burot Beach was bought by a business man in the Philippines but its still open for public as of now.

So better hurry up before they build buildings at the beach.

11196351_1089747161042068_7614851194351872548_n A lot of tree crossing on the new trail. The trail is clear and guides are not required but they will still insist that you get one specially for first timers. Nothing to worry about the sun burning your skin because the way up is covered by trees and more trees along the way until you reach the campsite.

We took our first groupie picture and continue trekking.  If you reach this area that means you’re getting close to the campsite,  This photos are captured from the Campsite. We ate our lunch and continue taking pictures under the heat of the sun and when were ready to go to the summit  but there’s Halo-Halo for sale so we ate first. There are lot of mountaineers taking photos on this area and using the Summit and Monolith as there background. CAMPSITE hlo This photo at the right 11139968_1089735394376578_4771479106977309333_n were taken beside a big flat rock a cliff at the area where there are chairs made by bamboos , while waiting for other climbers to descend from the summit .

If you are confident enough to climb the steep terrain standing up then go on, Its a lot easier standing than crawling your way up. The summit has 360-degree view of the surroundings..

Climbing the rock peak is challenging thrilling and requires a bit of bouldering but is something to be proud of once completed

This part is the one and only way to the Monolith and traverse to Old trail, But there’s the cliff so you have to sit and slowly move your butt down

The 5 seconds terrifying climb to Monolith, I took the picture before I go down I’m waiting for others to climb  there way up. This is my selfie photo using the selfie stick on top of the Monolith, I was alone when I climb my way up after the breath taking climb there’s a guy peaking and said gusto niyo po ng tulongI said ” Ok lag po .

Then after a few seconds It was over actually I thought there is another set of cliff but its over and I saw a girl and said Congratulations ate.

Naparing Bataan

naparingBaranggay Naparing Bataan

Dinalupihan is a first class municipality in the province of Bataan, Philippines. It is the only land-locked municipality of the province.

 

“Dinalupijan” came from the festival rights of “Aeta” pygmies. To commemorate their idol “Idianalo”, the goddess of hunting and bountiful harvest.”Indianalo” was paired with the Sanskrit word “jann”, meaning paradise. Indianlopijann was the name given to the land that the “Aetas” received from their goddess which translates to Indianolo’s paradise

Naparing is just one out of 47 barangays in Bataan. We visited this place whenever there is a long vacation or we have leaves available.

Bataan is a  province it means some  houses here specially the one at the  top of the hill it doesn’t have electricity and water the nearest mall in town is at Olonggapo or Subic.

How did we spent our New year’s eve vacation?
