I am definitely not an active person. However, I am often thrilled with trying out different kinds of activities which give me adrenaline rush,such as diving,bungee jumping or trekking and so I’ve decided to join my officemates on a trek/ hike to Mount Mauyog. I have heard about it through social media.
Mt. Mauyog has a towering height of 1,027 meters above sea level. It is also one of the popular hiking destinations my province (Cebu )because of its human brain look-like formation. Hikers usually visit this place and proceed to Mt Manunggal or vice versa for a day hike.
NOBODY SAID IT WAS EASY!! 😂 It was a totally not an easy climb.Ascending required endurance.I/we were undoubtedly catching our breath. You need to be always careful, when walking in rough narrow path. Steep slopes, sharp ridges and even wild plants with thorns. Descending was a tough one as well. You really needed to take extra caution because the path was slippery, two of my friends slipped, luckily my other friends were quick enough to catch them. I couldn’t describe my movements though but I tell you, in some instance you need to use both your hands, streched your legs and arms (like almost crawling) 🤣 . 💪🏼
✅ HOW TO GET THERE
👉🏼 From Ayala Cebu Terminal, take vhire ride bound to Balamban (P.S. Don’t forget to tell the driver or conductor to drop you at crossing or jump off to curong Curong, Balamban) Or Barangy Sunog
👉🏼 From Crossing to Brgy. Sunog, take a Habal-Habal (Motorcycle) to Brgy. Sunog. Note: Tell the driver to drop you at Mt Mauyog starting point to register for your safety. Pay disturbance fee and guide
👉🏼 At Mt. Mauyog starting point there is a house where we answered call of nature and got ready together with our 2 guides.
We didn’t climb Mt Manunggal because we were already exhausted 😂. We rested and relaxed in BAGUIO DE CEBU.
I really loved the ambiance of this place.The place can be cool to colder and you can see fogs around.
The place offers:
SKY BIKING 🚴♀️. Horse back riding 🐎 Camping ⛺️
My friends sky biked and I think they were able to haggle with the price,since there were only few people at that time. My sister and I sat in a small store(cafe?) 🤣 where we ordered coffee and cup noodles.
P.S [I couldn’t give elaborate details about Baguio de Cebu,since I didn’t ask the staffs about the place.You better search first before going there 👍🏼]
