First Summit: Mt. Batulao, Nasugbu, BatangasMonday, August 19, 2013
We chose Batulao because of the proximity and the budget of course. From the blogs I read, it was a good mountain to climb for beginners like us. You can also check out our expenses at the bottom of the post.
The hardest part of the climb for me is not going through the peaks but walking from the foot of the mountain going up the first peak. It was so muddy! I'm telling you, I slide like 3 times! But I welcomed every fall. It was an experience I needed and wanted to have. The mud looks "clean" anyway (like mud can ever be clean at all.) At least lupa, hindi burak gaya ng baha sa Metro Manila.
