Visual Diary: Mt. Pamitinan, Rizal

I was so psyched to climb up another mountain. The whole experience – the energetic start, the ‘why am I doing this to myself’ stage and the ‘thank goodness I’m at the top’ moment – never fails to make me extremely happy. There’s just something about punishing yourself first and then seeing yourself at the top and saying ‘YES, I MADE IT’.

Look at the view!!!

Overall, this Mt. Pamitinan was an easy climb. True, the limestones gave it challenges but the hike itself to the top was a breeze and perfect for beginners. One thing that definitely disappointed me was this spot where the hikers could take their pictures. Apparently, there’s a line and you had to wait for your turn. It took us two hours to get our pictures taken. I would definitely skip this if you’re really there to hike.

  1. I can understand why hiking can be scary before you start, considering you’re reaching a new height, but the feeling after you do it must be so surreal. Looks like it was totally worth it!

  3. The view’s amazing but waiting two hours to get a photo is just insane! Piling this under ‘mountains they said a beginner can hike’, haha! Not yet planning any hikes for the first half of the year. Hopefully, I’ll hike my first one in the second half!

    • Hi Richel (love your blog, just followed you :D)… I promise, this mountain is certainly for beginners. Plus, our whole experience was organized thanks to the great guides and DENR. 🙂
