Checklist ng mga bala para sa malupit na akyat baba sa bundok at sapa:
- honey in sachets
- hydrite in sachets
- orange juice 1 Liter
- tubig – as many as you can!
- hopia <<< ito ang tunay na life-saver!
- salt sachets ng McDonalds <bibili ko ng french fries si Cyril>
Wag na wag:
- iced tea ng green leaf
- red tea (hibiscus)
- tomato paste 1/4 cup
- yogurt 8 oz
- carrot juice 3/4 cup
- spinach (cooked) 1 cup
Mabagal na pacing. 10 minuto hanggang 14 minuto lang bawat kilometro. Mas mabilis pag pababa. Konting effort lang pag paakyat.
Kailangang makapagpalit ng shoes at medyas pag lampas ng mahabang sapa or magdala ng pamunas para tuyuin ang paa.
Malupit ang KM 20 hanggang 30. Dapat wala ka ring patawad. Aktuwali, malupit ang ruta pagpasok ng trail. Iwasan magmadali sa road.
Mas mabuting maglublob sa malamig na falls bago bumalik. Sige, wag mo subukan. 🙂 Makikita mo.
Mas magaang ang bitbit, mas mabuti.
Magbalot ng sarili para sa init at lamig. Malamig ang simula – at mainit ang katapusan.
Note: ang KATAPUSAN ay hindi END-OF-THE-MONTH
Magbaon ng maraming panalangin at tiyaga. Pag wala ka nang kasabay – talk to Jesus! 🙂
Gamitin lahat ng pwedeng gamitin (hehehe – mata lang ok na!) para hindi maligaw. Maraming markers pero dapat mong makita at alam mong sumunod. Lumiko sa tamang likuan. Wag dumerecho sa kawalan. Take note!
Uulitin ko. Wag dumerecho sa kawalan…baka malibang ka at tumakbo ka lang ng tumakbo dahil merong tumatakbo sa unahan mo. Hindi lahat ng nasa unahan ay nasa tama! At hindi rin lahat ng ilaw ay kasali. LOLS.
Walang masamang magmatulin – basta tama ang tinatakbuhan!
(wag na wag kakalimutan)
- headlamp na may baterya na tumatagal!
- sun visor at shades pag maliwanag na
- extra handheld flash lights for me na merong bateryang tumatagal! (pektib to!)
- hydration bag na may laman at pwedeng paglagyan ng kung ano anong naka-sachet.
Good luck sa lahat!

Left home @ 11:45pm.
Left cubao @ 1:45am or 2am?
Left Dau @ past 3am.
Reached Sapang Uwak after a long ride of 40 minutes @ near 5am, with a few going down the trike to walk. The road is so beautiful I dare not describe it.
Trek/Walk started at 5:05am. Barangay Sapang Uwak to Miyamit Falls. Minor jog. Walks at most.
Took our time to enjoy at the falls.
After the short swim – we ate our snacks. Masarap pala ang White na Toblerone. LOL. Dala ni Daphne yun. May popcorn din siya at Chips Ahoy. Parang manonood lang ng sine no? LOL
Matapos magbihis (at may gumulong habang nagbibihis!) LOL, picture ulit!
Trek back to Sapang Uwak from Miyamit falls now included a lot of runs – well, jog.
It was already past twelve (12) noon when I reached sapang uwak. I jogged a lot after the last ascent from Miyamit.
Took some time to capture the view in the last 2 kilometers.
I was the 4th to arrive where the trek started. Andun na si Jigz, Emil at Daphne. Tapos na magsopdrink at ngumuya. Sa isang sari sari store bago bumaba. 🙂 May audience pa sila – isang buong pamilya ng katutubong aeta.
The last runner from the group arrived at 12:55pm. After a short while, we left to go back to Manibaug.
Again, there was a short – no, not short, a bit long and super hot walk. Due to the beautiful road.
We then ate at Cely’s, fixed our smells and looks at Mcdo and rewarded our new smell and look with a Sundae. Caution: Pag caramel Sundae, walang tubig na kasama. So, ORDER a Choco Sundae kung ayaw mo mauhaw. LOL
@Dau, a bus was already waiting for me and Jigz. Avenida. Superb movie inside! JOSE RIZAL. LOL. Match that with a teenager on my side who sleeps like he is just at home. No, I will not describe him. Use your imagination na lang.
Finally, at quarter to 6pm, I am HOME. Oh yeah. Daming assignment na nakalista …LOL
