Mt Kupapey Dayhike in Bontoc

It was 4:30 o’clock in the morning when we started to trek going to the summit of Mt. Kupapey (also known as Mt. Kufafey). This mountain is 1647 MASL, with trail difficulty of 3/9. The summit will offer an overlooking view of majestic Maligcong Rice Terraces and amazing sea of clouds.

The first 500 meters was cemented and the rest was forest trail. We were a little bit sleepy and chillin as we passed along the dark trail. Make sure that you have head lamp or flashlight when going to Mt. Kupapey. You can also use the flashlight of your mobile phone. It will be only your source of light before the sunrise. There’s no major assault, everything was smooth. I can say this is one of the easiest mountain to climb in Mountain Province. I don't feel difficulty in breathing and there's no pain on my legs and feet when we reached the summit. Trekking time is around 1-2 hours.

Maligcong Rice Terraces: The Wonderful Gem of Bontoc

Bontoc is capital of the province of Mountain Province, Philippines which is home of the Bontoc tribe. This municipality boasts rich culture and heritage as well beautiful destinations like Maligcong Rice Terraces which built a thousand years ago.

On our first day in Bontoc, we headed to its famous rice terraces. Our host and guide, Kuya Joseph guided us going to Maligcong Rice Terraces. The jump off / point entry was near in our accommodation, Maligcong Chen's Homestay. The trek was smooth and no pressure at all. I thought rice terraces can only be found in Ifugao province (Banaue / Batad Rice Terraces), but hey, Bontoc has their own version of rice terraces. This living cultural landscape offers beautiful view of mountains and towering pine trees.

5 Reasons Why I Love Kamiseta Hotel

Kamiseta Hotel is one of the unique hotels in the City of Pines. This beautiful structure has a scenic view of the city and surrounded with towering pine trees. If you're familiar with Kamiseta, a clothing brand that features cool casual classic woman apparel, their store has the same look inside the hotel.

Here are the following reasons why I want to stay again in Kamiseta Hotel:

1. The Gorgeous Lobby

The overwhelming look of their lobby gives a wonderful experience for thier guests. The set up is a French inspired theme that features lovely pieces of furniture, chandeliers and mirrors. I loved the floral detail on wall that makes the area more stunning. The overall interior is totally different from other hotels  in Baguio.

The Sandugo Eiger On A Muddy Dayhike

Some of the travelers are now switching from bulky boots to lightweight shoes for their outdoor activities. Lightweight shoes will keep you energized all the time while walking up and down hills, and on rough terrain mountain. I personally love to use lightweight shoes because it's more comfy and lighter compare to traditional bulky boots. One of the most trusted local shoe brands that I regularly use is Sandugo

I started to use my new Sandugo Eiger on a extremely muddy day hike in Mount Binacayan. The hike was vertical, rocky, muddy and slippery, but my Sandugo shoes was still performed well. It's one of  the best lightweight shoes I used so far. And for the price at P1995, it's the most affordable quality hiking footwear in the market at the moment.
