@annamariaalba Last Saturday, I finally got to climb and summit my home mountain, Mt. Matutum in South Cotabato via the Keumang Trail a.k.a. Kamang -- word for crawl in my dialect -- Trail. The trail was so steep and unrelenting, it made the Mt Pulag Akiki a.k.a Killer Trail look like a walk in the park!
Two days later, I'm still sooo tired and aching all over. And it's now the most challenging dayhike I've ever done.
But it was all worth it. As always, the best climbs are the hardest. And I'm so glad it's this mountain under whose shadow I was born and raised. 😊
