  • Heaven's Trail on Thailand's highest mountain Doi Inthanon is breathtaking. It's worth getting up early to get to the trail before sunrise. Be careful on dark and curvy roads though 😇🌿 #doiinthanon #escaperies #heaventrail

  • Definitely one of the highlights of my weeklong solo backpacking trip across northern Mindanao is hiking through Bukidnon's beautiful ridges.

This time around I was happily joined by a confidant, a constant hiking buddy this year, Jay.

This is supposed to be a walk in the park as they say but it almost put me in the brink of my limitation. It's like Morty telling Rick "Oh man, Oh jeez, we're all fucked up!" Kaanibungan-Lampanag is easy if we are talking about doing it in backtrail passion but doing it in the "forgotten traverse" is pure madness. In my books, it easily toppled Kalatungan-Lumpanag traverse in terms of difficulty.

It's like we did an exploration climb! I can still remember our guide and son of the Datu, Nomer Jr. looking for the trail and doing a lot of bushwhacking as we navigate our way on the steep hellish overgrown thorny vegetation en route to Lampanag and its almost pitch-black. Pure torture! One wrong move and it can quickly seal your doom!

For the first time in a while, I can hear my heart beating and afterall I'm not nuclear-powered as my friends perceived me to be. It really scared the shit out of me.

Sooner I saw our guide doing something that left me in utter disbelief. As he was looking for our way out, he's also looking for spiders locally known as Damang.

Why is he looking for Damang? Spider fighting or derby is blood sport that is very much alive in Sitio Kibuwa, Impalutao, New Ilocos and CEDAR. Tribes like Bukidnons-Higaonon are still into "sabong sa damang". Nostalgic! It really reminds me of my childhood! It really put a smile on my face despite all the hardships.

After dealing the gnarly trail, the next morning we are rewarded with visual treat! 
Why go to Arizona's Horseshoe bend when you can visit our very own Impasugong's Lampanag ridge. This is so CHADA!

  • Very fortunate and glad to be accompanied by the head of ethnic Manobo tribe, Datu Erio as we hike the 5th highest mountain in Philippines earlier this week whose ancestral domain is the mystically beautiful Kalatungan mountain range.

And there is no better person to guide us in this journey than the Datu himself. How cool is that eh?

As a 3rd generation, the 49 year old chieftain and guardian of what they considered sacred place, according to him, one of his primary duty is to climb it bi-monthly to do some inspection or patrol. For this instance, he checked the Dila-dila seedlings they planted between the grassy slopes of Buko-buko sa anay and Muleta falls.

Dila-dila also known as Katmon Dillenia philippinensis is one of 5 tree species which is hyper endemic to this mountain range but now considered threatened.

On the other hand, there's never a dull moment during Datu Erio's watch. Aside from being a joker, he really know everything about his kins dwelling ground. From the etymologies, to the legends of Kalatungan, Lumpanag, Kikikoka, Muleta, Buko-buko sa anay and in betweens. Ask him and he knows it. It pays to be curious and inquisitive.

During our chit chat, he enthusiastically showed me his amulet given to him by his father and now considered distinctive to a Manobo Datu. It is made of 2 interconnected wild boar fangs(which his father killed during the days when the manobos still hunt it for food), ornamented with bells together with a preserved Philippine chestnut(Castanopsis philippinensis) which is growing in abundance along Kalatungan's highland dipterocarp forest.

This kind of experience makes me believe that modern day Filipino chieftain or Datu is still badass.
