Backpacking in the Philippines
Backpacking, Hiking and Mountaineering is my life. I have spent more than 16 years exploring the Philippine Islands- it's mountains in particular. I belong to an organization I co-founded: www.metropolitanms.org.
The Philippines is a rich hiking destination. Born out of fire, the islands were shaped by volcanic activities- thus the landscape is dotted by mountains- old volcanoes. It offers exotic jungle flora and fauna. It may not have the altitude of the great mountains but it has a unique characteristic of its own that I have classified it as a new activity on its own- Tropical Mountaineering! The experience is exhilirating on all aspects- body, mind and soul!
