The trail was simple – you just have to hike up a flight of stairs. For seven hours. With a full, at least 8kgs pack. Hello Mt. Amuyao.
I can’t give you the details because our trip was handled by Weekend Wanderlust where we paid PHP3,600 for everything (transpo, food, guide fees. We had to rent a tent at PHP200 per tent good for 2 pax).
- Don’t bring too much water. There’s a water source near the summit.
- Be prepared for the cold. I was wearing gloves, bonnet, one heat-tech base layer, fleece jacket, shell jacket and three layers of socks (two of which are heat-tech) and I was still cold.
- Practice going up the stairs. Haha.
We had a side trip at the Banaue Rice Terraces and boy was it amazing.
That’s it for Mt. Amuyao – Barlig backtrail. Hopefully I’ll get to do the traverse in a few years! 🙂
