Mount Caniaw View of Ilocos

After feasting a lot during the holidays and filling up the tummy much, I thought I needed to do some exercise and trimming down.

While last month, I joined a fun run, now, it's time to climb.


Picture below is Mount Caniaw and if you see the one that is encircled, is where we will be in just a few hours...

It's a 2-hour climb but we did it just a bit longer. Mount Caniaw is located at Bantay, Ilocos Sur. It's usually called by the natives as "radar" as the term would say is the home of radio, cable and communication of the province. We started the trail at about 8am in Tay-ac Bantay.


Although this is my third time to climb the Philippine Mountains, my first was Trekking to Aninuan Falls in Puerto Galera and second is Sunrise and Sunset at Gulugod Baboy in Batangas, I was a bit uneasy because its a road less travelled. We're not too familiar of living creatures round there and what's up for us. Still we dared.


We din't have our breakfast so when we reached the top about 10am, we were a bit starving already. While enjoying the view, we had our simple breaklunch. Some few towns of Ilocos below is seen.


This is Abra of the Cordillera Administrative Region, the other side of Ilocos.


I felt so much pain on my feet going down. I think I'm not use to it anymore but I still wanna do this next time. Kulang lang sa exercise, so I'm gonna prepare for it. ;)
