The day I was judged.

Rumors has it that sinners won't be able to get out of the cave. 
I was sure that once, twice, thrice, heck many times, I've sinned. I got out without scrapes, but that cave really is something.


I am not exaggerating when I say that my trip to Mt. Banahaw is my most fulfilling trip yet. It wasn't my first time to tread mountains since I was a girl scout back in grade school and high school. However it was my first time to go inside a cave.

Josh and Jen <3
People I don't know, but were my friends along the way
It was my first time to go inside a cave (I think?) When the guides told me that we were going in a cave, I imagined it to be like the caves in movies where you'll find stalagmites and stalactites, or even a river (Okay, I may be watching too many movies). Contrary to what I was expecting, it was a mere hole, a MERE HOLE in the mountain. GYAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAH!!!

Please, if you are claustrophobic or unsure of your stamina, flexibility, and agility in falling, climbing, jumping, crawling, disgusting- lol jk I mean getting dirty, then do not be a burden to the group, and spare yourself from getting trapped inside. Okay? But seriously, it was a thrilling experience.

The rain made it more awesome, the mountain was slippery and full of mud. I really felt that I was one with nature (okay, ang corny ko, haha)

Drenched from sweat and the rain, we just jumped in the water despite wearing jeans and all

I was really happy that I joined this trip. Try visiting the Husgado Cave in Mt. Banahaw. If it's your first time too, I recommend having a guide from the town, the mountain is full of surprises and mysteries :) People were a bit exaggerated when they said that my bag/camera kit won't fit inside, sigh, I don't have photos inside the cave because I left my things with the guides. Still, happy! HAHAHA


  1. mhirap po b ung dadaanan dun sa mt.banahaw?nttkot kse ako umakyat bka di ko kya..

    1. Hi! Depende kasi yun eh. Ako, nadalian lang kasi medyo fit ako. Kung kaya mong magwall-climbing, madali lang yun :) Kung hindi naman, basta sundin mo lang yung sinasabi ng guides sa loob ng cave, basta bawal maarte sa loob, gapang kung gapang, lundag kung lundag, talon kung talon :) Try mo!

      Magpants ka para di ka magasgasan
