Mt. Talamitam & Mt. Apayang: Hiking Two Mountains in One Day Part 2

Happy start of the week everyone!
It's been a busy week since we are on vacation over the weekend.
We attended the Panagbenga Festival in Baguio and it is amazing.
I cannot wait to share with you my 1st-time experience there.
Anyways, I would like to share with you the second part and the continuation of my adventure at Nasugbu, Batangas.
Can you believe that we hike two mountains in one day?
Well, that's just pretty amazing!
When we reached the summit of Mt. Talamitam, we didn't get much of the view and as I stated on my last blog that is it quite foggy upon reaching it.
We take chances on taking photos when the fog is away from our place.
We take a rest for a while, enjoyed the view and savor the cold breezy weather.
Then, we proceed hiking its twin mountain, the Mt. Apayang.
Even though we are already tired; nothing keeps us from moving forward.
We hike the mountain for 20 minutes and as we reached the summit, the happiness and accomplishment are undying.
We are very happy that we are able to conquer two mountains in a day.
The view is breathtaking and you can view the previous mountain we visited on the other side, the Mt. Talamitam.
Then, we descend from the mountain afterward because we are a bit hungry as we not yet taken our lunch.
This is the easiest part and fulfilling experience when we are about to depart the mountain.
Upon the experience, I would like to share with you some tips when hiking these mountains:
* Take a heavy breakfast before hiking the mountains - this is one of the common tips that is very helpful that keeps your energy alive during the hike.
* Bring 2L of water - it is not an easy trail so better bring water to keep you hydrated.
* Bring trail mix, nuts or any mini size food - this will also keep you going and keeps your energy at most.
* Wear comfortable clothes - don't wear anything that you will not feel comfortable and it is advisable that you bring jacket, hat & use hiking shoes.
* Bring lightweight back and pack light - it is not easy to hike with heavy loads that can also make your hiking harder.
* Bring a hiking stick - this is a tip from a local tour guide and he said that it is very convenient especially when it's too steep.
* Have fun - I think this is the most important that everyone should enjoy and happy with what they are doing.
That's pretty sums up our great adventure in these two mountains and I can't wait to share it with you my Vlog.
How do you find this adventure?
Let me know what you think.
Thanks for reading.
Have a great week.
