Mt. Sembrano - Biglaang Dayhike for Me

Mt. Sembrano, Brgy. Malaya, Pililia, Rizal


Tinawag ko itong biglaan sa dahilang wala pa talaga akong planong umakyat that weekend...Medyo masakit pa ang mga binti at hita ko dahil sa pag-akyat ko ng Mt. Tapulao...But a chat con with a climbing buddy, Ka Freddie...nabuo agad yung plano na umakyat ng Mt. Sembrano...warm up daw nya para sa nalalapit nyang climb...since dalawa lang kaming nag-usap nag-imbita na rin ako ng mga dating kasama and I invited a couple of our climb buddies but only Jc and Gilda replied positively...hahaha...mga gala talaga!...And it turns out with a very exciting climb...
Before,... every time na may akyat ako, I always check google about the mountain I'm about to climb. But this time, I did not check Mr. Google about Sembrano...Ganun talaga siya ka biglaang lakad...and having a very comfortable climbing buddies, I did not feel any hesitation or whatsoever about the climb. Instead, I got so excited because this is my first time that I will climb Mt. Sembrano...
Every time I climb, I always felt the weakest link among the group...that is why my "baby walk" term was created....pero kahit anong pagod ko, kapag nakikita ko ang ganda ng kabundukan, napapasigla ako nito at napapamangha....
Mother nature realy makes me amazed and overwhelmed....nanghihinayang man ako sa mga nakalipas na panahon, still I am very thankful because I still have a chance to see and feel this magnificent God's Creation...

Since my last climb was just a week ago...I can still feel a little pain on my feet and legs. Assuming that if I did this climb, maybe the pain will lessen or it might get immune to climbing. But unfortunately...my pre-assumtion did not happened. Instead, I suffered from a leg cramp....Ouch! It's painful!... This is my first time I felt that pain. Unti-unting naninigas ang binti ko....Aww!...di ako makasigaw kasi may mga nakakasalubong kami. Take note...I can still say the trail courtesy...."Good morning sir/ma'am"...hahahaha....while Jc cannot touch my foot because he doesn't know what to do. He just uttered..."Ano? Ano nangyayari sa'yo ma'am Weng? And I answered him with a low voice..."ang paa ko...ang paa ko"...Looking at sir Jc...he did not know what to do...So I just stand and put my body weight on my foot which is suffering from a cramp. At naibaluktot ko ito and I felt more relax. Whew! akala ko di ko na mailalakad ang mga paa ko...worried enough because we are only on the one-third part of the trail. Ayokong maging dahilan ng climb failure....that is a big no, no to me....

Some photos of the trail I encountered...
































Place where you can take a rest and buy fresh buko







The part of the trail which I got my leg cramp....




 Medyo matarik ang part na ito ang you realy need an additional force on your leg....parang ang sarap bumalik sa buco station and drink more buco juice...hahahaha....But we are enjoying the trail...With this, I can say na talagang iba-iba ang katangian ng bawat bundok na aakyatin mo...that is why mountaineers are always excited every time they will climb a new mountain...Different feeling of excitement ...different mountain to climb....different kind of experience to treasure in your life...



Trails getting closer to summit....so...so...excited!



the place where we took our lunch break and meet some new fellow hikers

Another precious moment happened in my life, and as I always says...Thanks to our Creator, he is so kind to me for giving me this experience and see his creation before I can truely can't do it someday...
And as a return...I am happy and humbly sharing this experience to all of you...on my Byaheng Jologs way....
Kaya tara na....Byaheng Jologs na!!!

Special thanks to my climbing buddies...Jc Sabio of ReadyJCGo, Gilda Tarlit and Ka Freddie
