Packed and Ready | Mindanao 1-2-3

At last, my long wait will soon come to an end. In 4 days' time, I will fly to Mindanao and embark on a 12-day expedition on some of the highest mountains in the country - the mountains Apo, Dulang-Dulang and Kitanglad, (the first, second and fourth highest peaks in the Philippines).

Mindanao is the second largest island of the Philippines, where you have possibilities to explore tropical forest. Most tourists stay in a cheap hotel in Davao, the largest city in Mindanao. For those who seek adventure, the Island offers activities such as jungle tracking and climbing the highest mountain of the Philippines.

I already have my round trip plane tickets, all the necessary arrangements for the climbs are set (thanks to my friends for organizing the climbs: Jay for the Talomo-Apo MegaTraverse, and Agnes for the D2K Traverse), my 12-days worth of stuff are already packed in my 55L backpack. Basically, I am just waiting for the big day to finally come, hurrah I'm really really excited for this! I just hope the weather will cooperate.
