Sleepless Hike: Mt. Cayabu/Mt. Maynuba, Tanay, Rizal Dayhike


Hiking outside my hometown is very tiring. Aside from the hike itself, the travel from Baguio City to the Jump Off is quite a ride. Traveling from Baguio to Manila via Bus took me about 6 hours to arrive at our meeting place somewhere in Cubao, Quezon City where the group that I will be joining will meet.

The assembly time at the meeting place is 11:00 pm on the 28th of January 2017, so I traveled from Baguio City in the early morning of the 28th to avoid Manila traffic. Before I head to the meeting place, since it is still scheduled at 11:00 pm, I met some of my friends near the area, had some coffee and small talks to kill the time.

I arrived at the meeting place few minutes after 11:00 pm. The group waited for the vans to arrive and departed the area at around 12:30 am on the 29th of January. Since I’m quite tired, I slept in the van, thinking that the trip will be long enough for me to rest. However, I was wrong, very wrong! We arrived at the jump-off point located at Tanay, Rizal few minutes after 2:00 am and started the hike at around 3:00 am.

Even if the hike is just for beginners, I am not prepared that we will start the hike at dawn and the trail is very muddy, the weather condition is very windy, and drizzling. Weeeew! That’s quite challenging. Considering the fact that I didn’t have a good sleep. Hahaha Moreso, I was still able to conquer the 7-hour hike including photo ops, chats, and rests.

Below are my shots for a cloudy, gloomy, windy, and muddy hike. πŸ™‚

  1. I’ve been there too but your pictures are so awesome! two thumbs up! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you kcy! πŸ™‚

    2. DO you have pictures kung saan maraming bamboos? It’s ideal for a painting (got the guts to make it as a reference for my next one) but haven’t had a chance to take good ones since madilim nung time na andun kami.

      1. Are you referring dun sa bamboos na nasa Mt Maynuba/Cayabu? I think wala akong nakuha. Madilim din nung time na yun kasi.. huhu Pero I think meron akong bamboo picture somewhere sa batangas ata yun. don’t know kung magfit for your painting. If so, feel free to get it as your reference.

        1. around Mt. Maynuba, if tama yung pagkakatanda ko, nasa descent na yun, near the lowest falls. aww. nice! May I use the picture as a reference for my next painting?

          1. Yes I remember.. Oo nga bakit di ako kumuha ng picture dun. Maybe I was too tired to take a photo na. hahaha

            yes you can use that one. πŸ™‚ No problem. Where can I see your paintings btw? πŸ™‚

          2. yeah maybe, haviing no enough rest in a hike is already exhausting. I’ll be posting it on my instagram if I’m done with it and sure’ll be crediting you for the photo πŸ™‚ It would probably take months since I’m currently finishing one big proj. Thank you very much Michael! husay! πŸ˜€
