I have first climbed Mt Napulauan in 2012. This is my first mossy forest encounter and the moments and feelings I have inside the mountain lingers with me for so long. Since then, I had been to many enchanting forest and deep jungle floor, and nothing can compare to the same thrill I have for the first time I engulfed in the forest of Mt Napulauan.

We stayed at the Municapal Hostel in Hungduan. We spend our first day, bonding and connecting with each other. And this experience made us all closer and comfortable with one another, even after the climb, we are still connected as friends.

We all arrived in Hungduan Jump off wet and cold, but still laughing and smiling as we talked our experiences on the trail.
They say its about the view, sea of clouds, mountains nearby or some others things you fancy every time you hike.
For us, its all about the people your hiking with. Its all about the connection and friendship you build along the way that really matters. Someday, we can forget all about the views and challenges that the mountain brings, but the people we have shared the journey with, will forever stay in our hearts and mind long before the journey ends.
Our humble team :
Special thanks goes Janice ( our host ) Jascel Bugan, Weng Sicat, and to our two guides. Who all helped us to make this hike happened.
