Default Mt. Pulag Adventure - Hike / Tulak DH RUSH!

Went on an epic adventure with mangenriquez, warcries and alanfb Last Nov. 29-Dec. 1. Ang pakay namin... DH ride from Mt. Pulag Ranger Station to DENR station. Side trip and MangEnriquez's unfinished business is to hike up Mt. Pulag.....




Taking off from my home to meeting place at Balintawak.... i really should learn to pack less..



MangEnriquez’s DIY rack


AlanFB & Warcries … lunch break before we start the climb


Pre ride flat…


Are you ready guys?



Let’s go!

MangEnriquez



Coke break muna

Lalim ng iniisip ni warcries..tibay sleeveless in the cold weather



I only had my cellphone camera for this ride  next time slr or a good quality PS camera dapat



It was really a hard push & ride ascent… but its going to be a great ride down!





Too bad there were only maybe 60% rough terrain, while the rest of the road up was getting concrete facelift. Maybe this will be the last time we see rock gardens here… so sad..




Ate pakuha nga ng picture ko…






Repolyo…




Me and the mountains..

Last climb section:






Wow!




Posing muna with the kids, who cheered me on while I pedaled up, only they were running ahead of me 




Finally at the ranger station




The gang: It took 4+ hours to ascend from DENR base station to the Ranger station even with a short hitch from a truck part of the way.




Recovery drinks muna



Lunch, Big Ligo sardines, CDO corned Beef, Itlog na pula and Tomato
Thanks to our mountaineer friends for this picture..




…. Ubosss!



The master….

MangEnriquez…. Will finally be able to finish what was cut short a few months back….



We originally planned to trek up Mt. Pulag summit in the afternoon, then ride down for the DH fun late afternoon, but by the time we got to the ranger station, it was mid afternoon na. Which means if we pushed through with the original plan, we will have to ride DH in the dark… even if we had lights and protector gears it would be too risky. So we decided to ascent at 1am, check out the sun rise over the clouds then ride down…..
As usual, the hospitality and kind heartedness of our countrymen from the provinces was there for us. ..Ate Cornelia (and her relatives) was our gracious hostess for our stay.





Where we will spend the night




Met new friends (mountaineers) and checked out the sunset




I’ve seen the sun set over the see countless of times …. This is my first time to see it set over clouds…. It made me wonder how even grander the sunrise would be at the peak of the mt.







Kuya preparing our “pinikpikan” chicken dinner…



One of the main features of the house…. Very effective, practical and efficient. Heats up the whole house while it cooks dinner…



Dinner is served…. “Killing me Softly”, and chicken with cabbage soup, thingy …

Dig in guys…. Everyone including the whole house hold shared in this dinner….




My dinner plate….. there’s just something about eating in this white tin, blue rimmed plate….




Time to sleep….




We had to wake up at 12am and climb at 1am…. We were not really prepared for the cold weather.. all I had was a windbreaker raincoat from surplus shop, riding gloves (with ventilation holes at the sides of the fingers ), long cycling shorts, and baggy shorts. The rest of the team had riding pants, jackets…. We left our warmer gear at the car back at DENR station ….How we envied the mountaineers who had thermal wear and the right cold weather gear…





Maybe it was better that we climbed in the dark…. We couldn’t see how high we had to go or how far we still had to…..




Never felt so cold in my life….. mangenriquez’s thermo watch indicated 7.22, so take out some body heat from that and actual may have been 6.something….



Dito ka naman bibilib kay master alanfb…. While the rest of us were miserable from the cold…. He was in deep sleep….. napapalundag yung ibang dumadaan pag nakikita sya nakahiga…. Happily snoring away the cold hehehe




And then it started…. What would make it all worth it….







You can’t tell from the pic but he was actually shaking so hard hehehe… kaya puro blury yung pick o nanginginig yung kumukuha….

Here comes the sun… dudo dudoooo







Alanfb finally wakes from his slumber, just in time to see the magnificent sunrise…





Mangenriquez with sun rays…




Ako din dapat may pic!







Just like the day before, never seeing sunset over the clouds…. This was my first time to see it rise over the clouds…. IT WAS TRULY AWESOME!





Really feels great to be higher than high…




Ganda manong ano?

Ok time to trek back down….






Where we came from






The trek down seemed to never end… didn’t feel like that climbing in the dark…. Maybe it was because we could see where we were already… and we could see how far still we had to walk down…




Bikable sana most of the parts from the ranger station… several parts lang you had to lift your bike…. But bawal talag…



There was even mossy lane like mt. ugo….






Made me remember lord of the rings… the trees are going to battle:

Nice one bro! I've been to Pulag na pero hike lang. Last long weekend we went to Ugo, yung kasama ko si Joey brought his bike, sakripisyo lang paakyat kasi ang daming buhat lalo na yung pa summit, pero nung DH, ayos na. Di ko dinala bike ko sa Ugo at tamad kasi ako mag buhat, hehehehehehe!

Congrats and Ride safe guys!

nice!...nakapag-three peaks na din ako nung college... well actually two peaks lang pala (kabunian and lobo)...di na kasi kinaya yung isa dahil malayo na sya from our base camp which is is in brgy Poblacion.

Sir, pa-PM na lang po ng details (IT, budget, etc.) nung ride nyo baka sakaling makasama... ^_^
