@Idol Zang, hindi lang ikaw/kayo ang nakarating dyan; ako rin he he he pero nasa loob ng cage. This is one of those rides that remained a dream to me. I dont think it will ever be scratched out of my bucket list because i have done it already but because I wont be able to do this at all. Nice and awesome pics and thanks for sharing.

One thing you wont be able to notice as you traverse Halsema Highway is you have been riding for an hour or two but at the end of it you are just basically negotiating up or down spirally one same mountain.

As for this Halsema adventure of Idol Zang with fellow masters, I cant wait to see its conclusion as will be depicted in the pics to come. Saan po kaya labas nito -- to the north going west will be ilocos Sur (Tagudin), or going east via Banawe/Lagawe/ or going a bit northeast via Mayaoyao--- that will be Santiago Isabela. WOW I cant wait to see.

Ser VNC, with patience you can do this.. hindi naman matarik itong halsema.. at the least parang daang hari ang steepness nito... for every kilometer 50meters ang tinaas.. kaya nyo ito...

I suppose that is Suyo.. and had to traverse that mountain to Candon...






Semplang.. dahil sa falling rock na nasa gitna ng daanan... tapos sharp curve pa.. kasing laki ng gulong ng truck ang bato...


We stayed in Candon..

@Idol Zang, so via Tagudin pala kayo. I can remember that landmark at Besang Pass when i use to pass by that on the way to Cervantes where we built a dam. Tagudin to Cervantes at that time was mostly all weather road; now i think the road is mostly cemented. Mabuti naman seemed nag-cooperate and weather. Ang gaganda ng view ng Halsema highway; really a haven for landscape photography. As i always say, i really love the North highlands, the isolation, culture and ethnicity of people and of course the adventure there that cannot be matched by the south even areas in mindanao. Some more pics Zang. Thanks
