Hi! How are you doing? Guess what I did recently? I went trekking! I went to Masungi Georeserve during the end of November. It’s conservation area in Rizal, Philippines. It’s a trail that runs around 3 to 4 hours long and you have a park ranger guiding you and teaching you more about the place and nature around you. At first, I didn’t actually want to go but I’m glad I did.
Masungi Georeserve had seven highlights. They are the Sapot, Yungib ni Ruben, Tatay, Nanay, Duyan, Bayawak, and Sawa. The sapot is a platform made of cables that resembles a spiders web. It gives you a great view of the Laguna de Bay. Yungib ni Ruben is a cave where you enter and you see stalactites and stalagmites. Tatay is one of the two peaks and it’s the highest one. Nanay, on the other hand, is the second peak and just like tatay, it is formed by a number of rocks stacked on top of each other. Duyan is a bridge that is made to look like a giant hammock. Bayawak is like a ladder that you climb down on that is made of ropes. It is named after a large lizard. Last but not the least, the sawa is a hanging bridge.
My overall experience was great. There were a lot of times when I thought I won’t be able to finish the trek but I tried to fight it and push through. It is something I really recommend. The view is so beautiful and the park rangers really made me appreciate nature more. It was tiring and scary at times but it was so worth it.
