Mt. Apo

An officemate showed me pictures of his summer escapade and photos of Mount Apo amazed me. What an exhilarating views! Oh...did I mention that Davao City is the seat of the highest mountain in the Philippines, Mt. Apo? I've been wanting to go there and Alfred keep on inviting me but sadly I can't at this time coz I have a little baby to take care of...maybe when she turns 4 or 5...hopefully. Anyways, I'm sharing you pix of Mount Apo taken by my good friend / officemate Alfred who never misses a summer or Holy week without climbing the majestic Mt. Apo which forms as a perfect backdrop of the beautiful city of Davao. Enjoy!

There are many places where mountaineers start their climb to Mt. Apo. It could be in the town of Bansalan, at Kidapawan, Kapatagan of Digos, and Calinan.

Jump off at Bansalan...start of the trek
