My Masungi Georeserve Escapade!

9:49 PM Cindy 0 Comments

Hello guys, yup I’m bouncing back to blogging sphere! I have so many stories to tell you but first let me share to you my Masungi Georeserve experience. This entry is off topic from my usual post about finances and savings but still I want to impart it here because I want to travel to different places this year especially our local tourists spots! Ang ganda talaga kasi ng bansa natin di'ba. Of course, this should be plan ahead of time so that I will not put a hole in my pocket.

So sino ang mga kasama ko? I went trekking with my sister and her friends last April 22, 2017. It’s my first time to try this kind of activity so I am thrilled. Gosh, I can still remember the “pagod” and all because we trek 9 trails of Masungi (Sapot, Ditse, Patak, Duyan, Yungib Ni Ruben, Tatay, Nanay, Bayawak) under the extreme hot of the sun! Until now I have tan lines pa.

Our day is jampacked with activities because in the morning we went to Masungi then we headed to Pililla Wind Farm and our last stop is the Daranak Falls but I'll save that on separate post of this blog. It was an exhausting day but I can say the trip is worth it and every penny that I paid is sulit! We planned this escapade one year in advance because making a reservation in Masungi isn’t easy. They are fully-booked always so if you wish to go there plan ahead of time and make early registration now on their website here.

You should also refrain from buying visit requests from outside sources. When we went there other groups has to stop their trail halfway because they make their reservations through a travel agent. There will be no refund ha so take note of it. Anyhow, I will stop talking and share to you some of our photos.


Before we start our trail, our group had orientation first conducted by the local park ranger of Masungi at the Silungan. Here we are advice to urinate before we start our trek and they orient us about the dos and don’ts that we should obey. We brought water, cellphones and light snacks such as chocolate bars and jelly ice. It’s a no-no to throw trash while on Masungi so we brought eco bags to serve as our plastic garbage.
Ayan eto yung una kong inakyat na lubid lubid. Kung masasabi nyo yan lang ang inakyat ko, nagkakamali kayo. Umpisa pa lang yan!
Kunyari di halatang hirap ako sa pag-akyat. Ngiting natutuwa pero sa isip ko omaygash yung pata ko nanginginig. Charot! Eto lang ba ang aakyatin ko?? Joke. Madami pa palang mga ganyan sa trail namin so wait for more photos!
Taas kamay kunyari! Haha. Ay baket nakapikit ako?! Nakakalula.
Eto kasi yung dinaanan ko papuntang gitna. Kapag may pagkafinal destination kayo mag-isip at naputol ang mga wires na yan alam nyo na kung saan kayo matutusok. Hehehe. But no guys, our park ranger told us that the materials that they use here are super tibay!
Obligatory group picture
Yungib ni Ruben. Infairness mabango dyan sa kweba na yan. Nagsindi kasi sila ng scented candles. May mga ibon din kaming nakita. Pagpasok namin sa kweba ang lamig guys parang may aircon.
Wishing fountain! Di ako nagwish. Wala akong dalang barya that time. Charot!
Groupie sa Duyan habang tirik na tirik ang araw!
Rest muna bago sumugod ulit sa laban ng pag-akyat sa madaming hagdan at lubid. Natunaw ng matindi mga taba ko sa dyan sa katawan!

Picture muna sa duyan-duyan! Nakalimutan ko na tawag dito. Sabi ng park ranger namin na si Marshan oks daw dito magboomerang! Ginawa namin. Magandang pang instagram.
Ang Patak bow! Infairness di halatang pagod ako dito.
Group picture sa loob ng Patak.
Sa tuktok ni Nanay. Kitang kita dito ang view ng Sierra Madre sa kaliwa tapos Laguna de bay naman daw sa kanan. Ngiting mga pagod na pagod na bata at gutom!
Ang aming very friendly at pasensyosong park ranger - Marshal! Tumagal kami ng 5 hours sa trail namin kasi picture kami ng picture at todo kami magpahinga. Haha.
Bale eto yung pinakalast stop namin yung Bayawak. Nakakalula tumingin sa itaas pero nakayanan ko naman makababa.
Ngiting nakasurvive! Grabe sobrang pagod na pagod na kami dyan pero pose pa rin sa photo.
At the end of our trail we went to Silungan and we are provided with  complimentary light refreshments courtesty of Masungi.

Banana, lettuce, wheat bread and they also have egg spread and I forgot the other one. Haha. Not included in the photo is the fresh calamansi juice with honey. It is so refreshing. Imagine nyo na lang na super sarap na sarap kami sa pagkain na yan dahil gutom na gutom na kami talaga!

I highly recommend this place guys because it is really an adventure and may pagka extreme factor pa ng slight kasi magdadasal ka kada trail. Haha. Anyhow, how's your summer my dear readers? Where do you plan to go this month of May? Share your stories on the comment section below!
