Pinipisakan Falls near the Sulpan Cave
system San Jorge, Western Samar. Canyoning towards
Gandara river. Perfect swim through the
Saklang scales Alto Peak SummitBy: Eleonor
I always believed that the least you expect an unforeseeable event to
happen, the more it will likely to become possible. I was always interested
to go out with the Saklang Mountaineering Inc. – U.P. Tacloban whenever
they have an outdoor activity but now, I am hesitant to move on. This
time they will go not only for a fun climb experience but for an exploration
climb to Alto Peak where no mountaineering group has ever set foot on....
Mountaineering is a form of activity that enables people to express
themselves...lets them satisfy an inner need: the need may be to live
heroically or to rebel against self-restraints and limitations...
an affirmation of the spirit, or it may well be the pleasure of physical
fitness and moral energy, elegance of style and calculated daring.
It may be the search for an intense aesthetic for exquisite sensations,
or for man's never satisfied desire to explore the unknown. Best of
all, it should be all these things. - GIUSTO GERVASUTTI
