Nature Trip: Mt. Apo
Pls. like my Facebook page, Bak-paker's Adventures.
When I was in Davao, I made an impromptu trip to North Cotabato to see (just) the peak of Mt. Apo.
I took a 3 hr. bus ride to Kidapawan City of North Cotabato. I didn’t know that trekking my way to the foot of Davao City was not that easy. From Kidapawan, the only way to the foot is to ride a habal-habal which I may add is not a safe ride. But what can I do, I am a daredevil. I took me an hour and a half to finally reach the foot. To my disappointment, the peak was already covered with clouds. I was able to see however the steam from Mt. Apo . Mt. Apo
I took pictures of the place and headed back to the habal-habal driver whom I commissioned to bring me to the foot and back to
. As I approached him, he kept uttering words using his native dialect (he doesn’t know how to speak Tagalog) pointing to the sky. I looked back and to my surprised, the Kidapawan City peak of Mt. Apo, standing tall! I was speechless…
I really don’t know how it happened but I was certain that Apo Sandawa has something to do with it.
Mystical or not, don’t deprive yourself of nature’s wonderful gifts. Go on a nature trip and spend quality time with Mother Earth!
