Mt. Makiling was one of the most popular mountains from the southern part of the country. Last December 2009, we decided to end the year with a Makiling traverse, more popularly known as Maktrav. This was the hike that perfectly ended our 2009. It tested our endurance and wits. The hike gave us a lot of challenges, one was running out of water supply. Thankfully, Ma. Makiling was so generous to us. Along the trail, we saw a small murky pool of water. The spot was a 15-minute walk from Melkas campsite. Desperately, we dug it deeper and decided to come back for it the next morning. Amazingly, the dirt receded leaving a clear and seemingly drinkable water. We boiled it for a few minutes and off we go towards the Los Baños side. Views are majestic as well but the most notable and remarakble feature of this traverse is the trail especially between the Sto. Tomas jump-off and Peak 2. I consider it a real challenge for a serious mountaineer. Going down from Makiling's highest point was much easier, especially if you're going to run and let your momentum shorten your descent time.hehe. Pesky limatiks mostly thrive on this side of the mountain. A great sidetrip we have had was visiting the Mudspring. It was spectacular, a scenery of boiling and steaming mud accompanied by its sulfuric smell. Unfortunatley, cameras were down so we weren't able to capture this magnificent part of Makiling. We will not miss it again the next time we go for another Maktrav, a must try for the extreme adventurist in you.
