The BACKPACKERS are gaining new official members and regular guests. Our priority is to help them expand their mountain adventures and travel experiences by conquering new mountains and going to different places. That is why when some requested during our August climb (Mt. Pinagbanderahan) that they would love to climb Mt. Pico de Loro, we solidified the target adventure for September.
Standing at 664 meters above sea level, Mt. Pico de Loro boasts of the highest point in the province of Cavite. It is one of the most popular hiking destination near the metropolis. The BACKPACKERS, before being established as a group, had some of its pioneer members explore the mountain. In 2011, we had our first Friendship Climb held in Mt. Pico de Loro as well. And this year, BP Jovy (and other BPs and guests) requested to visit the same mountain. The beauty of this mountain is so alluring that even I, BP Lead, promised to visit it at least once a year since I started my passion in climbing mountains. This Mt. Pico de Loro By-Request is my eighth climb here, but the experience is different ever since I discovered its grandeur.
