Our recent climb to Mount Manalmon in Sitio Madlum three months ago is probably the most memorable as far as the word adventure is concerned. Sitio Madlum not only boasts the historical Mount Manalmon, it also brags other adventuresome places such as the very enchanting river (Madlum River) with a backbreaking monkey bridge on and white boulders around it, the adrenaline pumping jagged rocks and a somewhat mystical cave (Madlum Cave) whose narrow passages can turn spelunking into doing yoga exercises. If you mix these with an opportunity to meet a fellow Pinoy Travel Blogger in the person of the young and talented Ivan Cultura memorable could mutate into such a rewarding experience.
Ivan Cultura is the big man behind ivanlakwatsero.com. He is a renowned travel blogger in the country and to name a few of his many achievements, he was already featured in one of the documentary programs of the most prestigious TV Network in the country, GMA.
What transpired that day will be recounted via the gallery.
It has been a while since I got into a pretty intense adventure in just one day. The arms and shoulder of the giant named Mt. Manalmon; the backbreaking monkey bridge of Madlum river; rock climbing along the way to the summit; and the narrow passages of Madlum Cave are only a few of the many things you can experience in the place. These are another set of genuine nature wonders of the Philippines found in the very pristine place called Sitio Madlum at the north of Luzon.
Sabit-Sabit Mountaineers, guests, and tour guides, thank you for making our adventure more fun and challenging.
