Mt. Talamitam (Overnight) + Caleruega Church Travel Guide: A 800PHP Itinerary

****A TRAVEL GUIDE FROM FEBRUARY 2017****

A Couple that hike + camp together = walang picture together

(My 4th summit, his 2nd summit)

Yung lahat ng friends mo inaya mong umakyat at magcamp. Isipin mo – kahit isa walang sumama! but whatever happens, tinuloy namin ang trip since first time namin magcamp ng magkasama.

Sharing one of my “not-so-tipid-trip” (Budget for two) for beginner hikers (Yep! that’s Us)

*Mas tipid ‘to pag mas marami around P250.00-P400.00 overnight-budget*
