Precious Moment In The Mountain (Post#19) : Mount Hibok-Hibok (Catarman Volcano)
The photo above was the crater lake we saw while trekking Mount Hibok-Hibok in Camiguin Island Province last October 2012. To see this kind of area in the mountain you will not able to avoid thinking that we were actually walking at the crater of the mountain and tried to imagine what was it like here when this volcano erupted Mount Hibok-Hibok is categorized as a stratovolcano and recorded its recent eruptions in 1948, 1949 and 1950. The summit of this mountain measured with 1332 masl (meters above sea level).
As we were traveling to Camiguin through ferry, I saw this port name before we dock to the island. The port is part of Mahinog Municipality and one of the ports in the island. Photo captured last October 2012.
When we set to climb Mount Hibok-Hibok in Camiguin Island, the whole group flew to Cagayan de Oro where we will take the boat to Camiguin. And since we were already in Cagayan de Oro or famously known as CDO, we did a side trip in the place. The photo above was taken during white water rafting last October 2012. I learned from our guide, that the river serves as natural boundary between Bukidnon and Iligan, and between Bukidnon and Cagayan de Oro. Our adventure categorized as medium level based on where we started the rafting in the river. While doing the adventure I was really fascinated how wild the river is, how beautiful and clean it is. I actually fall in love with the river.
One of the side trip that we had after climbing Mount Hibuk Hibok in Camiguin Island province in Bohol Sea Philippines was to visit Katibawasan Falls. The falls is located at the foot of Mount Timpoong. When we visited the falls, some of my mountaineering group did tried to swim at the ice-cold pool which really good for tropical heat. Photo captured last October 2012.
The photo above was one of the view to appreciate and enjoy while at Mantigue Island (Magsaysay Island) Nature Park. The island is near in Camiguin Island province which located at Bohol Sea in Philippines. Our visit in the place were part of our Camiguin Adventure which includes Mount Hibuk-Hibok (Catarman Volcano) climb. This photo captured last October 2012.
