Subic-Zambales Hiking Updates

Update 02/26/2013


Sa mga katotong mountaineer mangyari po lamang na eto ang kontakin ninyo

- 0999 549 7210 - Chieftain Juanito Balosbalos
- 0921 346 5312 - Jean Dela Cruz
- 0949 701 5730 - Diony

kapag pupunta kayo sa mga bundok ng Balingkilat, Dayungan, Cinco Picos at mga traverses papunta sa mga beaches ng Nagsaza, Anawangin at Silanguin. Kung meron kayong sariling mga kontak sa mga Kulot dun na wala sa numerong ito ay mangyari po lamang na wag nyo ng kontakin pa kase hindi kayo nakakatulong sa mga Kulot dun. Binuksan ang mga bundok na ito sa mga mountaineers upang ang lahat ng mga Kulot dun ang siyang makinabang sa pag ga guide at hindi yaong mga iilang Kulot lamang. Si Chieftain Balosbalos ang nakatalagang Chieftain doon sa Cawag. Nasasakupan niya dito ang San Martin na kung saan dito nanggagaling ang kontak ng ibang mga mountaineers.

Nakikiusap ako sa inyo na kung gusto ninyo makatulong sa mga Kulot dun at hindi yaong iilan lang na mga Kulot ang mga numero sa taas ang kontakin ninyo.

You can also visit the site www.yabag.org sa mga additional na impormasyon.

Salamat po.

Chieftain Binggoy and Chieftain Perla are now working hand-in-hand to assist the mountaineers going to Cinco Picos, Rounded Peak, Pointed Peak.

Subic-Zambales Hiking Updates

Bad news for us who likes to frequent the Cawag settlement mountains (Balingkilat, Nagsasa, Cinco Picos and Dayungan) in Zambales. I received a reliable news that the locals (aetas) unjustifiably adjusted their guide rates. The guiding rates is now categorize via destination instead on a daily basis.

Before
  • 300 per day for every 5 persons, no matter which mountain you are heading. Traverse or not to the beaches of zambales.
Now
  • Mt. Balingkilat dayhike - 600
  • Mt. Cinco Picos to Dayungan Traverse - 900
  • Mt. Cinco Picos traverse to Silanguin cove - 900
  • Mt. Nagsasa traverse to Nagsasa cove - 600 (1 or 2 days)
  • Mt. Balingkilat traverse to Anawangin cove - 1500
  • Mt. Dayungan traverse to Nagsasa cove- 900 (1 days or 2 days)
I hope all mountaineers will protest this unjust rate increases. Most of us are already  familiar on the trails of these mountains. Paying the guide fee is just our way of helping them and in return the mountains will also be protected.  YabagMC are the one who explored these mountains, they are also the one who established this place as a hiking destination. And this new rates are not what they verbally agreed upon. I had been to many climbs and I can say this rates is overpriced. And I will not climb to this place anymore unless they return the rates to what it should be.
