Most Difficult Mountain Climb By Far

Sometime in May 2008, my college friend-classmate had invited me to a mountain-river-ocean adventure. And since, I had nothing much to do as I was jobless, I said "yes" right away. So, I packed for 2 days food and clothes and slept very early for the adventure ahead.

The starting climb was all difficult, only my feet could tremble and complain of fatigue. We stopped for a break when we visited a village of Tibolis (natives of Kiamba) and saw a log coffin as their burial tradition. This tradition has been practised for 75 years. . .

The next 7 hours of climb was more tiring and draining but I just loved the nature I was in. I could only marvel of their wonders. What I couldnt forget was the 1-hour climb down to the base camp, It was almost 90 degrees slope down with muddy steps. I could only grip to the grass and pray that I wouldnt fall. . . whew! The sleep at night was fast! I could feel every bone complaining. . . z z z z z z z

But the experience was all great. The spring water was endless and all cold and sweet. I couldnt wait to have my new adventure in Mt. Busa. A mountain much stiffer and farther in Kiamba. Come August!!!!!!!
