Mount Guiting-Guiting is the most technically difficult mountain in the Philippines located at the heart of Sibuyan Island in Romblon. It has the highest difficulty rating of 9/9 among mountaineers. 
With a height of 2,058 meters above sea level, it is not for the faint-hearted. Our first day of hike clocked 11 hours of ascent through dense forest and pointed rocks before reaching the base camp (#3). The second day was even more unforgiving, 17 hours of trek until we reached the end of Olango-Tampayan traverse trail. In between, you pass through hurdles like 90-degree drop, kiss the wall, camel's back and the knee-weakening knife's edge. You will also get amazed by the different kinds of plants along the way, Sibuyan Island being called the "Galapagos of Asia." This hike completes my mountain trilogy--Mount Pulag (2015), Mount Apo (2016) and Mount Guiting-guiting (2017). #sinopinas #mountainPH #itsmorefuninthephilippines #SiRomblon #mtguitingguiting #sibuyan #mountains #tourism
