When I heard the place Benguet, first comes to my mind are the cold weather, vegetables, pine trees and beautiful mountains – So Greeny! As a girl who has given the opportunity to be in the place, I could say I am blessed to experience and to see for myself how lovely Benguet is. I am always thankful I got the chance to travel even with a little time. One of the best experiences I have in the place is to do hiking. First hiking experience I had was climbing Mount Ulap, and to tell you the experience was really great. I’ve describe that hiking experience as the Best Feeling Ever!
Last Saturday, I, my boss and our chief surveyor planned to do a day hike. The planned day hike was actually part of my job to take photographs of our current project in Benguet as update for our monthly progress report, but I never imagined that the hiking experience turned out to be exciting for me. Well, I guess maybe because I longed to hike more mountains. Kicking-off some mountains in Bukidnon like Mount Dulang-dulang and Mount Kitanglad are on my bucket list, but sadly the planned last July got canceled because the mountain were closed because of the martial law. But thank God this hiking around Tuba Benguet to San Roque Dam Eco Trail made me the happiest kid!
This is only a two to three kilometers hike not that long compared to typical hiking trail and adventures, but again it made me the happiest. We started the trail at Tuba Benguet where our project site located, passed through some parts of San Roque Dam Eco Trail and turned down to get the best photographs of TSF3 Spillway Raise Project.

Reaching the front view of TSF3 was a relief! We had 30 minutes rest under a pine tree with the spillway as our view. I also tried to climb the tree and thanks to Kuya Errol he lifted me up to the tree branch. No hassle! ^.^
Feeling a pro tree climber lol!

The trail awakened the dull body of me that’s been longing for more hiking adventures like this. You might think this is just a simple jaunt, but I love this unexpected trip. How about you? What adventures are you always longing to do? I would love to hear any thoughts from you, kindly share that in the comment section below.
