Conquering Mt. Ampacao (Sagada, Mountain Province)

According to Pinoymountaineer.com.

MT. AMPACAO
Sagada, Mt. Province
Major jump-off: Ambasing Elementary School, Brgy. Ambasing, Sagada
Altitude: 1889 MASL (386 meter gain)
Days required / Hours to summit: Half day, 1.5 hours
specs: Minor climb, Difficulty 2/9, Trail class 1,3
 
There are two landmarks to remember when climbing Mt. Ampacao.

The Summit marked by the Smart cellsite tower
And the

The Ranch Part ( see the cow over there?)

Mula sa Jump-off point inabot kami ng halos lagpas isang oras papuntang ranch (may 3 stop over pa yan bago kami makarating).

One of the Stop Overs ( haggard na haggard lang hheheh!)
Mga ilang piktyur lang ang ginawa namin dahil sa sobrang pagod at hingal.



Nakalimutan ko yung name ng Town....
Nagpapaka-emo lang
Ang plano sana namin ay akyatin yung summit pero sabi ng aming Tour Guide kukulangin sa oras at aabutin kami ng dilim ( mahirap umakyat ng bundok pag madilim).

Sir Ben - Saggas Tour Guide ( thanks Sir Ben)
From the Ranch to the jump-off point inabot lang kami ng 45 minutes (pababa kasi mas madali.).

Notes:

* Bring lots of water.
* Pwede umakyat ng Mt. Ampacao kahit walang tour guide just follow the trail, mas maagi na rin na kumuha kayo ng Tour Guide marami pa kayong matu-tutunan.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the following persons:

* Sir Ben for being an excellent tour guide /no.1
* Sir Jake for the constructive criticism. ( ano sir, Mt. Pulag naman? hahha!) /wah and last but not the least.
 * The Chatroll Tambay Team for........alam nyo na yun, wala akong masabi hehehe!

Thanks for viewing!

Cheers!
