Exploring the Wilderness of Aklan: A Very Challenging Hike to Mt. Nausang, Aklan’s Untamed and Highest Mountain in Panipiason, Madalag

Tay Freddy, ma-ea-yo pa (is it still far)?, Ritch asked Pastor Freddy, our local guide while we were walking in the middle of the night in the mountains of Panipiason, Madalag, Aklan. “Ma-ea-pit eon lang, Ma’am, una eon sa unahan (we’re getting close, Ma’am, just few meters ahead),” Pastor Freddy replied. The rain was pouring and we started to feel cold so we stopped for a while to get our jackets and rain coats. I pulled out my tarp and shared it with Ritchel and Tay Freddy and together, we used it as a walking roof as we continue our hike to May-Irimnan campsite. It was a struggle.
