A Week into the Wild: What We Found in Walking Across Aklan and Antique Mountain Ranges for 7 Days

Trekking the pristine river somewhere in the tip of Aklan. The upstream river is part of the long trail leading to the elusive summit of Mt. Madjaas.

More than the famous powdery white sand beach of Boracay, many parts of Aklan remain hidden and untouched. The province of Aklan, particularly the towns of Libacao and Madalag, is home to numerous unexplored mountain ranges; a potential mountaineering destination in the country. The highest mountain in Aklan, Mt. Nausang, has just been explored by AMSI (Antique Mountaineering Society Inc.) in May. Mount Nausang is 1600 MASL. It's summit is located in Panipiason, Madalag, Aklan and it’s ranges extends up to Oyang, Libacao, Aklan. Inspired by the exploration of AMSI in Mt. Nausang, Richard and I attempted a hike traversing Mt. Nausang from its ranges in Libacao, Aklan to it’s summit in Panipiason, Madalag and connect it to Mt. Madjaas in Antique. The hike was our personal endeavor, fuelled by our strong passion for exploration.
