Apayao Road Trip-Part 2: Rock climbing in Dupag Rock Formation in Marag Valley, Luna

During the crucial times in our lives, we are forced not to rely to others to overcome our struggles and fears. This is where we must seek the strength of our inner power. You just need to believe it.

Our rock climbing in Dupag Rock Formation is one of the most exhilarating experiences I did as a casual trekker and a middle-age mom. The challenges I did in Masungi Georeserve in Tanay and previous hikes lessened my fear of heights and eventually I gained more strength and courage to do any kind of activities now. To which I owe it all to God.
