Chasing Summer » Akyat Pinatubo Bloggers Climb For a Cause

This summer is too short. We already got intermittent rain showers a few days ago signalling the wet season, so we only got a few more weeks to enjoy the sun and have outdoor activities. 

Although I love beaches, I want to try something different. Fortunately I came across the Let's Go Sago blog and learned about the "Akyat Pinatubo Bloggers Climb For a Cause", a bloggers' travel activity this coming weekend. This event is for the benefit of Tahanang Walang Hagdanan and is also open for non-bloggers who would like to join this worthy cause.


Sounds cool right? I'll have a chance to visit Pinatubo, previously synonymous to tragedy and lahar mudflow but now a tourist destination. A trek going to the majestic crater-lake of Mt. Pinatubo plus some mountain climbing and a 4×4 jeepney ride.will be a very exciting gig before summer 2011 ends.

Aside from the awesome travel experience,I'm hoping to lose a few pounds!

UPDATES:  Due to upcoming typhoon with local name ‘Chedeng,’ the Akyat Pinatubo trip was moved to next Saturday - June 04, 2011. Trekking to Mt. Pinatubo crater-lake demands at least a day or two of dry days. The same itinerary and schedule will apply.

This project is conceptualized by travel blog LetsGoSago.net but made possible with the help of the following sponsors:

  • SM
  • Jollibee
  • Unilab
  • Havaianas
  • Travel Factor
  • GeiserMaclang
  • Primer Group of Companies
  • Sledgers
  • Solid Hosting
  • Blogger Manila
This blogger event is also made possible by Nufffnang Philippines, ChurpChurp Philippines, and Orange Magazine TV, Recreational Outdoor Exchange (R.O.X.) and Bus transportation Kiss Tourist Bus.
