*** Why Not to Go? ***

- Most of the mountaineers get lost here. The last group reported in the news as lost before the creation of this site description was on the 28th May 2009. The group finally luckily arrived to San Pablo City
- If you ask locals about the whereabouts, they don’t necessarily give you correct answers (because they don’t know it well)
- Noxious plants, including the pruritogenic (itch-causing) lipa trees are present in this mountain; it is best to take this in consideration in clothing selection
- Thorns-bushes – one thorn ended in my ear, making it blooding. I protected my hands with Kevlar-gloves normally used for via ferrata.
- Long sections of the trail is very muddy, specifically when crossing the stream. You can “walk” in 10 cm deep mud during kilometres.
- Trail sections on very steep hillsides. Very slippery in the rainy-season
- Rarely visited place. In case of any accident – if you are alone – you cannot expect help during days
- Near 100% air humidity. In most times the hill is in clouds
- Rumoured activity of anti-government rebels in the mountain

*** Why to Go? ***

- You can get an experience that is not given to most people
- To see the wild Flora and Fauna
