    We went up Mount Talinis yesterday, drove mostly as far the track could go. Then hiked up the rest of the way, not to the summit but high enough. It was like half jungle with foot-paths that went in all directions that the locals use. Wife's friends come with us too and went to there relatives house. What a great view, I could see Dumaguete City and the sea. Cebu island in the distance. We couldn't see the peak of the volcano because of the mist.
    First time I'v been that far up the mountain, great experience and to see how the mountain people live
    Thought I would be stiff this morning due to the hiking but I feel great.
    Must be the keto diet I'm on.

    I have been up there a few times, go mountain biking around that area from the top (not the summit) back into Valencia. The roads are pretty rocky not sure how far up you drove.

    We saw some mountain bikers about 6 of them also saw some trail bikers about 8 of them making a lot of noise. Not sure how far we got but had to hike the rest of the journey. IMG_20210124_094438373_HDR.jpg IMG_20210124_094438373_HDR.jpg

    Yeah I was with the local mountain bikers when I went.

    Looks like your photos are from a similar height.

    I was at around 900m, still a fair way up. Once this Covid rubbish is over and I can get back I will like to see how far up I can get.

    I also want to go to the summit of Mt Canlaon, (with my bike) I planned it a year ago but a exclusion zone was issued the week before.
