Mt. Talinis, also known as the Cuernos de Negros (Horns of Negros), is a complex volcano located in Negros Oriental and stands at about 1,903 meters above sea level. It may not sound as daunting as Mt. Pulag (2,922 meters above sea level), but believe me when I say I had a harder time conquering this mountain/volcano.
We met up at the South Bus Terminal at around 2am on a Saturday, rode a bus and were on our way to Santander at 3am, and got on a fast craft for Negros Oriental at 7am. We ate breakfast and bought lunch at Jollibee in Dumaguete before going to Dauin for the registration and jump-off.
