Last month, PAC Gear organized an event for the trekking enthusiasts in Cebu (registration was PHP300 for guide fee, permits, and bag tag), so our group joined in. This was my first trek with total strangers, and we were around 50 in number! The idea of having many people going trekking is exciting, but some things get a little bit frustrating.
The planned meet-up was at 10am at North Bus Terminal, but some people from other groups came [very] late. When we were finally complete at around 12pm, we rode a bus to Carmen (PHP50/head; there was even a mishap with this one due to our number and the size of our bags). And because the traffic was already getting heavy, we arrived at the town market at 2pm. We had a quick lunch before heading to the jump-off area via motorcycle (PHP100/head) for around an hour.
