My friends from South Cotabato in Southern Philippines, are organizing a trek to Lake Holon on August 19-20, 2012. The event is called 'Takladtamig Dos,' which means 'let us climb, my friend' or something to that effect, in Hiligaynon.
Project Socsargen brought me and my churchmates to 2 provinces (South Cotabato, Sarangani), 2 cities (Koronadal, General Santos) and 3 municipalities (Polomolok, Tboli and Glan) in South Central Mindanao or Region XII.
If given another opportunity, I still would like to trek Mt. Parker again albeit on a lesser known but challenging trail. I also would like to swim across the icy waters of Lake Holon until I could not longer suspend my imagination of creatures that may be swimming beneath me.
Sitio Kangko is the farthest inhabited area in Barangay Lamlahak in the municipality of Lake Sebu, Southern Philippines. It is located at the foot of the yet unexplored Mt. Three Kings, aptly named for the three imposing peaks that seem to closely watch the small community.
