Good Friday at Kinabuhayan

This was the first time that I went out on a Good Friday. I went to Kinabuhayan with my two brothers and my father, also with my cousin and two of my brother’s friends. I usually spent Good Friday having picnic sa ilog namin.

The travel was not that long, it lasted for forty minutes from Tiaong Quezon. Afterwhich, we reached the paanan of Mt. Banahaw. Mt. Banahaw is closed for public and mountaineers, to protect it.

Amazing that there were lots of people at the foot of the mountain, taking their bath at the river. We climbed at the cave and went inside of it. Napakainit because of the lighted candles. Sweat flowed down, felt really hot! But felt good though, this was the time to sacrifice, oh not this time only, but all the time during our entire life.

I share the pictures I had using the LG cookie of my brother, unfortunately, the pictures were not as clear as the normal resolution of my digicam.

First Picture is the crowd of Kinabuhayan

The next five pictures are taken inside the cave, there’s a narrow way underneath leading to the river. We had to kneel and crawl sometime, we experienced difficulty in breathing, candles were the out guides.

The last picture was after we went through the cave.

I went inside the cave together with my brother and cousin. The cave to said brings miracle, there is a water coming from the bukal. We lasted for forty-five minutes inside, the route is not that long, but because of many people bathing inside, we had a long time before we got into it. I felt good, it was my first time to experience it. Hope to be there again and be able to climb Mt. Banahaw.

Warning: If you will go there with your own car, be reminded that you will encounter difficulty in parking. Makipot po ang kalsada, kami noon ay naglakad na sa haba po ng traffic (opo, natraffic pa po hehehe)

Till then,
