First Time Camping | Mt. Naupa

2:03 AM


Last Saturday, I spent my weekend in the mountains. I've always preferred natural wonders instead of urban and modernised places, so when Ms. Sol told me about a camping plan, I had to go. Our plans & dates were pushed due to horrible rainy weather and scrambled schedules. Luckily, we all found time during the weekend. Because it was my first time camping in the mountains, I was packed with excitement! 

Mt. Naupa is located in Naga, Cebu, which is a two hour drive away from Cebu city. Initially, we planned to take a bus from SM to Naga, but we were fortunate enough to hire a van for the whole trip up to the chapel on the foot of the mountain. We then hiked up to the camping spot and picked up a few mangoes from the locals. The people who lived there were very nice and hospitable and I wish everybody could be as genuine as them. When we reached the destination, Mt. Naupa greeted us (me, my friends, and teachers who are pretty much my friends) with the prettiest sunset my eyes had laid on. 


I made a short video of how I saw my short trip. Overall, camping on Mt. Naupa did not only make me see and experience how beautiful this planet is, but it also made me realise that it's not just about the place or the activities going on. What makes an experience are the people who you are with and how much they care for you and shower you with kindness. The trip made me very grateful for the people I was with and how I am allowed to leave my footsteps on places I never even knew existed. 

Which places have you hiked or camped? x

All the love, regina
