Mt. Makiling Everyday #13

"Climbing is the lazy man's way to enlightenment. It forces you to pay attention, because if you don't, you won't succeed, which is minor — or you may get hurt, which is major. Instead of years of meditation, you have this activity that forces you to relax and monitor your breathing and tread that line between living and dying. When you climb, you always are confronted with the edge. Hey, if it was just like climbing a ladder, we all would have quit a long time ago." Duncan Ferguson

Mount Makiling is an inactive volcano according to PHIVOLCS (Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology), with no records of eruptions. It is showing no signs of imminent eruption although it has volcanic activity manifested by the boiling mud spring, the numerous hot springs in the area (like in Pansol, Calamba City), and the geothermal resource on the mountain’s Batangas side.
