Climb Mt. Talinis ( Negros Oriental )


Mount Talinis, also known as the Cuernos de Negros (Horns of Negros), is a complex volcano in the Philippine province of Negros Oriental. At about 1,903 metres (6,243 ft) above sea level, it is the second highest mountain on Negros Island after Mount Kanlaon. The volcano is located 9 km (5.6 mi) southwest of the municipality of Valencia; and 20 km (12 mi) from Dumaguete City, the capital of the province.


Mt. Talinis is my 1st major climb ( can't explain the feeling inside of me ) little bit excited and afraid. but the moment i reach the summit it's made me smile and wonder how beautiful the nature is.
