after the bokong falls, it's time to get high again. and up we went to the Kiltepan View point.
this view point has a panoramic view of the kiltepan rice terraces, with its little community in one side plus the lush greenery on the other and the towering mountains all over! a very nice view is an understatement. and as usual, i had a grand time shooting (it would have been better if mine is a DSLR)!
while the others are just satisfied by just looking at the view, i won't settle for just that. i looked around and saw this rocky area on the lower side of the mountain that is just a perfect compliment for the awesome view of the terraces. of course, di naman ako todo-todong pasaway, i asked permission kung pwede akong bumaba ng konti, pwede naman daw and since they hinted na hindi rin ako papapigil, ingat na lang daw sa pagbaba (as if naman anlayo nung bababaan).
as i made my way, there's the usual "hoy, bakit ka pa bababa dyan?" and i just smiled at them. and when i sit on the edge of a rock, there are more of "ano ka ba zherwin?!" hehehe. of course, nag-iingat din ako, ayaw ko yatang pulutin ako sa ibaba. hehehe.
as usual, as i know from the start, the rest of the gang are just waiting for my initiative, and before i can say pasaway, heto at nakapila na rin sila for their own pictorial (and i volunteered to be their photographer). eh di ang gaganda ng view ng pictures nyo ngayon hehehe.
we didn't stay long, and after the last pose (there's a thing such as a last pose? hehe) we rode the jeep again to go to Rock Valley Inn. our guides suggested that if we are the adventurer type, why not use and sit on the topload of the jeep while we navigate downward? nice idea, why he didn't tell us earlier? some of us did that and it was fun and a bit uneasy "down there" as the you-know-what needs to be protected from being hit, or else... :)
rock valley inn is an inn (hehe), this is considered to be a "high-end" in sagada (but for P450.00 per night, high-end???) and it's a beautiful inn with its all-wood cafeteria, a very nice toilet, a very relaxing mini-clubhouse with a bonfire in the middle and a local that speaks english fluently complete with an american twang (mahihiya ang mga call center agents sa kanya).
we were told we can pick up oranges (it's also an orange farm) and have them squeezed at the cafeteria (of course for a fee). we toured the area, and we saw huge rock formations. wow.
and the most exciting part is next:
