Join me today as we continue our adventure on the island of Marikaban. On this adventure, we will be climbing a mountain to reach Mag Asawang Bato. A site that is very popular on the island. Mag Aswang Bato or Couple rock is a big rock at the very top of the mountain located in Marikaban island, Philippines. The rock looks like it has been split into two but still stands side by side like a couple. It will not be an easy climb though as we were told that even experienced mountaineers had a hard time reaching the top.
The video will immerse you in our grueling experience towards the top. Needing constant rest stops along the way and not having enough water was a challenge. Here you would feel the struggle that we went thru, encouraging others along the way in spite of the exhaustion. There were six of us who climbed not including our guide. Unfortunately, not everyone was rewarded with the view that awaited us at the summit.
I hope you enjoy the video and know what you would expect just in case you plan to visit and take the challenge in conquering Mag Asawang Bato.

The ferry boat that took us to the island where it all started. Passing thru three ports and having a frightening tricycle ride just to get us to our destination. See a little bit of the small town in the island while riding the tricycle along the way.
A peaceful stroll along the beach is something I wish I could do every single day. Here you will see how people spent their time here just having fun and enjoying the crystal clear water.
