We traversed from the old to the new trail. I found out that it's a bit difficult to descend than ascend, for whatever reason. While the sun is setting, while on the trail, we all witnessed the sudden change of the color of the skies and felt that temperature is getting colder. Photo above was taken while the sun was setting. Can you see how gorgeous the shape of Mt. Batulao? This scene was spectacular!
