Our destination campsite for T-7 is the Outlet Area of Lake Holon in Barangay Salacafe, town of Tboli in South Cotabato. We will do a river trek to the outlet. Our beneficiaries will be the indigenous community and the children in Sitio Nabol.

Takladtamig is an organized mountain trekking event for outdoor people who prefer a trek that connects with the community and the environment. It's for a limited number of people only (50 or less than the usual campsite capacity of a mountain destination). But the main objective of the activity is not to reach the summit and gather facebook-worthy photos. 

The drill is simple, it's in our slogan: Grow a Tree. Lend a Hand. Be Amazed. 

The activity's main components include: meeting the community for an outreach activity (for this event: distribution of school supplies, practical household items and water containers); growing trees with them (planting is on us while caring for the trees to grow is the community's counterpart); climbing a mountain (and be amazed of nature's wonders).

Registration Fee is 500 pesos only. This is inclusive of an event T-shirt, environmental fees, transportation from Tboli town proper to the take off area in Salacafe and back.

Takladtamig is organized by Friends of Holon and Melibingoy (FHM).
You may get more updates in my facebook page at A Nomad's Perspectives or FHM's facebook page at Takladtamig (FHM).


See you in the outdoors!
