Mount APO: The Wedding Proposal

Mount Apo is a large solfataric, potentially active stratovolcano in the island of Mindanao, Philippines. With an elevation of 2,954 meters (9,692 ft) above sea level, it is the highest mountain in the Philippine Archipelago and is located between Davao City and Davao del Sur province in Region XI and Cotabato province in Region XII. The peak overlooks Davao City 45 kilometers (28 mi) to the northeast, Digos City 25 kilometers (16 mi) to the southeast, and Kidapawan City 20 kilometers (12 mi) to the west. (source:

Climbing Mount Apo is an experience that I gain a very rewarding and inevitable surprises, exploring the wilderness I see beauty beyond the nature of the mountain.

Along the trail, I learn to embrace all the possibilities inch by inch I appreciate the steepness, the unconventional temperature, and the people that I met along the trail including the porters, guides and co-climber.

What’s surprising, there is a wedding proposal that about to unfold, a different and rarest experience that I witness; instead of traditional wedding proposal what these two couple did (Yanna and Jhe) is on top of the mountain wedding proposal. It’s different and more memorable that God’s given nature is there witness of the love that they nurture and they make history for themselves. What amazes me, I have captured these special moment while I’m still enjoying and caressing the view on top of Mount Apo.
