Mount Cristobal, 1997: The Devil Mountain

In 1997, my fraternity brothers and I climbed Mount Cristobal, in the Quezon Province. Just across is Mount Banahaw, which is called the Holy Mountain, whereas Mount Cristobal is called the Devil’s Mountain. Although considered an ‘easy’ climb, as it would take just a day to ascend the peak, the spirits of the mountain are said to be very mischievous and sometimes evil.

During that climb, we did experience some unexplainable phenomena, which caused some of my companions to hide in their tents for the rest of the night.
