This is the station 1 of the Old trail on Mt. Batulao. It is an open ground where hikers can camp out overnight and trek for the summit the following day.
That sunny morning when we arrived, this group greeted us, well, not really. I think they weren’t in one group as the ones sitting on the left with their backs turned were obvious to have come from trekking too, arriving earlier before us. They were quietly sipping soda and munching on some crackers. While that bunch on the far right roofed under that shack were a bit loud, they were the campers I think because one of those girls was brushing her teeth as we passed by their tents going to an empty bench.
