LAP: Conquering the highlands
SGVeans trekked to the WS Development Center Training Room 6 on 15 September for a taste of the great outdoors.
Mr. Long Henson, founder of the Metropolitan Mountaineering Society (MMS), discussed the sport of mountaineering in the Philippines. He presented different mountaineering destinations and outlined how a trekker should prepare before an expedition. The session ended with an open forum, with the participants inquiring about safety precautions and tips for starters.
