About Feet4Earth
  Feet4Earth Mountaineers Group, with co-founders Johnson Ongking, Roderick Yu and Art Suarez, have formed between friends and relatives alike a recreational group that incorporates not only mountaineering but adventure travel as well in the Philippines. 

   A bunch of workaholics that usually have time only on Holidays, all the time we ever could afford to get out from all the toxicity of urban living, we'd like to get out as much and be on the mainstream of Philippine mountaineering, but our point is not to form a group just for the fun of it. Sure we wanted to experience Mother Nature's best but the proper education for all the responsibility attributed to the Art of Travel needs to be told to those who would like to experience the wild. 

Feet4Earth Mountaineers Organization is currently based in Manila with friends Tiboy Reyes, Arlene Tan, Amy Chua, Jun Ampil, Lesley Victorino, Janice Yu, Jen Lim, Ampy Reyes, Wendy Choi, Mitch Picardal, Jean Tarriella, Josel Joaquin, Larry Reyes, Edgar Chua, Joyce Alcoreza, Eunice Wong, Roderick Tan, Martin Cabral, Carol Chua, Jojo Ongking, Lui Suarez, Zoe Ezequiel, Precious Cheng, Kathrin Sia, Valerie Yu, Vanessa Noda, Barnard and David Huang including our German friends Kathrin Drygala and Anke Meyer.
Among other friends Vergel Dyoco, Len Bustamante, Mae, Nancy and Allen as well as Jun and Greg - Adventure Drivers, and our guides Nano and Rico of Dolores Quezon.

What's Up on Feet4Earth
We'd like to share some stories from our latest itineraries. 

Mt. Pulag Adventure
We tackled the highlands, for a scenic view with the heavens and a brief experience of the cold in Benguet.

Holy Week Special
We went Whale Watching at Donsol and climbed Mt. Isarog in Naga for a four-day adventure in Bicol.

Click to go Home"We are none of the hardcore mountaineers or supertravellers but we wanted to tell hikers, backpackers and mountaineers alike about the message of caring for the earth and environment, as we see a rapid change to the worse of the living planet that we are in right now. That for sometime, we may be experiencing the best of the outdoors until such time that we might have lost all the beauty due to our uncaring act and lost sense of etiquette in the backwoods. Living it out here could mean going grunge at times, but it is pointless to stay uncivilized when we know well enough to be responsible for our planet".

We have accumulated over time a lot of outdoor stuff and gear that did most wonders in our adventure trips. I can say some are quite primitive, some will do the job and others are really doing well for their purpose. We did some writings to share our comments with regards to proper care of these valuable items along with helpful tips for travel. We aim to provide information that have been gathered from our past and present experiences to help you find more enjoyment in your backpacking and less of the troublesome aches and pains that we have generally had a fair share in all our travel itineraries. So read on and have fun. Check out our Trip Tips.
