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.
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

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".
