Mt. Cristobal and Banahaw shares the same route and both has urband legends told and untold.  Several of which were already written or told but thankfully none happened during our climb.

Early on, we experienced an adversity with our jeepney being stalled.  We had no other choice but to trek all the way to Montelibano house.
