Mountaineering Motto:

"Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time".

Our History

It started in the year 2005, when three individuals namely Ian Villamin, Allan Tisado and Joepz Tanega accompanied by there friends Robert and Shirly go to a town fiesta in Majayjay Sta Cruz Laguna, they have dicided to have an overnight camp at Majayjay falls which was recommended by Robert S.
After the town fiesta at majayjay, Ian, Allan, and Joepz go home to Pacita and stay at Allan's house to have some chat, another friend of the three came along (Ronald Fines), they have some nice conversation and the main topic of thier chat was life and excitement in the mountains. Ian and Ronald were encouraging Allan and Joepz how exciting a mountaineer can be, because Ian (former SANIBS and Mountain GOAT club) and Ronald also a SANIBS mountaineering group were familiar in mountaineering activities. After the chit chat and convincing power of the two, the four decided to climb the mountain for beginners (Mt. Famy) and they scheduled it on December 5, 2005. 
At first they did not how to name the group, they even rumble their first and last letter of their names to get a good name for their mountaineering group, until Ian being the pioneer of the four decided to name the group Dahonpalay Mountaineer, (vein snake). So the four agree to name the club Dahonpalay Mountaineers.
