PMA (May 15, 2012)

After we had lunch at Hill Station, we hired a taxi to take us to the Philippine Military Academy. The usual rate is 300 pesos per hour. The official training school of the Armed Forces of the Philippines is a 373-hectare compound located in the Loakan area. It was named after the young hero of the battle of Tirad Pass, General Gregorio del Pilar.

You are required to leave an ID at the entrance. Then you are free to explore the premises.

It was a very rushed exploration as we were sweating profusely from walking the vast expanse, taking pictures and admiring the scenery. By the time we were through, we realized we had consumed a hour and a half inside the PMA premises. It was well worth it as we saw with our own eyes the grounds where the cadets of our Armed Forced are trained into well developed soldiers who will protect our country at all cost.
