Mt. Batulao, located in the the province of Batangas, stands 811 meters above sea level (MASL). From Manila, one can take a 2-3 hour bus ride to Batangas and witness such spectacular view. This mountain is rated 4/10 difficulty level by Filipino mountaineers.

Depending on the time of the year you’re visiting, expect a very cold hike during the months of December – February and a scorching hike during March – May. I recommend the former as this is the most ideal weather to enjoy a relatively easy climb. Expect slippery pathways due to the mountain’s loose soil.

It is also highly recommended that you wear your hiking shoes, bring ample amount of water, and wear clothes that cover enough skin if you’re not fond of getting cuts and bruises from the trail.
