Mountains and Volcanoes
Adventuring In Pairs: Bulacan's Picturesque Mt. Manalmon & Mt. Gola
Daryl Orillo | Feb 02, 2017
Mt. Manalmon and Mt. Gola are both located in Sitio Madlum in San Miguel, Bulacan. Both are part of the Biak na Bato National Park.
Immediately upon arriving in the area, you will be welcomed by the beautiful Madlum River. However, in order to reach the start of the trail going up the two mountains, one must cross a precarious yet strangely exciting monkey bridge, hanging over the Madlum River.
Though no harnesses are available, it has nevertheless become a tourist destination for its unique blend of danger and charm. As of now, it has become the main tourist atrraction in Sitio Madlum.
As always, before hiking through any mountain, one must register at the local Barangay Hall. As is the case with Biak Na Bato, there are two mountains to trek—Mt. Manalmon and Mt. Gola. Both offer a breathtaking view of the Biak na Bato National Park.
A relatively small mountain, both peaks are just a little above 165 MASL+, perfect for beginners, or for seasoned climbers looking to encourage their friends to start hiking with them. Also, you'll experience river crossing on this area. Aside from mountains, there are caves in the area - madlum cave and Bayukbok cave.
