FUN AT Daraitan


Trail Difficulty: 4/10

Adventure Duration: 1 day/s

Mt. Daraitan, located in Rizal near the border of Quezon province, is a natural playground to which both seasoned and budding adventurers can’t help but return. The mountain, which features forest trails, caves, and rolling grasslands, is ideal for a variety of outdoor activities, including hiking, spelunking, and camping. The mountain is also home to one of the country’s cleanest, free-flowing rivers, the Tinipak River, which is surrounded by large marble rocks that are great for bouldering.

Those who reach the summit of the mountain are rewarded with a magnificent view of the Sierra Madre mountain range and the province of Rizal. Upon descent and a little rest in the Barangay Hall comes a scenic and leisurely walk to the river on the other side of the village. The sight of the river’s sparkling waters, coupled with the majestic white rocks and cliffs that border it, is sure to soothe any climber’s fatigue. One may choose to swim in the river or simply lie on a large, smooth rock, relish the sights, and let the river’s cool currents massage one’s tired legs.

Pack up and get ready for a jam-packed adventure with Trail Adventours at Mt. Daraitan!

1. How hard is the climb?
Mt. Daraitan has a difficulty scale of 3/10, 10 being the hardest. It is a 3 to 4 hour trek straight ascent to the summit and a gradual descend on the way to Tinapak river.

2. How do we get to Daraitan?
This is exciting. We take private vehicles to Rizal, 3 hour travel time, then a gondola-like boat to cross a river and finally a quick tricycle ride to make it to the jump off point!

4. What if it rains?
The trek will be more challenging as the trail will be muddy and slippery. Let's prepare accordingly thus we require everyone to bring rain protection such as raincoats and poncho. If a storm signal is raised in the area the climb is automatically called off. For other decisions on cancelation the management will announce this to everyone.

5. Are there restrooms in the mountain?
There are decent restrooms and shower areas at the jump-off point. Aside from these there are no other restrooms.

6. Is there mobile signal?
The jump-off point and majority of the parts of the mountain will not have signal. There is signal at the summit.

7. Is this ideal for beginners?
We suggest climbing a level 1 or 2 climb before climbing Mt. Daraitan but if you are confident about your physical fitness and have an active lifestyle then you are more than welcome to join this climb.

8. How big is the group?
At an average we have 12-15 participants plus your guides for this adventure but we can accommodate up to 24 climbers for this adventure.

9. Can we enter the cave? 
This will depend on the phase of the group. If time permits then we can enter the cave.
