FUN AT Mt. Balagbag


Trail Difficulty: 2/10

Adventure Duration: 1 day/s

As part of the Sierra Madre range, Mt. Balagbag’s location is quite recognizable. At over 700 MASL, it stands in the middle of Central and Southern Luzon with a summit that offers a spectacular view of a wide horizon stretching from Malabon to Manila to Makati’s cityline to Parañaque and Baywalk.

Mt. Balagbag has been a favorite, not only of hikers, but also mountain bikers (who consider it as one of their favorites) because of its proximity to the Metro. The trail is one of the easiest that you can try, either by biking or hiking to the peak. 

If you want to share your life outdoors then Mt. Balagbag is your first step in doing so.

1. How do we get there?
We will be using private vehicles. Travel time is 2-3 hours. 

2. Is the climb ideal for beginners?
Yes. The trek is a continuous 2-3 hour ascent thru an exposed trail to the summit. Since it's possible to do the trek in 2 hours, we have more than enough time to rest, recover and have a relaxed time. 

3. Are there restrooms?
There are restrooms at the jump-off point. Also, after the climb we will spending time at a resort where one can swim on its pool. 

4. Is there a water source? 
None. However, there are some sari-sari stores along the way where one can buy water. We advise though not to depend your water on this as they may not be available.
