1. How do we get there?
We will be using private vehicles. Travel time is 3 hours.
2. Is the climb ideal for beginners?
No. The trek is difficult and challenging. It is a 5 hour continuous ascent through 40 to 50 degree steep trails to the summit. However, if you are confident with your physical fitness then there will be no problem.
3. Are there restrooms?
There are restrooms at the jump-off point. It is possible to take a bath here.
4. Is there a water source?
None. Mt. Balingkilat is infamous for its very exposed and dry trails thus, 3L of water or more is required.
