Overview

Located in Southern Batangas, the peninsula known for its diving resorts in Anilao. Mt. Gulugod-Baboy provides outdoor enthusiasts a sidetrip from their diving escapades and is now a popular hiking destination. There are three peaks on the range and the third has a large, ancient tree known to hikers as the Gulugod-Baboy. From southeast to northwest, there is Gulugod-Baboy, Gitna and Pinagbanderahan.
 
At the peak, you will be mesmerized by the Janao Bay, Maribacan strait, a faint outline of distant Mindoro, Verde Island and Batangas Bay. Other exceptional scenery like the mountains of Lobo, Mt. Pinamucan, Mt. Maculot, Mt. Batulao, the city and port of Batangas and Tagaytay Highlands. Before heading back to Manila, enjoy the sand and sea to cool off from a tiring day.
