Mt. Manabu


EXPLORE

FUN AT Mt. Manabu


Trail Difficulty: 2/10

Adventure Duration: 1 day/s

Mt. Manabu is an ideal hiking destination, especially for beginners. Located in Sto. Tomas, Batangas, the name of this beautiful mountain is a portmanteau of the Tagalog phrase “Mataas na Bundok,” which means “a mountain that is high.” Mt. Manabu’s name suits it perfectly because the higher parts of the mountain are usually covered in clouds.

The easy access to the peak as well as the short distance makes this trek ideal for beginners. The mountain is relatively easy, leaving you more time to enjoy the sights along the way. A white cross atop the peak marks the highest point of the mountain, and trekkers will find that the area resembles a park.

Along the way to the summit, several stations are available for stops or camping. The easy traverse has its trails covered by forests and interesting vegetation. It also passes through local residences that offer fruits, vegetables, and locally grown coffee for sale.
