Mt. Pamitinan

Hiking, Caving, Swimming and food tripping all in one day!


FUN AT Mt. Pamitinan

Trail Difficulty: 4/10

Adventure Duration: 1 day/s

One of the popular destinations in Rizal, Mt. Pamitinan just like its neighboring mountains is known for its limestone formation with a magnificent view of Sierra Madre and Rizal province from the peak.

For those who want to experience something new, Mt. Pamitinan has a minor bouldering part which makes this destination challenging for some beginners. Along the trail, one will even see huge balete trees, bamboo trees and at the top some would see glimpse of eagles flying by. 

If time permits, you can even go caving at the Binacayan Cave. Some locals would say it used to be one of the hiding place of the Katipuneros during the Spanish occupation.

1. How hard is the climb?
Mt. Pamitinan has a difficulty scale of 4/10, 10 being the hardest. While it may just be a 2 to 3 hour trek straight ascent to the summit parts of the trail will be quite technical as you maneuver your way along lime stones. 

2. How do we get to Mt. Pamitinan?
We take private vehicles to Wawa Montalban, the jump off point of Mt. Pamitinan. 

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. Pamitinan. 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.
