Mt. Batolusong

Book Now!


Mt. Batolusong is a great destination for hikers looking for a quick jaunt in the countryside without venturing too far from Manila. You can leave the city in the morning, take in the rolling hills and the fresh air, and be back home in time for dinner.

The mountain is part of the Sierra Madre range, with the jump-off point at Tanay, Rizal – just two hours away from Manila by jeep. The trail takes hikers through rice fields, before commencing on a steep but relatively quick ascent up the mountain face that goes past wooded areas and beautiful rock formations. Near the end of the trail is Mapatag plateau (645 meters above sea level) with its windswept grassland slopes that are excellent for camping and picnics. Those looking for more of a challenge can continue up the trail to Susong Dalaga peak/Rangyas Peak (780 MASL) where you can possibly catch a glimpse of Mounts Banahaw and San Cristobal further to the south.
