Batangas 2016: Mt. Pinagbanderahan (Gulugod-Baboy)

Early this year, I started my travel journey in hiking at Mt. Gulugod-baboy (Mt. Pinagbanderahan) in Mabini, Batangas. I am sorry but I am not a big fan of hiking really. But I don't know what kind of spell that my colleague did to convince me to go with them. Hahaha. 

We hopped in bus going to Batangas Grand Terminal in South Station Terminal Alabang at 8:00 AM (January 23). We arrived at Batangas terminal around 9:30am and look for a jeep bound to Mabini. There were group of people heading also to Mt. Gulugod Baboy that day. We talked to jeepney driver and agreed to split the jeepney rent with other group and he will wait for us until we got back from the hike. Yey! We arrived at 10:30am. We pay the registration fee and we hired a guide :)

Registration area :)
We took first an early lunch at nearby carinderia and changed our clothes :) We started our hike at past noon.

Start of hike. Wew! We walked on very steep concrete road.

The hike was quite challenging :) (sabi kasi burol lang eh kaloka) The jeepney driver and his son joined us and served as our guide. Because our "original guide" was with the other group which ahead of us. haha (stop over pa more kasi, naiwan tuloy)

We had a lot of stopovers hahaha.

The summit can reach in just an hour but we took 2 hours because of stop overs, hahaha! 

The reward of it was the breath taking view :)
