Our original plan was in Laguna "Mt. Makiling" but due to bad weather, we decided to move our destination here in Batangas. For a three mountain hike of Mt. Apayang, Mt. Talamitam and Mt. Batulao. 🗻🏃

Jumpoff point at Brgy. Mataas na Pulo for Mt. Apayang and Mt. Talamitam. Please be reminded to bring extra water as the diffucilty of trail and weather may affect your exhaustion. I though this would be an easy climb for me but as we go up to our first destination for the summit in Mt. Apayang. All i can say is...

"Okay lang sumuka pero hindi tayo susuko!"

It's a 2hr assault going to the summit! But luckily the strong breeze help us out, reducing our sweat and thirst. Be sure to hire a guide to assure your trail going to the second destination. (Traverse to Mt. Talamitam) 👌💪

We had several breaks before arriving at the summit. But after seeing the wonderful beauty on top. All we can say is WOW! Struggle is real, but it's worth it.

After some snap photo's, we proceed to our next agenda Mt. Talamitam. It's a 30min trail to the next summit. There you can buy fresh "buko" or "halo-halo" to enjoy, for around 50pesos only. 🍧🍴

It's getting gloomy and dark. So after finishing our meal. We descend going to our extraction point. 💧☔☀

We reach our extraction point and gather the team to travel to Mt. Batulao. Its 3pm already but everyone is eager to finish our task!

Mt. Batulao also called BatuLOVE because of it's beauty for some beginner hiker. The trail is easy but have extra caution. The wind may also affect your hike, so please do not attempt to run and take photo or selfie without someone to watch over. 🚨🏃

Take note, they have different registration areas and a bit pricy. They also have no proper guide and registration site. So make sure to travel with someone whos been here to assure your tracks. 🗻

The strong wind make us a little worried and cautious on our footing. It's my second time here in this mountain so I recommend the new trail and traverse going down the old trail.

Reaching the summit after a 2hr hike. We really did it! Limiting our break to reach the summit on time for our sunset view. A simple way to enjoy our weekend. 🌄🏁

But wait there's more. After managing to get to our extration point. The main event is yet still to come! Were few minutes away from Tagaytay! And the best way to end the evening is get a bulalo for a dinner in Mahogany Market! 🍜🍚🍛
