Last updated: September 10, 2013

BACKGROUND
The same terrain of Mt. Batulao gives rise to its ‘younger sister’,
Mt. Talamitam, on another side of Nasugbu, Batangas. Although it lacks the cool breezes and grand landscapes of Batulao, it is a surprisingly wondrous mountain on its own right, with verdant cogon grass during the rainy season, and a challenging, 60-degree trail before the peak.

Talamitam is a mountain that had a more glorious past. It was named after the talamitam trees that used to grow on its slopes – a reminder of the time when Talamitam had lush vegetation and untarnished ecosystems. Today, it is a bald mountain, but efforts are underway to rehabilitate the peak with tree planting and other initiatives.

The trail to Talamitam is easy, taking just 1.5 to 2.5 hours to complete the trek up to the summit. However, it can be a very exhausting hike if the sun is up, because there is little tree cover.

The trail starts at the end of a rough road descent to Talamitam river, and from here, a short woodland trek would connect you to a grassland slope that has sparse vegetation. There are many trail variations, most of them leading to the plateau where the peak of Talamitam sits. From here, it is easy to just follow whichever trail leads to the peak.

The summit assault takes about 20-30 minutes; it does not require scrambling, and the trail is established, save for the talahib that can slow you down, especially during the rainy season.

At the summit, which hikers will share with the barn swallows that frequent it, there are nice views of the surrounding towns such as Nasugbu and Calatagan, Batangas as well as the hills and mountains of Maragondon. Notable peaks include Batulao to the southeast, Mt. Makiling which is partially covered by the Tagaytay ridge ENE), Pico de Loro (W), and the Lubang islands (SW).

Going back will take less than an hour, but take note that because of the many different trails, you might end up on another part of the village. So it is important to remember which trail you took going up. In case you end up on another trail, use Talamitam river to determine your position; do not panic as the terminal (i.e. eastward) end of the trails all end up in the highway.

After the trek, it is possible to tidy up or take a shower at the registration area in Brgy. Aga. Just like Mt. Batulao, a visit to Tagaytay is a relaxing finale. Considering that climbing Mt. Talamitam can actually take just half a day, an increasingly popular option is to combine the trek with a half-day hike of Mt. Batulao as a 'Twin Dayhike'.

Yes (1.5-3 hours to summit; 1-2 hours down)
600-900

ADDITIONAL CONCERNS
Local context. Two parties have competed for jurisdiction or 'caretaker' status on Mt. Talamitam. Historically, Nick Wijangco, a local resident and artist, was the one who welcomed hikers and collected a registration fee. On the other hand, Ted Calimag, who heads the 'Concerned Citizens of the Environment Movement' (CCEM) has also claimed jurisdiction and is the de facto (as of 2013) caretaker of the mountain. PinoyMountaineer does not take positions in local disputes and leave it up to the locals to settle whatever differences they have. 

MT. TALAMITAM PICTURES
The first highlight of the trek is to cross Talamitam river. As of May 2012, this bamboo bridge is no longer than reliable and locals say they are planning to build a new one. Otherwise, the river is shallow enough to be crossed by foot.

Past Talamitam river, the trail passes by a woodland.

Past the woodlands, gradual slopes, then a plateau emerges, with Mt. Talamitam's summit looming in the background. This is a grazing area, so expect to see some cows.

The summit can be a cool and breezy place with expansive views of the surrounding towns. Choose one of the rocks as your viewpoint, and enjoy!

Some of the mountains visible from the summit of Mt. Talamitam include nearby Mt. Batulao, Pico de Loro, a partially covered Mt. Makiling, and to the southwest, the peaks of Lubang group of islands in Occidental Mindoro.

TRIVIA
An optical illusion creates the impression that the peak on the right side of the summit is higher ground. This is not true; the highest point in Talamitam is where the trail ends.

Dear Fellow Mountaineers,

May 10, 2008 marks the coming out party of sorts for Mt. Talamitam. Most of you know that I have been toiling singly for the past seven years trying to conserve the area immediately surrounding Mt. Talamitam. Well, the time has come to announce to the world that we will band together to Conserve, Preserve and Nurture this ruggedly scenic, yet supremely accessible, area.

In the past, I organized different events separately. For the 10th of May, however, I have decided to lump the major events over one weekend. These are the following:

RIVER CLEANUP. Our mandate is to have teams spread out along the Calo River. One hundred volunteers did a magnificent job last year. We invite more people to come this year to sweep a longer stretch of this beautiful headwaters. This cleanup was televised last year. This year all the events will be covered by some TV network.

SHADE TREES. Four (4) relatively large trees need to be manually hauled to Talamitam's peak to provide shade next summer. We need volunteer mountaineering clubs to vouch for each tree.

MAMA MARY STATUE. Climbers who have assaulted the peak lately know that the statue mounted a meter below the peak has been decapitated. I am presently hustling to sculpt a replacement. Aside from the team that volunteers to manually haul the statue of Mama Mary to the peak, we need doctor mountaineers to accompany a brigade of elderly ladies who want to join the pilgrimage.

MOUNTAIN BIKE. The Talamitam area is perfect terrain for mountain bikes; however, I am already way too swamped with numerous chores to include this event. If anybody out there wants to organize a race, please coordinate with me.

ADVENTURE RACE. I will try to have Mr. Jong Narciso organize one for the May 10th event; however, this person is always running a race somewhere around the country so volunteer adventure race organizers are welcome.

RAPPELLING & ZIP LINES. Both of these will be set up for May 10. A beginner rappel wall will be introduced; as well as a 50-meter zip line. In the future, we will open a very challenging 100-meter wall for the more experienced wall fanatics.

During last year's river cleanup, Montanara decided to support big time. Several backpacks were sent our way along with numerous, sandals, belt bags, etc. We urge you to help Sir Nick solicit other items to make the raffle into an event by itself.

Registration for this year will be 350 pesos for the first 300 volunteers. This includes the inevitable tee shirt, a fiesta dinner, certificate (am shooting for a plaque, if time allows for it) and ringside seats to the outdoor concert. A mountaineer band (ANITTO) signed up to play a couple of weeks ago and yes, climbers, the legendary JOEY AYALA gave me his nod just this morning. Any mountaineer cum raggae band out there want to join this elite company?

Another plus, mountaineers! Ariel Dalisay (PAL/MC), designer par excellence, has agreed to design the tee for this year. This fact alone makes the garment a collectible. Also, spillover registration will be a hundred pesos per head.

Please join me in trying to preserve a miniscule piece of God's earthly home. Thank you.

Nicolas "Sir Nick" Wijangco

Good Day, is mt. talamitam possible for a night trek?

gideon said...

yes, talamitam can be night trekked. just be careful in the final legsince its quite steep.

Anonymous said...

is there a guide to rent and how much

gideon said...

there is no need for a guide but you can request for one at the brgy. hall. for a quick trip, 250-300 would be a reasonable fee.

rorenz said...

mga sir, san ba yung brgy. hall? kasi last time we were there (august 2008) registration is done in another house somewhere past Sir Nick's.

Mark David said...

hi, im planning to go there this weekend and it seems i'll be hiking alone... is there a landmark that identifies the trailhead? where can i ask for directions once i drop off at Sitio Bayabasan?

Mark David said...

and by the way, is there a part of the trail where you need to cross water on foot, like a river or creek maybe? thanks in advance for the info :)

Anonymous said...

markdavid pede ba makisama sa talamitam mo this weekend?

gideon said...

between now and 2007, what has changed is the registration: now its with the brgy. hall instead of mang nick. the area is quite populated and directions shouldn't be a problem once there.

as for the river, there's a hanging bridge so you dont have to worry about crossing it by foot.

thanks sir gideon!

hi, di pa ako actually sure sa dayhike on saturday, all of my buddies have already cancelled, pero kung matuloy po ako i'll be glad to join others if they'll be climbing too... i'll probably arrive at the jumpoff point between 7 to 8 in the morning. kita-kits nalang po sa mga aakyat din, anywhere on the trail :)

by the way, some of my officemates will be climbing mt. batulao in the afternoon on saturday, and perhaps ill be joining them too if i get down from talamitam early, since malapit na rin naman. sama din po kayo kung trip niyo :) they plan to spend the night there and go to the beach the next morning.

Mark David said...

The summit of Mt. Talamitam offers a great view of Mt. Batulao. When viewed from Talamitam's south-east side, it looks like a horse-shoe-shaped mountain range in the middle of a vast plain (it actually even reminds me of the enemy Raider ships from the Battlestar Galactica series, hehe). Personally, I think the summit of Talamitam offers a slightly more spectacular 360-degree view of the Batangas landscape than the one offered by Mt. Batulao.

It stopped raining yesterday and I decided to go ahead with my scheduled Talamitam trek alone. But because of the recent rainshowers, I went there all geared-up for a wet and windy hike, totally not expecting that it'd turn out to be an unbearably hot day. Foolish me didn't even bring enough liquids, thinking that it would be just an hour up the mountain. And I actually even thought I could catch up with my officemates in Batulao in the afternoon and just reload my pack with water at Evercrest. But my tightly-scheduled plan was already a wreck from the beginning. First, I arrived at the jump-off point 2 hours late. And technically, I didn't even arrive at the correct jump-off point. The bus driver forgot to drop me off at Sitio Bayabasan despite the constant reminders of the bus conductor. I walked about 40 paces back and saw a concrete waiting shed, and at its right is a narrow trail going down a forested area. I remembered reading somewhere that there's a concrete shed at the jump-off point so I thought that was it. I even confirmed it with a local who lives right across the highway and he said that it was the trail. Well it did turn out to be a Talamitam trail but I later learned from the locals living on the mountain that mountaineers usually take another trail, the main trail which passes by the registration area as well as sir Nick's place. I think they called it the Bayabasan trail. The trail I took had me crossing only one footbridge instead of the two bridges described on most Talamitam directions that I've read. Locals on this trail said that I can only register on the other side, and so based on their advice, I continued with my ascent and decided to just register and pay the fee on my way back.

Coincidentally, I took a wrong turn inside one of the small forested areas in the trail and somehow managed to get to the main trail. But weird as it is, when I asked the locals there they told me the opposite of what I've been told earlier. They confirmed that it is a trail leading to sir Nick's place but told me that registrations are now done at the house of Konsehal Ruben that lies on the other trail, the one I took before, so I backtracked. When I got back to the other trail and started asking for the councilor's house, I was surprised to see that it's just beside the house of one lady who told me earlier that registrations are done on the other side. Very funny. Exhausted and thirsty as I was, I just settled to do the registration there. So long as I got to register and pay the fee, I'm fine with it. I just wanted to escape the smoldering mountain already.

By the way, I remembered this page indicated that the way to the summit is a steep 100-meter assault. I should have considered that more carefully before. When I was approaching the foot of the summit trail, it looked almost just like a hill to me and I even thought to myself that it must be the easiest summit assault that I've seen so far. Cocky me even felt thankful to finally be on what I thought would be the easy part. Only later did I realize, just halfway towards the summit, that it only appeared to be easy as my thighs started to feel like they're about to get heat cramps. The words "100-meter steep assault" kept ringing in my mind like the sound of my own voice laughing at my own discomfort, hehe. By the time I've descended back down at the foot of the summit, after getting a short rest at the peak, I no longer had anything to drink and had already been under the sun's scorching heat for about 3 hours since I stared the trek. The entire hike took me about 4 hours, including an accumulated one hour that I spent talking to the locals about the Bible, taking the opportunity as I run across some of them along the trail. I just figured I'd make the most of my time there, and I thought it's also a good way to kill time as I took short rests under the unforgiving sun.

It was quite a lesson for me, coming there feeling prepared but turning out to be mostly wrong about my assumptions, particularly with the weather. Even with arm covers, a cap and a veil, my skin had been searing with heat all the time. It's funny but images of soldiers doing patrol in the hot Iraqi and Afghan deserts even came to mind and I felt real pity for them. I felt as if for a few hours I could relate with their hardships, hehe. On my way back, just when I was about 60 paces away from the jump-off point, the left side of my heart was feeling stiff and I was palpitating like crazy. I could already hear the sounds of vehicles passing by the highway almost just up above me, but I felt like I was about to get a heatstroke so I just stopped where I was, unloaded my pack off my back and rested until my heart rate was close to normal. The sight of a sari-sari store right across the highway felt like God-sent when I was finally out of the trail.

So I no longer bothered to join my officemates in Mt. Batulao that afternoon, since I was already exhausted and my weekend schedule prevents me from joining their overnight camping anyway, which would mean I'd have to climb back down that night.

The wide comfortable seats and satisfyingly-cold air-conditioning system of the Golden Dragon bus (Erjohn & Almark Transit) that i took on my way home became a much-appreciated finale to my troubled solo hike.

Mark David said...

oops, sorry, i got carried away with the story-telling.

DogWalker said...

just wanna ask if the territorial carabao is still there. my friend has been to talamitam three times, 1998 to 2002, and they always got attacked by this carabao and the group sustained injuries from simple wounds to a broken arm. I don't see any reference to such in the article and comments, but I would just like to check. Thanks!

Mark David said...

hi man, i saw almost a dozen carabaos there but fortunately no one attacked me. many are tied down to trees, although some are roaming freely, and i can't seem to remember seeing one with long horns. there were even a couple of times that i passed by a carabao right along the trail, just a feet way. i've been rather careless a couple of times. so i don't know about any territorial carabaos as far as the trail that i took is concerned, but i guess it's best to be very watchful of any animals around and give them a wide berth as much as possible.

DogWalker said...

Thanks, Mark. So it's really carabao country up there, huh? At least none seems to be that fiercely territorial, although I do agree that respect should be afforded those beasts. We're planning Talamitam as an alternative to Batulao in case weather turns less than ideal. I hope tomorrow's weather will be as nice as the previous days'.

Anonymous said...

Been to Batulao recently, and yeah, nakakatakot yung mga bovines dun. Actually di ako nakasummit because of them. Sobra takot ko plus the fact that masama talaga makatingin. FYI, registration is sa Sitio Bayabasan along the trail, some blocks away sa house ni Sir Nick (yung me treehouse). Naligaw kami kasi sa hinanap namin ung KM83, eh walang tao at hindi pla dun ung registration. You can as well explore the river along the way.

concern mountaineer said...

napaka gulo ng mga issue dito sa Mt.Talamitam lalo na sa Caretaker simula nung inalis si Sir Nick.. may mga nagpapangap pa na pinsan?? tsk! tsk! Sana may isang nakaka intindi ng sitwasyon at magkaron ng bagong CARETAKER na may alam sa pag-aalaga ng mga bundok ng inaakyat nating mga mountaineers o ibalik si Sir Nick.

Andami ng nagawa ni Sir Nick na big projects sa Mt. Talamitam at may mga plano pa para sa ikagaganada nito. Sana ganun ang ilagay sa posisyong caretaker.

Kung titignan nyo ang Mt.Talamitam ngayon ay kulay lupa na. Lalo na grass land bago mo start ng summit treak dahil sa mga kaingin at pag araro ng lupa para mataniman. Tapos ang daming trail ngayon kung ano anong pinag bubutas nila. Merong pang nag iilegal loging sa forest sa right side ng Mt.Talamitam. Nagkaron ng project pero palpak, eh tree planting ka ba naman sa SUMMIT??? eh camp site yun? papano makakapag tent dun? Pero hndi din nabuhay yung mga tinanim dahil last na punta ko dun nung december eh walang mga tanim sa summit.

Tapos ang laki ng registration fee! grabe! Ang registration fee's daw ng mga mountaineers ay ginagamit sa mga project sa barangay at ang iba ay napupundo sa pondo ng city hall.

Grabe toh! Hndi ba dapat ay may sariling pondo ang barangay para pagandahin ang kanilang barangay? Ang mga projects dapat ay para sa pagpapaganda ng kabundukan, ang muling pagbabalik ng ganda na kalikasan. Dapat ganito ang mga pinaglalaban nating mga mountaineers. Ang nangyayari eh pera pera ang habol.

Isa sa paborito kong bundok ang Mt.Talamitam pero nadismaya ako nung akoy muling nagbalik dito kaya ako nag comment dito. Sana ay magtulong tulong tayo sa pagbalik ng kaayusan sa Mt. Talamitam

Tayong mga Mountaineers ang dapat mag salba nito. Lalo na sa illegal loging na nangyayari dito.

All concerned mountaineers,

Lets us open our eyes to see the real truth of the present caretaker of the mt. talamitam who is the person who talk less but more in action, dont judge him see first the person what he can do in the mt. talamitam.We filipinos like to appreciate people who talks flowery words but beyond on his inner character what achievement that have done,wake up bro & sis of mountaineers & dont be blind for the truth, if you want the truth inquire to the barangay the background of the person you claim he has done good things in talamitam,which you call Sir Nick you will see the truth.
The true person who takecare mt talalmitam is CCBM which is lead by Bro. Ted Calimag his the person who does not intent to take money for their own pocket & personal interest.The registration fee is for the better & goodness of the barangays thats leads to mt.talamitam & its surrounding.
So lets join & be a part of a good & decent motives od Bro Ted Calimag.
Do not believe what you only read & listen, seek the truth & truth will prevail.

PAGLILINAW:

Tunkol s mga naging accomplish project ng CCBM ay pinalalabas ni nicky wijanco n sya ang my effort nito n ayon nrin s mga bisitang mountaineers n ngamaslasakit n syang ngpabatid s pmunuan ng CCBM. subalit 2nay n makakpagsabi n mga concerned citizen n resedente n lahat ay pawang kasinungalingan sapagkat mula p ng hawakan nya ang mga mountaineers n umaakyat s mt. talamitam almost 10yrs. ay walang maipakita n sinsabi n mga BIG PROJECT. kaya sya inalisan ng karapatan ng 2 sang. Brgy at ng bayan s dahilang hindi sya susumiti ng 2nay at kaukulang halaga s brgy. S maraming ngsaang panahon kaya kung ang sinsabi n pera2X lng ang dahilan , diba itio ay payurak s sng. Brgy. At sng. Bayan at s mamamayan.
SUBALIT sino kaya s palagay ntin s loob ng napkahabang panahon ang my personal n interest
spgkat ayon s sng. Brgy. Ay maslking halaga ang hindi niya iniririmit, pinababatid s lahat n ang pagkakatalaga n c nicky wijanco n ito ay VERBAL n usapan lamang ang pagkatalaga s taong ito ngunit ng dumating ang mga panahon n nais ng alisin s kanya ng sng. Brgy. Kayrilaw ay ayaw parin niyang bitawan ngayon cnu kaya s palasgay natin ang my personal n interest? Sinasabi niya n ang mga mountaineers dw n sya ay manatili subalit ayon nrin s maraming mountaineers n itong c nicky ay maraming modus sapagkat kami man ng mga resedente ay makakapagpapa2nay n 22o. BAKIT? Spgkat marami syang gingawang activity n gumagamit ng mga facilities ng ibang tao n walang permit s my ari at s sng. Brgy. n kumukuha p sya ng mga big sponsor n ayon lng s knyang sariling interest.
Kaya naman ipinababatid s lahat ng makaririceive ng mensahing ito, n ito ay ilan lamang s mga paglilinaw n mula p may 10 2007, ay inalisan n syang karapatan n mula s 2 sng.brgy. Aga at Kayrilaw n magsgwa p ng anumang activity.

Kaya ng mula ng binigyan ng karapatan ang pamunuan ng CCBM ng 2 sng. Brgy. at ng sng. Bayan ay wlang 1yr. ay nakapag sumiti kmi ng tamang kaukulang halaaga s 2 brgy. Aga at Kayrilaw. At kami ang syang 2nay n ligalidad n my karapatan para magreceive ng mga panauhint mountaineers. Kaya sana po makipag ugnayan po tayo s COCERNED CITIZEN 7& BAYANIHAN MOVEMENT (CCBM) upang maiwasan ang pglabag alituntunin ng CCBM, BRGY, AT SNG. BAYAN. Sapagkat kmi ay isa s my karapatan n magdisiplina s sinumang bisitang mountaineers n lalabag s mga magndang alituntunin ng lahat ng mga pamunuan.
Ito ay mga ilang bahagi plang po ng mga paglilinaw.

Kaya s anu p mang information makipag ugnayan lng po tayo Number n ito Bro Ted Calimag 09156251886/09078066909 & Mila Ranges 09084773803

I was very sad about wats happening in this area.. Naapektuhan ang grupo dito.. I have nothing against CCBM but dont try to make things personal just because we are close to sir nick. We had a lot of fun with sernick during our climb most specially our guests. Sana lang, leave the mountaineers to relax and not to get involve in this political crap. Ilagay lang sa lugar kung me gustong mensahe ang pamunuan ng CCBM at huwag harangin sa daan at pakialaman ang mga gustong mgrelax.

rgds sir gids!

Brgy. Aga, Nasugbu, Batangas



NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC



This is to notify the public to be cautious to MR. NICKY WIJANCO for allegedly carrying unlicensed, illegal firearm that causes chaos and commotion to the public.

On an instance, this day, February 17, 2009, around 7:00a.m.–8:00a.m., the said person who had some heat argument with someone resulting in threatening individuals by pointing out his gun to the public, which includes innocent children, women, and many others in CCBM Headquarters at Sitio Bayabasan, Barangay Aga, Nasugbu, Batangas which not included to his premises.

He was been blottered at Sangguniang Barangay Aga and Municipal Police.

if ever this allegations are true, knowing sir Nick,he will not do that if he was not forced or provoked to do so. one posted here something about threatening people who are close to Sir Nick. as what we have experienced, if they see you with sir nick or his family, they will be looking at you as if you are an enemy... it's so strange. the first time we were at Talamitam we felt so alarmed about the situation without any background yet of what's happening there... most of the locals are not as hospitable as the locals from other places we've been to. someone even stole our bag of food! What a shame!

as an individual, I hope and pray that everyone at Talamitam be united otherwise,many groups will be hesitant to climb Mt Talamitam.
They will not only be deprived of their passion but also of the spectacular view of talamitam from the summit.

I hope this can be resolved as soon as possible.

ano to ??? hmmmmm pls fellow mountaineers dont involve in this argument yaan natin sila to settle this "problem" if we call, and to all mountaineers who personaly know sir nick pls dont comment here in this blog. nalilito lang po ang mga katribo nating namumundok. peace yo! goodluck and happy climbing

kidlat said...

hmmm...on the contrary, everyone is entitled to their opinion and as mountaineers we cannot be silent about what we feel is right.

kilala ko si mang nick since 2000 pa and i think he's a good person who'se doing his best to protect the environment. tatahimik nlng b tau and keep quiet in the persecution of our friend?

gideon said...

let us keep politics out of the mountains! PinoyMountaineer does not believe it is the role of mountaineers to involve themselves in local quibbles UNLESS we are aware of all the facts and we feel that we are stakeholders as to the outcome of the conflict.

i hope the issue regarding mt. talamitam will be resolved meanwhile, mt. talamitam will be labeled as an area of concern in this website and we will discourage hikers from visiting the mountain until the conflict is settled.

comments on this page will be moderated.

dahong palay mountaineer said...

DPM was the group/persons that were threatened to be banned at mt. talamitan just because we are close to ser nick. we do not violated any of the procedures of CCBM. It is not fair! I think this is another move by CCBM. As to the blotter, indeed that ser nick had a heated arguments with, i think, one of CCBM but i dont think he will point a gun to someone especially women or children. Let spare Mt. Talamitam on this political and personal conflicts. Mr. Nick is a good person as i know him long before CCBM was organized. I am with Ser Nick.

Thanks for posting this Ser Gids! More Power!

Hi - I just want to say that this argument on who will be in charge or not - this is going nowhere! Why can't all of you be responsible to look after the mountain and the surrounding areas. If Nikki wants to do some activities for mountaineers? - so be it!! Nikki is smart and he know what he is doing in terms of protecting the environment. I like the idea of activities like rapelling, clean up, tree planting and other outdoor activities. He've been to different places in the world like me. If I'm there - I will definitely assist you in doing projects like that. Ted Calimag - I know you want things in order and organized. You have a heart of gold too. Why can't you guys work together for common good. I have been to different parts of the world like Canada, US, Thailand, Vietman, Mauritius, Cuba, Indonesia, Malaysia but no chaos like this. Locals are helping each other to promote the areas and to gain more visitors.

I grew up in that area - I grew up looking up in that mountain every morning when I was a kid. Climbing Mt. Talamitam helped me to be adventurer and learn to love outdoor and nature. So please stop fighting over a mountain. It's for all climber to enjoy. Nikki and Ted - please - be friends and compromise please - you both dont want it to be like in a war zone like in Israel and Palestines. Just work together.

I even plan to promote that place to some travel shows here Toronto but if theres chaos like that - its not worth it because it will be embarrassing to those climbers.

By the way, Nikki - you did a great job with the website! Kudos to you.

Lastly, please, stop fighting and work together.

Cheers,
Concern climber from Toronto

dahong palay mountaineers said...

Sa taong concern,

ingat kmi san? ano ang pwdng mangyari kung ngbibigay kmi ng kumento sa mga nakita at naranasan namin. Gaya nga ng nasabi ng iba, ang barangay ay me sariling pondo. Dapat ang pinaglalaanan nila ng pera na nakukuha sa mga kpwa nmin mountaineer ay ung pagprotekata sa bundok! bakit nasunog ang talamitam? bakit madaming illegal logging na ngyayari sa paligid? bakit sobrang dami ng ng trail n ddaanan maraming naliligaw? ndi b dapt maglagay sila ng trail sign? bakit putol2 ang kalsada? yan sana ang maicip nyo ndi lng ang pagsasaayos ng bakod o at kung ano pa.

Jay Z said...

I knw sir Nick Wijangco hindi ako naniniwala na mag threaten cya ng mga women and children he is a good man and kung may nangyari man na ganun i knw may dahilan. hindi gagawa ng ganung drastic action si sir nick ng walang malalim na reason. maraming projects si sir nick sa mt. talamitam dumating pa nga sa point that sir nick needs to shed out even his family's budget para lang mapagbigyan ang mga batang nangangailangan ng school supplies nung nag reach out projects sila. His family took care of our group nung inabot kami ng malakas na ulan.. they even cooked for us kahit late na its my 1st climb years ago... sana lang magkaisa na ang lahat sa mt. talamitam.. sir nick only wants to help as much as he can tama na ang politics, sa new management ng mt. talamitam sana naman wag nyong i threaten ang mga mountaineers na gustong mag climb sa talamitam just because they are close to sir nick...pumapanik na ang mga mountaineers sa talamitam long before ur management and in those times si sir nick ang pinupuntahan namin u cannot blame us for being close to him since wala siyang pinakita sa aming masama and he took good care of us in those times.. to sir ted calimag lets just focus on the real issue in mt. talamitam that is how to improve the mountain for future climbers para po mapakinabangan pa ito ng mga susunod na generations kahit wala na tayo. willing po ang lahat ng mga mountaineers na tumulong sa mga projects nyo as long as it is for the benefit of the mountain. Magkaisa na po sana ang lahat. sa ginagawa po nating d pagkakaintindihan wala pong ibang nag suffer kundi tayong mga mountaineers and of course the mountain itself. itigil na din po natin ang pag bad mouth kay sir nick wala naman po itong idudulot na maganda lalo lang po nag hesitate ang mga climbers na mag trek there and dalawin ang talamitam. Sir nick Hang in there you dont need to explain anything.. naniniwala kami sir sa good intentions nyo for the mountain.. ur a good man never loose hope dba sir "u can never put a good man down and bad weather brings out the best in a man" we support u all the way sir nick just hang in there...nandito lang kami sir sa likod mo lang kami.. magkaisa na po sana tayong lahat para sa ikabubuti ng mt. talamitam. peace to all.

pinaka maganda dito ay gumawa na lang ng ibang daan paakyat ng talamitam para wala ng magaway...sa dpm,,wag na kyong makialam sa gusot ng mga locals,,madadamay pa ang ibang mountaineer na walang kinalaman sa inyo...

salamat..

Anonymous said...

to dahong palay mountaineer,

i agree po sayo sir...ang barangay me sariling pondo nga naman yan...projects as such bakod whatsoever shall be coming from the funds of the barangay and not from the mountaineers. amount collected from the mountaineers shall really be used for the protections of the mountain and its surroundings... kakalungkot yung nagyayaring sunugan ng bundok jan every year... totoo din na madami ng trails...naligaw din po kami...me mga kasama pa kami na lumusot na sa highway sa dami na ng trail di na nila alam alin ang susundan nila, nagpaikot ikot at nawala sila for almost an hour or so.

sana po maayos na ito.

gideon said...

i think the DPM guys deserve to voice their comments and NO ONE should dare threaten any mountaineering club or any mountaineer who isn't violating any rules! especially not on this website!

i am inviting the CCBM to email us at info@pinoymountaintaineer.com if they wish to clarify things regarding this. as for sir nick, i am in touch with him and he told me that the "threatening women and children" statement is totally false.

meanwhile i am temporarily suspending the option to post a comment in this page. pinoymtnr is not a venue for bickering. marami pang bundok sa pilipinas, i suggest we turn our eyes on other mountains without issues like this.

May alam akong bundok na pinag aawayan noon at alam mo nyo ba kung ano ang nangyari nagka landslide at walang nakinabang, ngayon malapit na rin itong MT. TALAMITAN kasi pinag aawayan na rin pag nagalit ang inang kalikasan gugunawin nya yan magkaka landslide at maraming mamatay tapos papareparehong walang makikinabang…mga Mountineers Huwag na huwag n kayo aakyat dyan magulo na pag wala nang umaakyat na Mountineers dyan saka lang sila magkakasundo na dapat pala nag kaisa na lng sila kasi pareho naman sila ng layunin…

Nagpaluto pa nga kame ng masarap na nilaganf bulalo sa kanila. Ngayun, nung umagang magising kame, may mga pulis na nagpunta sa hauz nya. Baket? Kase nanutok raw xa ng baril nung gabe raw... E panu mangyayare yun? E kasama naman namen xa eh... so again, my politics nga talaga sa place na yun... wala ako sa nangyayare dun, ngayun lang ng mabasa ko sa posts rito.... baket kaya ganun? mabuti naman intention ni sir nick and for years, napangalagaan nya ng maayus ang bundok.... though medyo panget na ngayun kse nakakalito na s dame ng trails na binutas ng bagong nangangalaga. anyways, sana maayus na ang issue na to... and i hope sa mtagal na panahong may napatunayan si sir nick, sana maibigay na lang sa kanya un pangangalaga at magkaron na xa ng peace of mind since he never wish anything bad against mt. Talamitam... he was a good guy and i can see he is hurt because of what is happening sa mountain ngayun... medyo marame part ng nakakalbo duon, sayang.... sayang... :(

gud pm guys ayoko na sanang buksan pa ang issue sa mt. talamitam since parang wala na yatang katapusan ang issue dito... however last week nag overnyt kami sa talamitam for a twin peak climb for newbie mountaineers im with engineers,it specialist,outsourcing agents,financial consultants and an australian national all from manila sir nick and mam tess cooked for us and we had a great time however early sunday morning may mga police na dumating and they told us na nanutok daw ng baril si sir nick how can it be?! kasama namin cya! well it only shows one thing may politics talaga sa bundok na ito...and pinagkakaisahan talaga siya.. i felt sad for sir nick a man who loves to protect mother nature as well as the great outdoors being treated like this... sir nick's exact words ... " Now you see...this is what im going thru everyday...." bakit kailangan mangyari ang ganitong bagay sa ating kaibigan? na nagsilbi na din nating second home at ikalawang ama everytime na pumapanik tayo sa bundok na ito. As a mountaineer all i can do is to voice out ang mga nangyayaring ito kay sir nick...sana naman matapos na ang pag assault nila kay sir nick.. he's not getting any younger.. all the good man wants to do is to help as much as he can. sana matapos na ang kaguluhang ito at maging maayos na ang lahat. sir nick hang in there sir nandito lang kaming mga mountaineers hindi kami nawawala sir ur always included sa aming mga prayers.

Hello!! kamusta sa lahat..

nais ko lang ipabatid na magingat kayo sa pagbaba ng Mt. Talamitam dahil recently lang ay napagtanto ng grupo na nakakalito na ang bagbaba dito dahil sa spegetti trail na nangyare. daming daan daming butas. sinasabing para mapadali ang trail ngunit ang nangyayare eh nakakasama pa lalo sa mga climbers ang sitwasyon. mahalaga pa rin talaga ang pag gawa ng tral sign. tandaan ang mga lugar na dapat daanan. ingat din sa lugar na maraming taniman at nag kalat ang mga asong gala. hahabulin kayo pramis. kaya nyo naman tumakbo ng may dalang fulpak eh. kaya ok lang yun. durog nga lang ang likod mo. hahaha!

It not the responsibility of taking care of the mountain and its environment that the so called ccem is after. Their just after the profit. I been climbing mt. talamitan on a regular basis. I have no complaints whether I pay at the brgy or sir nick. I dont recall ever meeting any CCEM doing their effort to restore the mountain. We However have meet on different occasion armed groups that you would not mistake for a local brgy official.

isang makalikasan pagbati po sa lahat. tanong ko lang po kung may update sa IT ng Talamitan at kung kailangan po ba ng guide. akyat po kami sa sept.12,2009. nakakaligaw po ba pag-akyat. ano po ba mga kailangan preparation? may water source po ba sa taas?

salamat po.. pa email na lang po. igim_tm@yahoo.com

sir gid, posible po ba na akyatin mag-isa ang talamitam? wala po bang ligaw?
aakyat kasi ang mga kasama ko ng batulao ng saturday. naisip ko lang na umakyat muna ko ng talamitam ng friday. posible rin po ba yun?
galing ba ng talamitam may masasakyan papunta sa ng batulao?
maraming salamat sir at sana matulungan nyo ko!

Notice to Public:
Last September 26, 2009, typhoon Ondoy destroyed Major areas in Luzon. That includes the Batangas province where Mt. Talamitam can be found. The typhoon destroyed 4 major bridges leading to the mountain and caused some other landslides that happened during the typhoon.
If you happen to see pictures showing the things that the typhoon destroyed and if someone is asking for help (e.g. money and/or in kind), please ignore their call for help. Rather, if you really want to extend some help, please go directly or negotiate with Barangay Aga, Barangay Kayrilaw, or Sangguniang Bayan ng Nasugbu.

Thank you and be blessed!

We went here last time and, we have just realize the conflicts. Beauty is now compromised by progress. I hope they make the appropriate action before it is too late. The river is now used in everyday man's activities, Thank God we can still drink water from the roots. However the trail is still there but after the ARC, the trail is almost done due to unending expansion of crops for the locals basic needs? At the peak, trash are still there but can still have time for peace, but not during the day, for the SUN will burn anyone who dares to stay there.. After that make sure to give respect to the one man who believes for the true preservation of the mountain, TATAY NIC
that's all, Good Luck folks!

sir at mam,

tingnan niyo ang mt. talamitam ngayon wag ang caretaker at barangay.

dapat green is good pero ang nangyari brown is good sa mt. talamitam.

wag na kayo umakyat sa mt. talamitam hayaan natin ang mga tao at barangay doon ang mangalaga sa bundok.

no climb, no fee, tingnan natin kung totoo ang sinasabi nila na concern sila sa mt. talamitam.

Did this hike a week ago. Started 10AM and hit the summit 11:30AM. Started our descend around 12noon and finished by 1:30PM. So it's basically an hour and a half each to climb up and down, leisure pace. Not the best timing since we got caught at the peak of the heat. I'd recommend doing this at night or early morning. It'll be much cooler. I also recommend bringing at least 1 liter of water and hiring the service of a guide (the trails aren't always so well defined or straightforward).

we've been to Talamitam last Saturday sept. 11, 2010. 3 lang kami night trek kami. we started treking about 1930hrs. and after 2hrs we've reached summit. may nakasabay kami along trail, na muntik sila maligaw... grabe lakas ng hangin sa summit medyo nasira tent ko(sabagay mumurahin lang tent ko)... kinabukasan panalo view sa taas, kitang kita ang Mt. Batulao and Mt. Palay-palay(pico de loro)...
we've decided to descend around 0900hrs and about 1015hrs sa jump off n kami para maligo.

sa pinagliguan namin na bahay medyo nalungkot at naalarma kami sa tinanong at kinwento ng isa sa officers ng CCEM. he ask us if "ok lang ba sa amin na i-quary yung part ng talamitam. isa daw kasi sa kilalang tao/mayaman na tao ang nagbabalak na ipa-quary ang part ng talamitam. kaya nangangalap ng pirma at suporta ang mga namumuno sa CCEM ng pirma ng mga mountaineer. sana daw maraming mga mountaineer p ang umakyat sa Talamitam para makakuha sila ng suporta.

fellow mountaineer i hope na suportahan natin ang ipinaglalaban ng mga nangangalaga sa talamitam. huwag natin sanang hayaan na masira ang kalikasan... bigay sa aiin ito ng may kapal para pagyamanin at pangalagaan hindi para pagkakitaan at sirain lamang...

kung mayroon sa inyo gusto makahingi ng info about transfo papuntang talamitam. txt nyo lang ako baka sakali makatulong... 09205255163

hi. we did a talamitam climb last nov6. although rainy when we started to trek, it was a smooth climb. we even met new friends 3 climbers from manila and from 4 adamson ms who almost got lost due to a late start of trek. (thanks at nakapagsocials po tayo)thanks to the locals who volunteered to guide them.

update:
trails are getting worse. horses are also using the same trail as mountaineers do. sana magseparate sila ng trail para sa mga visitors.
lalo na dun sa grassland-forest trail.

natawa nalang ako kase may nakita akong animal droppings sa summit. ibig sabihin may nakakaakyat na hayop dun. asteeg..

the locals are kind hearted and they wont take advantage of the visitors. definitely babalik kami.

I trekked Mt Talamitam at night with a buddy. Both of us hadn't climbed Talamitam then. We got lost a bit at the "cogon jungle". The grass was taller than us. Trekking through it at night is like getting trapped in Daedalus' labyrinth. Don't challenge a Cogon field at night! But fortunately we found the main trail after about 10 minutes. When you climb it during the day, I don't think you'll get lost. In fact, as far as finding the right trail is concerned, I think Talamitam is the easiest mountain to climb for first-timers since the mountain is right in front of you. Just head for the summit. Avoid slitting your own trail. Look for the main trail. There are locals to ask for directions anyway.

sana pangalagaan ntn ng maayos ang mt.Talamitam, nakakalungkot para sa aming mga mountaineers na makita nagkakaganyang ang bundok.

galing kmi dito kahapon lng (June 05, 2011).. mga first time namin dito kaya hindi nmin alam bahay ni sir nick, madadaanan pla un before ng brgy hall.. kay ang ngyari nkapagregister muna kmi sa brgy which 25 pesos each, at 20 pesos daw kung maliligo sa ilog.. sao 45 each ang binayaran nmin..

nakarating na kmi s first footbridge ng my matanungan kmi kng san un bahay ni sir nick kc nga s knya kmi kukuha ng guide.. nadaanan nmin ung brgy hall ulit, at ang sasama ng tingin samin, tinanong p pla ung isang ksama nmin kng san kmi ppunta, eh ang totoo, hindi tlga nya alam..
nkipagkwentuhan pa samin ng konti c sir nick.. joker pla to c sir nick! nung nkuha nya n kmi ng guide, dumating ung isang taga-brgy sa gate nya at nkatingin saming lahat..
pagdating nmin sa brgy, hinarang nya kmi at ang sabi, bat daw kmi pumunta dun, so cnbi nmin n humingi kmi ng guide.. bigla nlng xang na-highblood at pinapapasok pa kmi sa loob at kakausapin daw nila kmi.. to think na kelngan n nmin umakyat.. hindi daw tama ang ginawa nmin dahil ilegal daw ang kay sir nick.. at sila daw ang legal.. at sinabihan pa kming wag na kming babalik ky sir nick, sa knila lng daw.. what's wrong with talking with sir nick.. may mga natutunan p nga kmi sa kanya bago umakyat..

samantalang sa brgy, wala man lng kahit anong advice sa mga mountaineers..

unang una, wala kmi ginawang masama, diba? transparent ang pagkuha nmin ng guide ky sir nick, kmi ang nkipag-usap sa bata kng magkno ang ibibigay nmin s knya.. at gusto nmin tlgang mkilala si sir nick ng personal..

halatang halata ang pgkahighblood ng isang un, sa mga nabasa ko 500 ang guide fee sa knila.. pera nga nmn... 6 kmi umakyat, 300 lng binigay nmin sa bata..

nung nki-cr kmi s brgy, kitang-kita ang sangkatutak na stock nila ng mga pagkain.. huwaw! no comment nlng ako dyan.. buong mag-anak ba talaga nsa brgy nkatira?

at nung makababa na kmi, binalik nila ung tig-20 each nmin kc nga marumi ung ilog nun, hindi mapapaliguan..
sinabihan pa ulit kmi ng maangas na lalake na wag na kming babalik kay sir nick.. ang hindi nya alam nvideohan ko pa ang pagsasalita nya na wag na kming pupunta kay sir nick, dun lng daw s brgy.. tsk. tsk.

xempre, biglang paggalang, ngpaalam pa rin kmi kay sir nick..

dapat hindi nila dinadaan sa ganung pkikipag-usap ang mga mountaineers.. mayayabang cla kc lugar nila yun, pero hindi rin nila alam kng cno ung mga nkakaharap nilang mountaineers..

Tonox said...

Kampingers summit Talamitam last Aug 6. We enjoyed the hike, view, and local biodiversity. No major problem @ reg to summit and return. Cloudy weather provided cool breeze from jump-off to peak (perfect for an open field day hike). Reg fee still at P25. Bathing fee @ P20. What do I expect from the collected reg fees? Trail and basecamp development and maintenance would suffice.

sir gideon, it was posted in your facebook account that you recently visited mt. talamitam i think that was 2 weeks ago...we were there just last week and we were looking for your name in the registration book but we didn't find it there.

i visited mt. talamitam and mt. batulao last sept. 17 and i definitely registered with the barangay in talamitam and in the new trail logbook in mt. batulao. you may have been looking at the logbook with sir nick, who is also our good friend but i was not able to visit him this time around.

note that pinoymountaineer does not take sides in local disputes, preferring that locals settle conflicts among themselves.

dalhin niyo sa denr ang problema sa mt. talamitam especially sa registration at ilog fee issue. bakit kasi nagpupunta pa kayo sa mt. talamitam kitang kita naman ng mata natin na mukhang pera ang mga taga barangay.

isa pa wala silang karapatan na humingi ng registration kung hindi naman sila sakop ng denr / pasu. kapag meron masama na nangyari sa atin sa mt. talamitam puwede kayo itangi ng barangay dahil hindi naman sila kontrolado ng denr / pasu.

kung ako sa inyo wag na kayong umakyat ng mt. talamitam dahil lalo lang lumalaki ang issue doon at isa pa nakita niyo naman ang bundok halos walang paki alam ang mga tao doon lalo na ang barangay. gagawa kayo ng clean up at tree planting pag alis niyo naman tatawanan lang kayo ng mga tao doon.

galing ako ng Mt. Talamitam last September 22 2011...

bago ako umakyat kinontak ko si sir.nick for information.. kasi first time ko aakyat ng mt.talamitam

then kinuha kong guide si sir.chris na taga dun kila sir.nick

when i'm about to register sa barangay.... tinanong ako ng tao dun kung sino yung kasama ko... sabi ko guide ko...

tapos na high blood agad un tao dun... ang sabi ba naman dapat daw sa kanila ako kukuha ng guide... hindi kung saan saan...

tinanong ako kung kilala ko daw chairman nila... sabi ko hindi... tapos sabi ba naman... pag un chairman daw nila ang kausap ko malamang pagagalitan daw ako nun at hindi ako paaakyatin...

pati ba naman pagkuha ng guide pinapakealman nila...

after my descend.. bumalik ako sa baranggay para mag log-out and kunin ang sukli ko na 25php...

ilang sigaw at katok na ginawa ko sa baranggay hall nila ay walang taong nagpakita sakin

dapat di nila iniiwan ang kanilang baranggay na walang tao kung alam nila may taong umakyat nung oras na yun... what if nagkaemergency...

sana talaga maayos na ang aberya na yan sa baranggay.. ganda pa naman ng mt. talamitam

So, the issue between these people over talamitam is still on-going and seems never come to an end...or should I say "un-ending"... I dont mind who's the caretaker, as long as the place/Mt. Talamitam will benefit, nevertheless I will not promote to climb Mt. Talamitam, as the climbing activity seize and so hope their quagmire follows, (just a sign of my own protest). perhaps this could helps settle the issue...anyway there is a nearby Batulao who offers the same satisfaction.....but that's me.

I think its about time for us mountaineers to take action in this long time un-settled upheavals, I do believe we are part of this issue, kasi nag-uugat sa kung sino ba ang totoong caretaker, kanino ba ang reg fees, at sino ang official na magbibigay ng guide, para sa mga mountaineers, Between the two parties involved, we are caught in the cross fire, I say we suggest banning to our fellow mountaineers to climb Mt.Talamitam for a moment, until they will come up with a final solution which be both fair for the parties involve as well to the mountaineers community...kung wala munang aakyat, walang magiging sanhi ng away... so kung ayaw nilang magkaayos...sige solohin na muna nila ang bundok...para maramdaman din nila ang epekto ng bangayan nila...dun na lang muna tayo sa kabilang brgy.

1. To save mother earth (nag-tree planting kame)
2. To experience the true meaning of life. (cause world is a lot different from the up)

*another unforgettable experience..
i save mother earth, then i feel fulfilled..

The 'mary' statue on top is a photographic eyesore. Leave it OUT. If people want a religious experience, then go to church instead.

Anonymous said...

before ka pa siguro pinapanganak meron ng statue ni virgin mary dyan kung eyesore sayo yung dahil pangit sa picture yung statue..mas mabuti na wag ka na umakyat..kayo yung mga basura dyan sa talamitam at hindi yung statue..

Anonymous said...

kung picture lang ang purposes mo sa talamitam at pangit tingnan sa litrato ang virgin mary.wag mo na lang isama sa mga pic mo..hayaan mo na lang..ang tawag dun respeto...
