Mt. Marami (405+)

MT. MARAMI
Maragondon, Cavite

Jump-off point: Brgy. Ramirez, Magallanes, Cavite
LLA: 405 MASL
Days required / Hours to summit: 1-2 days / 4-6 hours
Specs: Minor climb, Difficulty 3/9, Trail class 1-3

BACKGROUND
If Pico de Loro were a blockbuster movie, its sequel would be Mt. Marami, set in the same location and sharing the same characteristics. Matching Pico de Loro's rocky tower are two grand structures, surging up from the slopes: the summit of Mt. Marami, a massive, monumental composite of rocky pillars; and its guardian, the smaller Silyang Bato. The name 'Marami' is of local origin, and is attributed to the 'many rocks' that formed it. Subconsciously, this choice of name is profound, considering the sedimentary nature of the rocks found in Marami. Indeed, in recent geologic past, Mt. Marami below sea level. Silyang Bato, for its part, has a more modern etymology; according to the locals its original name is 'Nagbuo', and was christened with its present name by the earlier mountaineers.

The jump-off point to Mt. Marami is Brgy. Ramirez in Magallanes, Cavite. However, the summit and its environs are under the jurisdiction of Maragondon. It is a 3-hour drive from Manila; passing by the coastal road, onwards to Tanza, then Naic; from Naic a jeepney can take you to Magallanes. Brgy. Ramirez is just 10 minutes away from the town proper. The barangay fits the bill of a classic rural village. At the end of the road, marked with a water tank, is Brgy. Councilor Punongbayan's house. It doubles as the jump-off point. You can arrange for guides here.

The trail begins smoothly; although it poses concerns for both wet and dry seasons. It is severely muddy when wet; whereas sun exposure is notoriously acute when dry. Even so, the views are rewarding. The first landmark is 'Ilog na Kayrayag', a nearby river; next is Bangkaan River, which you have to pass thrice. In both rivers, you have the wade your way -- water is usually knee-deep though with heavy rains, they may swell to forbidding levels. The last river crossing is around 1.5 hr from starting point. A bamboo bridge was in place here, before it was wrecked in April 2007.

The ascent commences after Ilog Bangkaan; and here, there are two variants of the trail. One is the Nuestra Senora dela Paz variant, and the other is the Talahib variant. The former offers frontal views of both monuments (including a close-up of Silyang Bato), and is recommended over the Talahib, even as the latter has a more gradual ascent, and it is the one used by the locals. In both trails, the environment is comprised by woodlands and sections of grasslands.

THE NUESTRA SENORA TRAIL
This trail approaches Marami from the west. Thirty minutes into the Nuestra Senora, you'll encounter a nipa hut, called 'Kapihan' by some. Nearby is the last water source. An hour into the trail is Campsite 1, which offers majestic views of Silyang Bato and Mt. Marami. After one more hour of trekking, the bamboo forest will be reached. After an hour, Campsite 2 appears, in the southern portion of Mataas na Gulod. From here, you will enter another forested part to reach the base of Marami, where a campsite, the one most often used, is located. A ten-minute assault of the summit ensues.

THE TALAHIB TRAIL
This trail approaches Marami from the south. It uses a "saddle peak" - the slopes of Mataas na Gulod peak on the south side - instead of approaching Mt. Marami directly. Hence the ascent is more gradual. Instead of following the river to Nuestra Senora, you go straight, and after 1.5 hours, you'll encounter a nipa hut. Beyond this, you will see the two structures for the first time. The trails from here on are mostly 'talahib' grassland - the talahib can grow very tall and may obscure the trails. You may encounter grazing cows at this point. Then a campsite will be reached after over an hour, just below the 'Mataas na Gulod'. Afterwards, you will approach Mt. Marami via the bamboo forest. The trails here can get very confusing. After the forest, a clear-cut path to Mt. Marami emerges; and just five minutes of bouldering will take you to the summit of Mt. Marami.

At the summit, rocks, patched with unusual mosses, lichens, and ferns, comprise the scene. Winds are strong and weather is cool. Dramatic views ensue, affording a panorama of the Maragondon mountains, including Pico de Loro, Mt. Mariveles, and even Mt. Banahaw. Dramatic rock formations, set in this beautiful background, create an infinite number of photo opportunities.

SPECIAL CONCERNS
Mt. Marami is notorious for its labyrinth of trails, waylaying many hikers. Even guides can get lost, as there are no "professional guides" in Brgy. Ramirez; you just ask locals to act as 'guides' for P200-300/day. It would be best to have some experienced hiker to guide your group as the trails are really confusing.

Wear protective clothing because some of the plants and grasses are irritating to the skin. Also, sun exposure is very strong so be guided accordingly. During the rainy season, the trails are muddy. However, even then the trails are benign. Only standard precautions are needed for most parts. However, Ilog na Kayrayag can swell to a point when it cannot be crossed. This could make you 'stranded' at one side of the river; you would have to wait for level to descend. This happens often during the rainy season; hence PinoyMountaineer recommends Mt. Marami as a summer destination. The views would be much greater then.

Kon. Felicio Punongbayan has an agreement with the municipality of Magallanes; you have to register at the police station first before going to the barangay. You may contact Kon. Punongbayan at +639213627008. Cellphone signal is sporadic, but strong in the summit and campsite areas.

TRIVIA
Wild boar meat is a favorite delicacy of the locals in the vicinity of Mt. Marami; wild boar roam the forests whereas deer have retreated to denser jungles.

Average trek time is 5 hours. Interestingly, the water in the rivers and streams are milky white. However, when the rivers swell, it becomes murky brown. This is also the time when locals would go to the banks and try to catch some fish.

Mataas na Gulod was a more prominent landmark before the "discovery" of Mt. Marami. Its elevation is probably around 300 MASL. Speaking of elevations, the circulating elevation of Mt. Marami at 840 MASL is a gross overestimate. It might probably be referring to feet instead of meters, as 280 MASL would be a valid estimate using satelite data. The 405 MASL used in this IT is from the author's own measurement.

WEATHER OUTLOOK: MAGALLANES, CAVITE



Many thanks to Sir Erick Bautista of OLAY Mountaineers for the pictures and the advice, When the author of this IT climbed Mt. Marami, the views were covered with fog.

Sir, would it be stressful to go on a daytrip in this mountain? I am planning to bring my father who is in his 50s and have just climbed dagulgul and wanted to climb more. Would you recommend this mountain for beginners? =)

gideon said...

sir john, mt. marami is recommended for beginners as an overnight climb -- but as a daytrip it might be quite challenging even for regular hikers unless you arrive very early at the jumpoff. especially if its raining coz it gets muddy.

hi sir... may case po ba ng holdapan sa mt.marami? kasi po kaya kame umiiwas sa south madami case na ganun. hope u could advice us kasi wer planning to go there this week. tnx and more power.

gideon said...

as far as i know, there hasn't been any report of theft or any untoward incident lately.

the mountains of the south are generally safe. true, there have been isolated cases in the past, but i am of the opinion that it shouldn't be reason enough for not climbing. still, however, precautions must be made: don't bring too much cash and expensive gadgets. and always register / get in touch with the locals.

I took the kids up Marami yesterday. The rivers were obligingly benign but the mud was not! FYI- when registering at Ramirez, the chap to find is the friendly and helpful Erwin Bencito (09085678171). He has replaced the contact you have in the text.

Great site. Keep up the good work Gideon.

Hello mga ser. Galing kami dito kanina. 1week hindi umulan dun sa area ng Mt Marami kaya hindi naging maputik ang mga trail para samin. Meron part na nag landslide 100m before sa base campsite ng bundok via talahib trail pero sobrang passable. Naging rocky lang ung daan. Mapapansin nyo lang na gumuho ung part ng lupa pero sobrang safe ang trail.

i'd just like to continue the last post's buko anecdote...me and my fellow climbers enjoyed the buko at ramirez, in fact on our descent had it not been for the kind kuya that came along and managed to open a couple of coconuts for us we probably wouldn't have made it down in time. the buko juice here is the tastiest and sweetest i've ever had. if there was anything that could bring me back to ramirez it wouldn't be mount marami but the buko juice. more power to pinoy mountaineer and Godbless to all you guys!

mga ser magdala kau ng sasakyan, mahirap makabalik ng manila kung after 5pm na kau makakabalik sa barangay ramirez. Pwede kau magpark dun sa baranggay hall. May basketball court dun. Warningan ko na rin kau about dun sa bakahan malapit sa campsite. Merong lalake dun, nagpakilala samin na torres. Sinisingil kame ng benta isa. Nagbayad kami ng 10each dahil wala sya panukli. Bumalik kami sa barangay ramirez at sinabi nila na hindi sya dapat maningil. Napilitan kami magbayad dahil nung hinarang nya kami sa trail, may dala dala pa syang itak. Kau na bahala kung magbabayad kayu or hindi pero suggest ko lang na wag kau magbayad. Baka mamihasa. 20each ba naman!!! Nagbayad ka na sa Ramirez tapos may bayad pa sa kanya.. hay

al from voyager adventure club here. Nagpunta kami dun sa Mt. MArami last weekend (feb 13-14). Guide namin si JR. 500 daw minimum of ten pax so kung mababa sa sampu same pa din. pag sumobra 50 per head. Medyo mahal siya unlike other climbs na napuntahan na namin yung iba porter at guide na yung rate na yun. tapos yung sa may gate sa bakahan yung siguro yung nakita nilang naniningil iniwan na kami dun hanggang dun na lang daw sila talaga. napaka weird ng dahilan na yun. kaya naligaw kami at sinabi pang may water source kaya kampante kami yun pala wala nung may nameet kami sa taas na tiga cavite na estudyante. regarding dun sa naniningil sa taas. Si JR mismo nagsabi dun s a lalaking may itak na singilin sila. kapag di kumukuha ng guide yun yung ginagawa nila. Nung pababa naman kami bago dumating nung gate na kahoy, may usok nung malapit na kami biglang nagliyab yung apoy. may nagkakaingin pala dun. though alam nilang may mga umaakyat dun. kapal nung usok kaya nahirapan kami bumababa humiwalay pa naman kami sa grupo para kumuha ng tubig dahil naubusan kami. habang nababa kami ilang ahas yung sumalubong sa amin dahil sa kainigin na yun. sarado ang baranggay para masabi namin yung nangyari. nung nasa baba na kami yung kulang namin kay JR dahil wala kami barya kinukuha agad sa akin kahit pa kumakain ako. medyo may mga sablay mga nakasalamuha namin. pero maganda ang mt marami. sana wag siyang mababoy kagaya ng pico de loro. ingat na lang sa mga aakyat at sana ay makatulong tong post kong to. thanks.

Nakakaligaw siya kahit may araw. but if you're in for some adventure, then try a night trek. I have no idea how much the guide would charge but for that kind of trek, P200 to P500 would be reasonable depending on your climb size. Over P500 would be overcharging. I'll be climbing there too this weekend. Hope to see you guys there!

Maraming umakyat last weekend (jan 15-16). 80 %, I think, failed to summit! Some groups left Manila at 0500hrs. With our 0800hrs ETD, I thought we would run out of space at the campsite but we were surprised to know that we (me and two of my friends) were the first to summit, well not counting the armed locals (probably rebels) that I met at the summit.
Warning: Climbing Mt Marami is no joke! I guided two friends last December and these friends guided a group last weekend. They got lost...reassembled on Sunday.
Another friend hired a guy at Ramirez. Only one of them summited (taking the challenge of the precarious boulder face). Their guide left them at the campsite at the foot of the boulder.
I think only my group (3pax) took the new trail. Everybody else took the old nuestra trail. Most guides in ramirez don't take the new trail. I think Orangutan mtneers did a successful traverse (old-new trail).
Pag wala kayong guide, ewan ko lang! test your instincts.

Galing kami dito last March 5-6.. night trek na kami kasi dumating kami ng 6pm sa Brgy. Ramirez. Madami din nag-aalok ng guideship dun kahit mga bata.pero may lumapit samin si na driver. at noong una nagalangan kami kasi mukhang hndi naman sya umaakyat sa Marami. pero pumayag nalang kami kasi may tricycle sya papuntang brgy. noong naglalakad kami nakakwentuhan ko yung guide at nalaman ko na dati pala ay nagtatanim sya ng mga mais at gulay na malapit sa campsite. at may dinaanam pa kami na isang kubo na biyenan nya daw at nalaman ko na yung matanda sa kubo ay nanay ng asawa ni chairman sa Ramirez. inalok pa kmi ng maiinit na mani na napakasarap dahil maginaw na sa daan.. mga pasado 7:30 ng gabi yun at yun daw ang pinakagitna ng layo mula sa jumpoff to campsite.ayus naman ang lakad namin dahil malamig.lahat ng kubo ay kakilala ng aming guide at tinuro nya samin ang daan at naglagay na ako ng mga trail sign dahil hatid lang kami. at alam ko na mahhirpan kami paguwi kung di ko yun ginawa. Umabot kami sa tuktok/campsite na malapit na sa bamboo forest mga 8:30pm. isang lakaran na halos walang pahinga.paggisisng sa umaga napakahamog at dmo makita ang summit. noong una sinubukan namin hanapin pero nawalan kami ng pagasa dahil wala rin nakakaalam pati mga katabi namin na camper. noong pabalik na kami sa campsite biglang lumiwanag at nakita namin yung silhouette ng bundok at naexcite kami lalo..naakyat namin ang taas at napakalakas ng hangin. magnda yung view. rewarding sya.ingat lang kasi talagang mtaas ang kababagsakan mo kapag nagkamali ka..malinis ang campsite namin.sana hndi matulad sa ibang bundok. ito yung bundok na masarap balikan. para sa akin. madami mang ligaw ay sulit na akyat. Ingat na lang at maging responsableng backpacker! kapag wala po tayong makuhang guide. maari nyo pong kunin ang guide na naghatid samin..mabait sya at concern sa mga backpacker/bundok. Kuya Manny: 0926-7122198. may motor siya at siya na rin susundo sa inyo pagbaba ng Jeep at pwede kayo makiligo pagbaba kapag madami pila kila chairman.at naghahatid din sya sa pila ng papuntang Naic..Ingat mga kapwa Bundokero!

sa mga aakyat poh magdala po kayo ng maraming tubig..at piliin poh ang kukuning guide.500 lang poh wag po kayo papayag sa mataas pa dun..sa bgy hall poh ginagawang negosyon ng mga tanod ang pag guide mahal maningel ... madami poh kayong makukuha dun wag sila... ingat sa mga nagpaplanong umakyat....

Yep ser Mackoy! I hope you're referring to this number: 09083246967 (Jed Pol). He's a volunteer guide. He doesn't charge any amount. Just cover his necessary expenses. He will actually guide someone tomorrow on a night trek @ Mt Marami. Any feedback on him and the way he guides, send it to 09202522176! He will also soon be doing voluntary guiding in Mt Makiling (Maktrav) in case any of you is interested!

kailangan marami din kayong dalang trail water, sobra layo ng lakad, baka papunta p lang ubos n tubig nyo, ang hirap dinanas nmin nwlan kmi ng tubig, halos d n mklkad tropa s sobra din init ng pnhon (April) di sya k2lad ng iba mountain khit mtindi ang araw, mlmig ang hangin, d2 sobra init kya kailangan ylga ng mrming 2big, sulit nman ang pagod, sobra ganda ng view, parang Pico de Loro din.

d n kailangan ng guide dito kc mlyo p lang tanaw m n ang bundok, marami lang ligaw n daan kc sobra dmi ng farmer s taas n may kanya2 tinataniman, pero pag tumingin p din kyo s bundok mkikita nyo p rin ang way paakyat, at khit anong way ang tahakin nyo, don p din nman ang bagsak nyo, maari lang kyo mplyo, mas mhirap p nga po ang pbaba kc nga s dming way mpplyo k pag nagkamali kyo, mganda dito may ilog pang dadaanan.

sir marlon,

hahahaha!!! busy na kasi ulit sa work pag balik ng manila.. thanks nga pala ulit ng marami sa pag guide samin..

sir\mam

If akyat po kau ng Mt. Marami I highly suggest sir marlon. his a local of Brgy. Ramirez and sigurado kayo na makakarating sa peak. specially sa mga first time mag climb dito. super dami ng daanan dahil sa mga supladong BAKA. di ka nila pansinin talaga. speaking of BAKA. sa lahat ng mga aakyat, paki sara lagi yung gate ng coral na madadaanan, mahirap kasi hanapin pag naka labas sila ng gabi.. more power sa site...

Thanks
