Mt. Manalmon (196+)

MT. MANALMON
San Miguel, Bulacan
Major jump-off: Sitio Madlum, Brgy. Sibul, San Miguel
LLA: 15°15.11'N; 121°1.22' E; 196 MASL
Days required / Hours to summit: Half-day / 1 hour
Specs: Minor climb, Difficulty 2/9, Trail class 1-2

BACKGROUND
Part of the historical Biak-na-Bato National Park is an outdoor destination called Mt. Manalmon, in San Miguel, Bulacan. Although merely a hill, strictly speaking, Mt. Manalmon possesses novel landscapes, including those of Madlum River, whose rock formations compensate for an otherwise unremarkable environ. Also, nearby sites such as the Bayukbok Caves (a 2-hr exploration from the River) and Madlum cave (historical due to an 18th century relic) can be coupled with a trip to Mt. Manalmon to maximize the Biak-na-Bato experience. Also, complementing Mt. Manalmon is another elevated ground called Mt. Gola; instead of turning right at the bifurcation, going left would lead to this peak, which is also a good vantage point.

Reaching Manalmon is commenced by taking a bus to Cabanatuan, and then alighting at Brgy. Kamias, San Miguel, Bulacan. From here, a tricycle ride can take you to the jump-off at Brgy. Madlum. From here, the entire trek only lasts for 2 hours. You will first pass through the Madlum cave (also called Manalmon cave); and then the rest of the trail would be passing through / crossing the Madlum River; this is the higlight of the trek. Camping may be done either after the river, or within the summit area. At the peak of Mt. Manalmon, you can see the Sierra Madre range to the east; and Mt. Arayat to the north. Still, it will be the rocky formations, the river, and the caves that will make Manalmon a memorable adventure.

TRIVIA
Scenes from GMA-7's "Mulawin" were filmed in the trails of Mt. Manalmon, including the caves.

Revolutionaries such as Emilio Aguinaldo took refuge in the caves of Biak-na-Bato to hide from the Spaniards. He even made it his headquarters in 1897; the intricate system of caverns faciliated his safety. It is estimated that there are over 100 caves in the area.

In recognition of its rich history, then Pres. Manuel Quezon declared Biak-na-Bato a National Park in 1937.

hi jheny, the general information on public transportation is mentioned in the article. the guide fee is likewise mentioned in the article.

kindly review the posts first before posting questions to avoid redundancy. i place priority in responding to questions that contribute new knowledge for everyone.

good luck in your mt. manalmon climb!

concern citizen said...

hi guys, ok mag caving sa manalmon masaya.. kasi kung mag sa summit ka lang parang bitin kasi madali lang talaga. kaya lang dun sa kabilang bundok may activity ng pagwawasak ng kalikasan. binubuhusan nila ng chemical na sumasabog yun mga bato para makuha nila at ibenta. magugulat ka nga kala mo kumidlat yun pala pinasabog. tapos yun chemical nun napupunta sa water source papunta ng madlum kaya delikado sila. napatunayan ng mga geologist na dun galing tubig nag salt test sila dun sa taas ng nasabing bundok tapos umalat yun tubig ng taga madlum. napakalakas ng tubig dun sa nasabing bundok na tanaw sa summit ng manalmon. kaya nya tumalsik from the bukal ng 20 metres. bukud dun ingat sa pagkuha ng tubig sa ilog dahil dun naglalaba/ ligo, hugas pinggan yun mga local. naghahalo yun mga detergent soap nila at dishwashing liquid na isang patak kaya ang sangkatutak. ang trycycle bayad is 150 lang wag nyo hayaan na 200 singilin sa inyo. magpasundo din kayo sa oras na alam nyo makakababa na kayo. isang oras yata byahe ng trycycle. gudluck mga sir at mam.

sir gid..
gud day!!!
been to manalmon a couple of wiks ago..
nk-kwentuhan ko po un isang local dun and asked him bout mt. manalmon and here are some of the info's i've gathered from him..
mt. manalmon came from the word "manglalamon",
mt. gola on the other hand came from "parola",
and lastly, the madlum cave derived it's name from "madulum", and also,,sabi ni manong, dun daw po nkita at kinuha ang original na poon n san miguel, na ngyon ay nsa simbahan ng San Miguel, Bulacan..

little facts about mt. manalmon lan po..

Mabuhay ang mga taga San muguel Bulacan, MABUHAAAAYYYY!!!!!! TAga san miguel po kc ako... Tama po ang sabi ni anonymous, yun pong imahe ng poon na nasa parokya namin ngayon ay nakuha sa loob ng MADLUM CAVE... Sana po mapasyalan nyo din ang biak na bato, mas madami po cave d2, na pwede nyo pasukin, d2 po yung cave na pinagkutaan ni emilio aguinaldo nung time ng kastila. may bat cave na talaga namang ang daming bat, may mga rock formation sa loob ng cave at mga hanging bridge. Sana po mapasyalan nyo din. MABUHAY ANG SAN MIGUEL BULACAN.

i was here last March 30 to April 3, 2009 and the hike was really good, ung lugar sa manalmon na tawagin nilang duplas tlgang nakaka challenge imagine walling on the clif tapos may tubig sa baba na may mga underwater caves aheh, pero hindi lang ung summit maganda dito ung mga caves na nakapalibot d2 Victoria, Bayukbok, madlum, pebbles, the local guides here are very accomodating din, nakakatuwa na isipin dito ako talaga naka enconter ng mga wildlife, naka encounter nga ako d2 ng wild boar aheheh, monkeys, quails, deers, nido, etc Salamat pala sa mga local guides namin sina Sir Carlito, at ang mga Pinsan ni Felix Donceras na sina dondie at Ian, at salamat din sa mainit nyong pag tanggap sa amin

Anonymous said...

taga bulacan po ako at member ng isang MC dito. maganda po talaga sa manalmon kaso hindi na po tama ang mga patakaran na pinaiiral ng mga taga roon kaya hindi na ko po personally ini-endorse ang nasabing burol. una po sa halaga ng guide fee nila, namamahalan po kami, gayong hindi naman po tknikal ang pag akyat dito burol lamang po ito, gayon din po ang naging komento ng ilang mga taga Cavite na naksabay namin umakyat. ika nga eh pang turista ang presyo at hindi pang mountaineer. madumi pa po ang lugar, mga taga ibang lugar pa po ang nag ki-clean up campaign para luminis ang lugar. at kami ng isa sa mga grupo na nag-establish para makilala ang lugar nila sa mountaineering community eh niri-require pa nilang mag-hire ng guide, sa kabila pa po ng well establish at alam na po ng grupo namin ang trail dito. Well its not a bad tune up for a beginner and simple thrill and adventure seeker. Pero meron po po na mas maganda at masarap akyatin sa area na yan kung gusto nyo. ipagtanong nyo lang po ang Luwakan or Sitio Calumpit, sa peak po nun ay tanaw na ang Aurora, Nueva Ecija at halos ang buong Central Luzon. The usual overnight-two day climb lang po ito. "Keep hitting the trai!!!"

ANg ganda ganda sa madlum.

2. Tyrolian Traverse sabay jump sa may gitna
3. Swim sa Madlum river
4. Mountain climbing (mt. manalmon)
5. Camping (summit)
6. Swim kame sa Madlum river
7. Spelunking (Mt. Pebbles)
8. Visit and swim at Falls

ang saya

share ko lang, ang aming near death experience, habang naglalangoy kami (4 kami) sa Madlum river, biglang may anong kuryente ang naramdaman ng aming dibdib tapos gumapang yung kuryente sabay may isang malakas na tila pagsabog. KUMIDLAT! buti na lang talaga hindi sa tubig malapit sa amin yung kidlat. kundi...takte hehehe

Thanks sa mga nakasama ko, UE JFINEX team : Wilson, Ilyn Joy, Maricon at AugMark. Tapos sa mga Musketeer : Gino and Mon(kulet)..

MAY COMMENT LANG AKO SA NAGSULAT NITO

"Anonymous said...
taga bulacan po ako at member ng isang MC dito"

Isipin po natin lagi pag pupunta tayo sa isang lugar e ung word na "pakikisama" importante po yan Walang Attorney o Pulitiko o CPA sa Bundok

Isa pa, Hindi po porke Complete and Equipments natin and Traning e d na tayo magsasama ng Local Guide Dahil Sila ang mas nakakalam ng lugar higit sa Lahat at mga taong kokontakin pag may Emergency at sa mga lugar na "MASYADONG MAPANGANIB" saka doon sa lugar na "BAWAL NANG UMUWI pag may nakahuli sayo"

-totoo yan may mga NPA doon baka kala mo

E yung mga Scout Ranger nga sa Camp Tecson Pagkalapit lapit sa Camp nila e d basta basta pumapasok, "KAYO PA"

Bukod pa doon ay Sila ang Maapektuhan ng Malaki pag may nadisgrasya sa "TERITORYO NILA"
Magiging Masama ang Tingin ng Ibang Turista sa Lugar nila, Bukod pa doon sila ang "MANANAGOT SA SITIO NILA" at "SILA RIN ANG MAAPEKTUHAN"

Alam mo ba kung bakit madumi na ang madlum, Kasi dahil sa mga "BYPASSER" na hindi dumaan sa mga local guide pag umaakyat.

Brad Siguro bunduk-bundukan lang ang naakyat nyo try nyo sa pulag or sa iba baka mamulube kayo

Kung Mountaineer kayo dapat alam nyo yan

Isa Din akong Mountaineer, matagal na, kaya ko nasasabi ito, i been there several times, Hi nga pala sa "CONGRESSIONAL MOUNTAINEERS" na nakasabay namin sa madlum, ang "Gagalang" nila sobra, saka alam nila ung word na "Pakikisama"

Tenchu!

Hi,
Thanks for posting contact numbers of the guides here. They are very helpful.
SPiMC is planning on going to Manalmon again to distribute Holiday food packages on the 19th.
Due to a very tight work schedule, we are unable to do an occular and Brgy visit so the numbers provided here are very helpful.
Thank you very much!

Hi, Gideon,
Your site is very helpful.
Keep up the good work.
I know you are very busy with your studies and we, SPiMC, are very grateful that you devote time to enriching the mountianeering scene in the Philippines.
Keep it up!

mga sir/mam

gusto ko lang magtanong kung ang madlum river dito sa manalmon eh may tubig pa?.. alam ko po na nakakaloko ang tanong ko, pero kaya ko lang naitanong eh may pinuntahan ako sa subic, olonggapo at may tatawirin dun na 43+ meters ang lapad na ilog at gulat na gulat po ako ng makita kong ang ilog na ito ay tuyong tuyo ni konting tubig wala, kaya naman kung may nagpunta dito sa Mt. Manalmon nitong mga nakaraang linggo at nakita ang madlum river kung mave-verify niyo lang kung may tubig ang ilog..

maraming salamat sa inyong lahat,

ganda pala talaga dito sa mt. manalmon. ganun pa rin po rates (as per Feb. 11, 2011 comment). Just a few notes lang, mainit ngaun so medyo natuyo ung "stone bridge" kung tawagin, walang tubig ung river crossing sana (tsk malas namen). Malalim din po ang tubig dito lalo na dun sa swimming area between Gola and Manalmon. Pag pupunta ng cave be sure may dalang headlamp/flash lights dahil di sila nag-poprovide para sa mga visitors. Atsaka sa trike, wag kau papataga P200/trike kasya 4 persons. Oo nga pala, videoke for P5 meron din dun hehehe. Ingat po sa mga bibisita at enjoy!!!

Napakagandang mag-hike sa san. miguel/dona remedios trinidad area of bulacan. May mga trail na nagawa ang mga carabao loggers way back at hanggang ngayon ay nagagamit pa rin siya. Marami ring mga komunidad sa gawing itaas at may daan pababa ng nueva ecija (papuntang chico river)

sana ay makaakyat ulit ako dito.

Rodjay said...

Just got home from our latest climb. I highly recommend Mt. Manalmon. It's one of those highly relaxing climbs. Where else can you experience cave exploration, river crossing and swimming, rock climbing, trekking, camping, zip line, monkey bridge, rafting, and a spectacular 360 degree view of the surrounding mountain ranges from the summit. Mauulit yun! =)

si mang carding ayos na guide! pag punta nyo sa registration point, sa may tindahan, asawa nya ung tindera. you can ask her or directly look for Mang Carding in the registration area. Anyway, lahat naman ng guide ayos pero Mang Carding is the bomb! :P

I also don't plan to revisit Mt. Manalmon again, despite its proximity to my in-laws' place in Bulacan. I blogged about it, and this is the excerpt:

"It is quite saddening to learn that the place had also resorted to commercialism at unreasonable rates. First there is the Php 20 road access fee through a rough road that leads to Sitio Madlum. Second is the new Php 50 parking fee on unpaved road, which is as expensive as the malls' flat parking fees on weekends. Third is the Php 5 fare/pax on the bamboo raft which used to be free for everyone's use. Fourth is the Php 50 rental of the disgusting bench and table above.

With such fees that I find exorbitant on the quality of hardwares they offer, they will alienate mountaineers on their area. I don't think I will go back to their place again."

If you want to read our full experience and the photo of table and bench for rent, copy-paste the link below on your browser:

Thanks PinoyMountaineer.com for this very useful blogpost.

Galing na po kami nitong Feb 9, 2014. At may mga naka-set pa akong climb. Btw, I'm a tour guide in North Luzon, mukang paulit-ulit akong magdadala ng guests ko dito. Ang totoo nyan, itong March, 3 sundays na ang naka-sched ko para sa open-group tour. Sa mga gustong magjoin, na ayaw ng hassle, sa konting halaga, txt me po. May sundo kami from QC...
