Mt. Malipunyo/Malarayat

MT. MALIPUNYO (MT. MALARAYAT)
Batangas and Laguna
Entry point: Brgy. Talisay, Lipa
Exit point: Brgy. Atisan, San Pablo City
Elevation: 1005 MASL
Days required / Hours to summit: 1 day / 3-5 hours
Specs: Minor climb, Difficulty 3/9, Trail class 2-3

BACKGROUND
This mountain range, which is also known as Mt. Malarayat, is one of the major features of the Southern Tagalog landscape, which also includes Mt. Makiling, the Mt. Banahaw complex, and Mt. Maculot. It is also sometimes spelled as Malipuño. This mountain is cool, forested, and verdant for the most part, even the summit. Other areas are grassy, like those near Manabu Peak.

Its vastness gives rise to three destinations: the highest peak of Mt. Malipunyo; Mt. Susong-Dalaga; and Manabu Peak. These three are interconnected, although a separate itinerary exists for 2-hr trek to Manabu Peak. The customary trip is a traverse from Brgy. Talisay in Lipa City to Brgy. Atisan in San Pablo City. This trip entails a 3-4 hour climb, passing by woodlands and forested areas. A water source will be encountered an hour up, beyond which some parts would be steep, but with plenty of small trees to hold on to. The 4-5 hour descent north to San Pablo City involves the same trail for the first half; it will then branch off to San Pablo after a grassy area.

Malipunyo actually has three peaks with almost identical elevations, with the summit (Peak 3) rising to 1005 MASL. In April 2008, the summit has been cleared of trees to become a viewdeck. An plaster statue of the crucifix has also been erected. In this viewdeck, and elsewhere in the summit, one can see Mt. Maculot, Taal Lake, Mt. Atimla, Mt. Kalisungan, the Banahaw complex, and Mt. Makiling. The two other peaks -- Susong Dalaga and Manabu Peak -- are also visible.

Don't expect the views to be spectacular, though. Basically, the attraction of Malipunyo is its forests. Though not grand like that of Makiling, it has a rural feel. Fruits such as sintunis (a form of citrus) and sampinit (wild strawberry) grow in the slopes of this mountain. Animals such as wild boar, monkeys, and iguana are also claimed by the locals to be present in the mountain.
and camping at the summit affords cool breezes.

The usual staging-off point is Lipa. This city has become a major commercial center in Region IV; it has three malls and is readily accessible by the STAR Tollway. Buses regularly pass by Lipa on the way to Batangas City and other destinations in Batangas. From Lipa, tricycles can take you to Brgy. Talisay for Mt. Malipunyo (or Brgy. Sta. Cruz, Sto. Tomas) for Manabu Peak.

SPECIAL CONCERNS

Transportation. From Manila, you can take buses going to Lipa or Batangas City (~P100). As much as possible, try to drop off at Fiesta Mall or anywhere near, where tricycles may be paid between P50-80 for a trip to Brgy. Talisay. Tell the tricycle to take you to the barangay outpost.

Logistics. A guide may be arranged at the barangay outpost. Look for the barangay officials, who will ask you to register on a logbook. They will also arrange a guide for you. As of May 2008, P500/day is the fee although it is customary to give an extra. Cellphone signal is present throughout most of the trail.

Technical notes. Noxious plants, including the pruritogenic (itch-causing) lipa trees (for which the city was named) are present in this mountain; it is best to take this in consideration in clothing selection. Trails are interconnected and quite confusing so be vigilant.

Only one water source are available in the above-mentioned itinerary so prepare 3-4 liters from that point. An alternative is to climb the summit by a daytrip. This is possible if you leave Manila by 0500hr. If you are very early and your pace is very fast, you can even do the traverse in one day!

Traverse trails. If a group intends to visit all three peaks of the Malipunyo range in one trip, then a Malipunyo-Manabu traverse is the best choice, plus a Susong Dalaga sidetrip. Although interconnected, the trail to Susong Dalaga branches off from the trail to Malipunyo early on from Brgy. Talisay. Thus, the recommended schedule is an early arrival at Brgy. Talisay on Day 1, and climbing Susong Dalaga early in the morning (1-2 hours up; 3 hours total). And then, after lunch, the group can commence the four-hour climb to Malipunyo summit, camp there, and then descent the next day to Manabu. The exit point would be Brgy. Sta. Cruz in Sto. Tomas. The reason why a Manabu-Malipunyo traverse is less preferred is that the guides at Brgy. Talisay seem to be more familiar with the entire range, and they can take you to all three peaks in two days. Just prepare allowances. If a traverse to San Pablo is desired, then an additional day might be required.

TRIVIA
At least three mountains are called 'Susong-Dalaga'; Jose Rizal called Mt. Tagapo in Talim Island as such; and another similarly-named mountain is found in Rizal. However, the shape of the Susong-Dalaga of Mt. Malipunyo is, in the author's opinion, truer to its name.

Other trails, including one from Tanauan, may also be used but these are more challenging and less-established. There is also a trail to Tiaong, Quezon from the summit.

In the olden days, young men of Brgy. Talisay used to do the traverse to San Pablo for another reason -- and perhaps equally adventurous: they would bring a guitar across the mountain, set off at dusk, and serenade the ladies of Brgy. Atisan in San Pablo! They would return on the same night.

hi..are there guides in malipunyo? or the trail is defined enough to manage without a guide? thanks for the help

gideon said...

yes there are guides. ask for the barangay captain, there's a logbook at the barangay hall. the people there will give you a guide. the trails are quite confusing and i encourage you to take one. have a nice trek!

Philippe said...

thanks for the reply.. is there a parking lot for private vehicles in malipunyo jump off? and how much is the guide fee? thanks.. more power..

gideon said...

i updated the entry, with information that i hope would answer your questions. as for parking, you can park at the jump-off. we did that when we climbed last april.

philippe said...

thanks man.. one last question.. From manila, going to malipunyo is the same as manabu's route right? thanks

gideon said...

yep. but the dropping off point is around 20 kilometers away -- lipa instead of sto. tomas.

Halumigmig said...

Hi,

My group (FMDYDH Outdoor Group - FOG) is bound to Malipunyo this August 25-26, 2008, and this would be our first time to trudge this trail. We might need some confirmations and advise on this mountain though.

1. When we do the traverse trail, can we "actually" get to the three peaks of malipunyo-susong dalga-manabu? or are we just be "passing-by" the other peaks in a distance?

2. If we can go to all three peaks in our 2-day trip, would it be best if our entry point is from manabu to malipunyo or vice-versa?

We really do appreciate any inputs on the subject.

Thanks Gid!

gideon said...

@halumigmig: i'm editing the article to include a response to your question (under special concerns). have a nice trek!

saku said...

hi sir! astig pala sa malarayat ang ganda ng view mula sa peak ng manabu pati sa malipunyo cleared na ung summit nya sayang lang hindi namin na-trek ung susong dalaga kasi kinulang na kami sa oras, ilan beses kami naligaw kaya nadelay sa oras... start po kami ng trek sa manabu then traverse to malipunyo last aug.22-24 ang sarap pala ng lomi sa brgy. talisay!!! hehehe...

payat said...

mga sir magkano po ba pag magpapaguide paakyat sa mlarayta wala kasi samen nakakaalam ng trail nun e

gideon said...

@saku: congratulations on your trek! how long did it take you from manabu peak to malipunyo summit? how was the trail, is it easy enough to manage without a guide?

@payat: its 500/day as of may 2008 when i climbed malipunyo. you can try negotiating.

saku said...

start po kami ng 8:30 bumutas na lang po kami ng trail mula sa manabu hanggang makakita ng malinis na trail.. cguro po mga locals lang ang nadaan dun kasi hindi bugbog yung daan then binaybay namin yung cogon line sa tapat ng susong dalaga ilan beses kami nag backtrack, 6:30 na po namin narating ang summit ng malipunyo kasama na dun ang lunchbreak at pahinga pati na yung pagkaligaw! hehehe...
mas advisable po na kumuha ng guide kasi ang dami pong mga sangang daan na iba't ibang lugar ang babagsakan, nagtatanong na lang kmi nun pag may nakikita na locals kaya namin na-traverse.. pero naglagay naman po kami ng mga trail sign sa mga dinaanan namin from manabu...

gideon said...

thanks saku for this. id like to do a malipunyo-manabu traverse too, soon. more power to your group and good luck in your future climbs!

saku said...

tnx din sir sa pinoy mountaineer kami nakuha ng details pag may climb kami... sana magkita kita tayo!!!

gideon said...

@saku, thanks! hope to see you along the trail in the future/.

Halumigmig said...

Hi Gid,

Our group FMDYDH Outdoor Group (FOG) finally managed to summit this mountain last Aug 26 despite the continuous downpour of rain. It was some sort of exploration since we secured no local guides at all (priced @ 500/day), all we had were information gathered through the net like pinoymountaineer.com and other blogsites. Our entry point is via Talisay where we met Sir Bong, the Brgy. Secretary. The trail was quite easy yet very tricky with its numerous, cascaded forks, we got lost eventually after reaching Vilma's Reforestration Project (there is a green reflectorized metal marker), but we were able to reckon the San Pablo (Manabu) return trail due to this misfortune. After calling Sir Bong on the phone and with obscure instructions at hand, we proceeded to go with our "basta pataas" mountaineer instinct and trudged a thickly-forested barely-visible 40to60-degree ridge trail and at 1630, we reached a clearing with grass forming a flat saddle. The saddle overlooks a nearby unknown town on the southeast. To our south, loomed Malipunyo summit, to our north, an unknown peak. Our energy is quite depleted due to numerous backtracking and reconnaisance attempts and the un-abating rains which made the trails ankle-deep with mud, so to keep our heads straight, we stayed there for the night and took some shots of brandy that we brought.

Before break camp of next day, to our delight, we saw a familiar face, Mang Mokreng (a local guide/forest-watch with a hut where we took lunch the previous day, who gave us directions before we got lost) with his 'apo' and his mangy dog. He then explained that we took the 'old and difficult' trail going up, and that we just missed the established trail just above the reforestration project. He also told us that the town we see below is in fact, Tiaong, Quezon (at least, we get to know the traverse trail to Quezon)! He then pointed us to the right direction towards the summit. Also he said we stayed the night at what locals call "pahinga", aptly named since you will have to rest here before (or after, when going down via Tiaong) you manage the full hour of 50to60-degree assault via the "Matandang Gubat" trail (full of noxious Lipa Trees!) that would reconnect on the left side of the established trail with an hour and a half left to summit.

The trip was quite an experience and is quite enlighthening especially for those exploration junkies like our group. Just a quick note to all those who are planning to climb this mountain range, do not underestimate this mountain. If you're less adventurous at heart, not vent on exploration, and is time constrained on getting to the summit (more like of what our group call as a 'social-climber' hehehe), it is a must that you secure a guide, otherwise, you'll definitely get lost somewhere along its forks and turns. Also, if you go down via Talisay, you can tidy up at Sir Bong's nephew's place, Sir Julius (who is also a Brgy. Kagawad) just in front of the barangay hall, you'll even be offered free Batangas-brewed (barako) coffee!

Regards,
Halumigmig

PS: I'll try to send some pics of the Tiaong trail on a separate e-mail.

@halumigmig:
getting waylaid in malipunyo seems a general experience --same thing happened to me last april; we ended up climbing an obscure mountain called mt. palamigan! we certainly should recommend getting guides for this mouuntain.

serendipitously though, you reached the tiaong trail! i shall await the pictures with great interest.

Mga Sir, our group has organised a climb to Mt. Malipunyo for this weekend. I'm a bit hesitant because of the comments i've been hearing and reading from most of the mountaineers who has gone to Mt. malipunyo. I am not ready to be waylaid this coming weekend as I still have sprained foot and been limping for two weeks now. But hardheaded as I am, I was able to get to one of the nicest destinatiion near Mt. Maculot with a very notorious trail down(as in almost 90 degrees)somehow, I was able to endure the pain and was able to get to our destination and back. I am afraid I might ask for Ecamp which I know would really upset my husband.

One of our group member was able to join a group to Malipunyo and she said that there's no way for us to get lost anymore coz there are trail signs already. Is this so?

another concern, would you know how many tents can the summit accomodate? (approx)??

thanks very much.
Maruco

update lang nakababa na yung mga friends ko, sa brgy. sto.nino daw yung nilabasan nila, thank God.. siguro dapat yung mga tao sa barangay hall i-enforce nila na wag magpaakyat ng mountaineers ng walang guide, sobrang dami daw sangang daan kaya nakakaligaw talaga..

Uno said...

Sir Gid, if I may share our waylain story..

We were supposed to climb Mt.marami but due to a Millitary Cleanup Drive, we were told that it is entirely dangerous to climb. "Pwede kayo umakyat, pero pag nabaril kayo, sorry na lang. Baka mapagkamalan kasi kayong NPA.", was what the jump-off caretaker told us (hence, we really advise you to inquire first at the Magallanes Police Station if climbs are allowed - prolly due to Millitary operations). Stricken and disappointed. We travelled back to Dasmariñas, Cavite. It was late afternoon when we suddenly decided that we won't let this incident waste our prepared things. We got some ideas that we should try climbing Mt. Malipunyo via Talisay Trail (courtesy of this site).

We arrived at Brgy. Talisay at around 1800. Being stubborn and low on budget (fare to Mt. Marami is really costly), we decided on a night trek despite the notion of the locales.. "Naku, imposible ninyo maakyat yan. Tapos ganitong maulan at gabi pa? kahit bayaran ninyo kami ng P1000, hindi kami sasama. Feeling extremists and all adventurous, we pushed on. On the way to jump-off, we met a locale named Manong Sixto. He advised us to refrain climbing until the next day, so we gain clear vision of the trail. Being the idiots we are, we persuaded Manong Sixto to atleast give on some minor tips to reach the summit. He told us to turn left after the stream from the jump-off, for taking a right track will lead us right into Sto.Niño, the nearby barangay. He also chided that we just keep on staying right when on forks. Carrying that advise in hand, we proceeded with the "Sabi sa site, 5 hours daw trek, make it 6 kasi mabagal tayo.." idea and the "Basta PATAAS & Keep right approach".

To make the long story short, it took us 7.5 hours to realize that we are getting lost (started at 1830, stopped around 0200), and that includes a 30 min break. Feeling that we are getting hypothermia (due to a lack of training & the tropical depression brewing in), we decided to make camp at a clear patch of land with atleast 30 degrees steep.

Lesson: Don't take night treks on a totally obscure mountain. Being waylain is out of the question. If you intend to go on without a guide, take a geographical idea of what and where you are in the mountain, the direction to be took, and taking the exploration by daytime is obvious.

Night exploration sucks. Unforgettable moment was when I said this despite the morning haze of clouds, "Pre, summit na to, tama tayo oh! Sabi sa site kita Maculot! Success PRE!" Then after about 20 mins, the clouds unveiled higher peaks. That scene has LOSERS written all over it. :) peace! akyat lang ng akyat! God bless!

gideon said...

uno, that was quite an adventure you had, thanks for sharing it. as they say, experience is the best teacher!

marami talagang ligaw sa mt. malipunyo. last year naligaw din kami; we had the correct jumpoff point but we ended up climbing the wrong mountain! it was so obscure and unremarkable (mt. palamigan) that i didnt even bother to post it in this blog. haha!

keep on climbing!

laboy said...

man tanong ko lang kung pwd wala nang guide sa pag akyat, na bangit kasi sa special concern,

laboy said...

tulong naman.... salamat

edge said...

Hello Laboy,

Yep pede d2 umakyat ng walang Guide, just be ready for the "lost trails".Climb early so that there is enough time for backtrack :)
I remember we climb ds in traverse trail night trek,so fun we just follow our instincts.

hapi climbs!LNT

magtanong tanong lang kayo sa brgy. talisay sa lipa, maituturo nila kayo.

madali lang ang akyat pero medyo madulas pababa.. dapat matindi ang preparation nyo....

kakaakyat lang namin....

@gid: may nasalubong po kami na local hunters at mukhang cloud rat yung dala nila pababa... though hindi ko talaga masabi kung anong klaseng mammal yun... di ko naman makuhaan ng litrato dahil malaki ang dalang itak ni kuya... hehe... hindi sya unggoy... mas mukha syang daga...

ei...confirm ko lang po base sa mga nabasa ko sa blog na to...akyatin na po ba itong bundok na to? mei narinig kase ako sa kasama kong mountaineer dati when we climbed Mt. Manabu...mei tinuro sha na katabing summit na inde akyatin thus binabahayan na po ng mga ahas...eto po ba un or iba pa un??? and assuming na tama ung way na tinahak nyu...maganda na po ba ung trail?? plan po kase namen umakyat next weekend...salamat po!

Kiljaeden said...

Ahh, actually kakaaykat lang namin dun kahapon actually kararating ko lang ng bahay ngaun.. nung nasa jump off kami tapos naghahanap kami ng guide.. ung una naming napagtanungan eh marami nga daw ahas dun.. pero nung umakyat kami wala naman.. (assuming kasi wala naman akong nakita at kung ito nga ung tinutukoy mong peak..may crucifix dun ni jesus christ kaso nakababa na ngaun).. 3 peaks ung napuntahan namin.. di ko lang alam mga names kasi nung tinatanong ko ung guide namin ang sagot niya Malarayat eh..(not sure)

Sa trail:

Yung trail sobrang enjoy! sarap!although may mga super steep na trek pero okei din.. ang sarap kaya ng putik.. kami nag enjoy, kailangan lang talaga ng BMC :D Pero saya ng trail ganda rin ng tanawin..kaya siguradong mageenjoy din kau..

Sa campsite naman..

Remind ko lang po para sa lahat ng mga may gustong umakyat po sa mt. malipunyo/malarayat.. napakaliit lang po ang campsite.. sana kumasya kayo dun pag akyat nio..un lang naman.. pero maganda sya pag small groups kayo.. kasi super liit talaga ng campsite.. un lang po..sana nakatulong po sa inyo!!

boknoyz said...

For a big group like ours (31 climbers), it took six hours to reach the summit. Going down, we got a bit lost after taking the left trail of the fork from the stream. We suspect it is an alternative trail going to the summit, complete with trail marks.

The campsite is very small. Roughly, the flat area can comfortably hold only about 4 tents. The right portion of the campsite (when you emerge from the trail) is sloping. Since we were tired and almost losing daylight, we decided to force around 7 or so more tents, instead of decending prematurely and look for an alternate campsite. Most of the guys slept outside in sleeping bags. Unpleasant to the back but fun during socials. hehe.

By the way, the crucifix marker no longer stands.

Was there for an overnighter last Friday. The trail's beginning to blend into the surrounding greens, our guide had to hack our way up. NEVER EVER CLIMB WITHOUT A GUIDE... The threat of traps built with 12-gauge shotgun casings ARE REAL... Our guide even brought some so he could refill the ones that had been set off...

Guide fee was 800.

Inform Kuya Bong days or even a week before you go there. The summit campsite can only accommodate at most 5 tents.

Don't bother finding the baranggay hall. They'll point you towards Ate Yolly's house anyway.

Baranggay Talisay's water supply runs on an "alternating" schedule... So you could wash up either at Ate Yolly's, or Kuya Bong's, depending on whose house has running water that day.

One of us had a "limatik" crawling down his neck. So limatiks maybe making a presence there as of late...

Different guides seem to take different routes. On our way down, we could hear a large group making the way up, but our paths never crossed. Our guide took us through the trail that passes through a small "batis" (which may be the water source Gideon refers to).

Our guide also did not advice traversing (if you could call it that) to Manabu... Well he couldn't take us there anyway... He told me that they got lost (or couldn't find the way) the last time they attempted to cross to Manabu, even with people from the NAPOCOR Station at the jump off...

Oh yeah... SITIO TALISAY IS NOT THE SAME AS TALISAY, BATANGAS... Rent tricycles beside Fiesta Mall to get to the "right" Talisay...

edge said...

been here also, we did the night traverse side from w/c we passby to the Napocor tower under it and the trail at first was easy,upon nearer to summit the trail was steep & untraced maybe bcoz no one leading the trail.I agree that u can lost here for so many trails whichway is.But all in all it was a memorable climb.

hapi trek!

sir mgandang araw sa inyo. So talagang kinarir na nung mga locals dun ung pamamaril nla ng wildlife? kakapanghinayang.

btw, napakagandang experience tong Malipunyo, mababa lng sya pero my "thrill", bukod sa mdaming ligaw npakasarap pang mg-short dahil sa "dahon ng lipa" hehehe. mgandang training ground dn sya bukod sa Makiling na malapit sa manila for the newbies pra matuto sa mga sangang daan.

the usual route we take is from talisay to Sto. Niño, pwedeng i-dayhike kung gugustuhin. Dati inakyat namin to thrice within a month, unfortunately that was the month kasabay nung race na ginawa dun. ayun, sa tatlong akyat, 3 ibat-ibang trail ung dinaanan namen sa Talisay bago kami nkarating sa water source (malapit sa kubo ni Mang Rey na pinsanin ni Tatay Tino sa manabu hehehe).

gusto ko din ishare experience ko nung maligaw ako sa malipunyo. traverse Talisay-Sto. Niño dayhike plano nmin, nkarating kami agad ng summit ng lunchtime, past 1 pm pababa na kame sa Sto. Niño. Sa hndi ko malmang kadahilanan (sa ulan cguro), eh pgkalampas ko sa "Palamigan" (viewpoint ng Maculot), bigla ko naligaw at pagkatapos ko umakyat ng tower ng Napocor at 2 oras na pghahanap ng trail (na hindi ko na nkita), nkarating ako sa isang private resort sa may Talisay (ulit).. dahil dun d2 na kme sa manila ulit ngkita ng mga kasama ko hehe..

madaming pang kwento sana kya lang kkapgod basahin, so goodluck sa mga gustong maexperience Malipunyo and enjoy the climb. hahanaphanapin nyo to after ilang days palang.

Nga pala sana ung ibang climbers dun iwasan ng magiwan ng basura sa summit or kung kaya nmang ibaba ung mga kalat dun pakisabay nalang, kc nun last climb ko dun andami basura sa summit. may mga bote ng mineral water, lata ng corned beef at sardinas, at kung anu-ano pa. mukhang di kc alam nung ibang climbers ibig sbihin ng LNT o talagang basura lang ugali nla. Sir maramimg salamat sa space...

latrinidadboy said...

Just compeleted a day climb last May 9. Tricyle from fiesta mall to Talisay is 150 php, registration is 10 php, and guide is 800 php. According to our guide (Rey), only 3 persons are authorized by the barangay as guides.

pano narecover? ganito..kumuntak sila sa friend nila sa manila para makontak ang taga talisay..si kuya bong..sa kanya humihingi ng info tungkol sa umakyat....beforehand sinabi na namin na ang guide ay hanggang bundok lang ng talisay ..ganun din ang sinabi namin sa tumawag..kaya sabi namin wala na sa malepunyo ang subject..nandun na sa brgy. atisan..basta ang advice namin bumalik na lang sila at susunduin sa talahiban ...kaso naligaw na rin sila kasi hindi alam ang pabalik...

anong nangyari...kumuntak sa krame ang kaibigan nila ..tumawag sa batangas provincial ang krame ..nataranta ang mga sundalo ng batangas pati general..sumugod sa talisay..nagulat din ang mga tao sa barangay..lalo na ang mga matatandang may bakas pa ng world war II....to be continued..

commercial muna: BURGER ...dahil may mga bisita si kap umorder ng burger para sa mga sundalong gutom na gutom pero hindi agad makain ang burger..kasi busog pa pala si general kaya hinihintay ng mga sundalong gutom na magutom si general para kumain ng burger..para makakuha na sila dahil kailangan mauna pala si general...hanggang tumikim na rin ang genral dahil sa pagpipilit ng naghanda...ayun happy ending kasi nakakin na rin ang lahat..

o tuloy na tayo sa kwento.....5:00 nang madaling araw umakyat ang mga sundalo sa bundok...dahil ang location daw nung 5 ayun sa kanila na ipinasa lang ng friend nila dahil drain ang batt nila ay nasa lugar kung san may isang kubo sa gitna ng niyugan....kung saan wala namang niyugan sa bundok ng malipunyo.. dahil sa tapang at lakas ng katawan ngmga sundalo ..sinuyod nila ang bundok at ang subject ay natagpuan sa brgy. atisan...kaya sa san pablo na lang sila bumaba kasi malapit dun..

masaya ang lahat..mapwera sa isang sundalo na bumalik magisa sa brgy talisay kahit pagod na para lang sabihing nakita na ang bida...

anong aral ng kwento.? kanya kanyang enterpretasyon lang yan..

Salamat sa pagliliwanag Sir...sana di na rin maulit ito..

Hello Guys
Last Nov. 18-19,2009 we climb this mountain and it's a great experience for us. We travel from Dasmarinas, Cavite with 10 companion including me. Were just a freelance mountaineer
from Analog Devices Inc. Gen. Trias, Cavite.
After a not so long trip and a good view from
Taal Lake, we arrive @ Fiesta Mall and a little chicha sa canteen. Alis na ang tropa papunta sa jump off. Sa Sitio Talisay kami nagregister at don na rin kami kumuha ng guide
which become interesting to us. Dahil po ang binigay sa amin na guide ay di naman sa nanghuhusga ay may polio ang binigay sa amin.
At first glance napaisip kami kung kaya ba nito magguide sa amin. But as we go along and know him e ang lakas pala nya at kabisado ng husto ang Mt. Malipunyo since his doing that for 4years na. His name is Mang Reynald Lobo.
Kuya Tatay ang tawag namin sa kanya. Mabait sya at maasikaso sa amin. Libre pa ang kape namin kasi lagi syang nagtitimpla ng kapeng barako sa amin. He knows very much of the trail. Nahirapan lang sya ng konti dahil ang taas na ng mga damo at mga nakaharang sa trail
kaya panay ang tabas nya ng damo para magkaroon
ng trail. daming puno ng nagbagsakan sa trail dala narin siguro ng 2 bagyo na dumaan. madulas ang trail, maputik at ang daming nakaharang ng mga sanga kaya kelangan gumapang ng konti. wala na ang mga patibong kasi ang sabi wala na rin daw mga baboy damo don. sayang
di tuloy namin naexperience ang makakita nga mga baboy damo. at last we sumitted after 6hrs dahil nga po sa bagal namin kasi kelangan pa namin iclear ang nga harang sa trail. Maganda sana kaso sa sobrang kapal ng fog di namin nakita almost ang view, ang tagal ng clearing.
ang sarap ng experience, lalo na ang tinola na walang asin. Ingat lang po at medyo madulas ang trail lalo na madalas umulan.
Tip ko lang po if ever po na umakyat kayo ng Mt. Malipunyo at kukuha kayo ng guide si Kuya Rey na lang hanapin nyo. The best guide sya.

been here last nov. 21-22. So lucky na isinabit ako nina sir nightcreature and sir marion. Medyo malupet ung trail kasi medyo inabot kami ng ulan. Thanks to sir Marion kasi he's the one who guided us. Lots of confusing trails because he himself and sir Karl of Piknikers were victims of those trails (hehehe....).When we reached the summit eh me clearing pa pero it only last for an hour. We experienced strong winds during midnight. Sarap sa taas.... Lalo na nung socials na kasi sir Karl brought with him a liter of Fundador. Ok ang jam namin kasi it was my first time to climb with them. Ang pinakamasaya eh nung pababa na kami kasi napakadulas ng trail. Sa tingin ko nga mas matagal pa ung pagbaba namin kesa pag-akyat. Once again thanks to sir marion, sir nightcreature, and sir Karl.... til next time!

diba my sinabi si sir gid dito regarding sa trail sign at red ang napili para masabi na tama yung daan kasi fresh yun at color of the year pra sa trail sign so it means pede yun iwan para sa iba nating kapatid na susunod na aakyat, kung aalisin yun senseless yung rekomendasyon ni sir gid.

Been in Malipunyo yesterday. We discovered 3 falls. There is no established trail going to the 3rd and highest waterfall so we made our own trail. The trail is like you're wall-climbing... though frustrating at first, it's still rewarding. One of the best climb in Batangas.

Been here and warning lang sa mga nagbabalak magclimb dito, HUWAG KAYONG PALOLOKO KAY BONG!!

Last time my mga friends kami na nauna samin dun for about 3hrs, they paid reg and guide na mukhang reasonable naman BUT the thing is nainform sila na susunod kami, kinuha niya ang number namin at kinulit kami sa text na MANDATORY daw mag-guide, sabi namin hindi namin kaya yung price kaya sabi niya magbayad na lang kami ng 500 pero d na kmi igaguide!para daw sa guide na pinag-antay namin guide na hindi naman namin sinabi antayin kami, pagdating namin sa brgy hall para magparegister, HINDI PALA MANDATORY ANG GUIDE sabi ng bantay doon, nakasunod kami sa friends namin ng walang binabayarang guide. Halata talaga na nanloloko yang BONG na yan!kaya mga sir at Ma'am ingat kyo!sabi din ng mga taga roon....hanggat maari kay Ka Yolly n lng daw kyo makipagusap.

Registration Fee - P10
Guide (Depende) - Obernyt P1K, Hatid P800
Trike to Bus Terminal - P80

Mababait ang mga locals po doon.
Winner ang trail, medyo masukal lang tlga at may mga parteng nakakaligaw tlga.
Di naman kami naligaw sa tulong ng guide.
pagmay nakita kayong forks, mas advisable cgro scout nyo muna para sigurado.

good day sir gid nakaakyat kami ng bagwis peak last nov 20-21 sa tulong ng guide naming si kuya ray highly recommended siya...ang original plan ay 2-3 peaks sidetrip sa susong dalaga pero sa kasawiang palad dahil sa matagal na pag-usad kami di kami nakababa agad at inabot kami ng malakas na ulan.kaya sa paanan na lang ng malipunyo kami nag-camp sobrang bitin.ang moral lesson dapat buo ang loob ng mga kasama.yumao kaming bitin pero bitbit ang pangakong babalik kami sa malipunyo...
maraming salamat sir gid dahil marami kaming nakukuhang impormasyon sa site niyo...sir pwede ba malaman ang elevation ng susong dalaga salamat...sa pag-inspire sa mga baguhan na tulad naming mangangakyat....

Malipuyo dahil pagod at gutom na kami kakaikot d nmin marating ang bundok... napakabuti ni Kuya Rey Lobo at ng kanyang pamilya after long trekking tumuloy kami sa bahay nila at pinaligo .. thank you again to KUYA REY LOBO and FAMILY.. mga Mounteners pag need nyo ng guide look for KUYA REY LOBO mabait at matulungin sha

Thanks from MONKEYNEERS MOUNTENERING CLUB

Good Day mga sirs and mams...
Kakaakyat lang po namin sa Malipunyo last weekend, may 21-22, 2011. Gusto ko lang ishare and at the same time iinquire kung meron ba tyo magagawang paraan dun sa guide fee to malipunyo na 1k...According ke Mang Rey Lobo, 600 daw ang napupunta sa kanya dun and yung 400 deretso na sa bulsa ng barangay, it just felt unfair and para na tayong ginagatasan. E nagbayad na naman tyo ng reg fee.. Ni restrict din daw ng barangay yung ibang nag gaguide na mababa ang singil, d na sila pinapayagan mag guide doon, siguro dahil wala silang kickback. And dun sa nag comment nung February, totoo nga na medyo me pagkabastos siya (rey lobo) sa iba, naikuwento nya nga na me pinapaalis sya sa campsite dahil d nag register sa talisay, feeling nga nya sya lang ang me karapatan duon..so sad na ganun ang trato nya, and as our guide parang gusto ni mr rey lobo na sya ang masusunod sa oras at decision ng team, sa mga me plano umakyat dun at kung sakali matyempo kayo ke ka rey, try nyo na maging seryoso sa pkikipag usap sa kanya, nagiging at home kase sya masyado pag maging kabiruan, d sya makahalata kapag seryoso na usapan joke pa rin sa kanya, we ask serious questions about the trek for safety concerns, pro joke pa rin sa kanya.. a bit frustrated for 1k fee, but thanks to him anyway dahil nakarating naman kame sa dapat. Just hoping we could do something about the guide fees, d yata makatarungan yun. Good Day po and Thanks sa page nato...we could continue on updating status ng ating mga kabundukan...

i'm not a mountaineer pero first time ko sa malipunyo kahapon, pang-apat na bundok na naakyat ko. our group planted about 250+ seedlings sa may bandang tuktok. i didn't have the right trekking gear, as i've said i'm not a mountaineer & used chuck taylor which surprisingly didn't give up on me, kaya lang ilang ulit akong nadulas/napaupo coz some parts of the trail was very slippery & muddy (muddiest mountain i've ever been) buti na lang si mang mukring/mokreng dutifully stayed behind me on our way down. my mt. malipunyo experience was fun fun fun & we didn't get lost. sana yung mga aakyat magtanim din ng seedlings para may kwenta yung pag akyat nila. FYI may nursery ng seedlings malapit sa barangay at dun sila pwede kumuha =)

Anonymous said...

Sad to say but I agree sa mga previous comments bout kay Kuya Rey Lobo. Ganun nga po siya. May pagkabastos din. Yung sya nasusunod sa time. Nang iiwan din. Malayo na siya sa amin dun sa akyat namin. Parang wala rin kaming guide. I respect him kasi matanda na siya at may kapansanan pero sana umaksyon na rin ang barangay. Bigyan na lang siguro sya ng position tulad ng sa kanya na lang paparegister sa barangay para kahit paano may trabaho pa rin sya. Huwag na lang sana syang patuloy na maging guide. Yung ugali kasi nya ay hindi maganda. Sya lang naging guide namin na ganun. Nawala kami sa trail kasi hindi nya makita daw yung daan. Nawala sya kaya nawala rin kami. Yung plano namin na Malipunyo- Manabu traverse, naging Malipunyo traverse (Batangas to Laguna). Ang layo ng narating namin. Napadpad kami sa bangin at puro tinik na trail. Sana maiwasan na ang ganito. Sana mag train sila ng bagong guides. Parang lumalabas pera pera na lang ang usapan sa guideship dito sa Mt. Malipunyo. Sobrang mahal ng guide fee. Sagot din ng mga aakyat ang food, tent at transpo ng guide. Sa mga hindi magandang nangyayari na ito nasisira rin ang reputasyon ng bundok kahit gaano ito kaganda. It's a learning experience for us. Sa mga aakyat sa Malipunyo traverse to Manabu, goodluck guys kung sino matapat sa inyo na guide dahil barangay din magdedesisyon, kung si Kuya Mario o Kuya Rey. God bless..

Malipunyo Traverse, been there last sat-sun lang. Just want to share mga na-experience namin.

1. Best na pumunta is summer. kasi grabe po ang putik. Sobrang dulas. kahit magpaa ka.
2. Buddy system po kasi madaming trail kaya madaling maligaw.
3. Madaming din tinik, so double check yung mga kinakapitan na halaman.

Hope this will help.
Ingat po!

Sobrang hirap po umakyat dito maraming ligaw frustrating yung trail lalo na pag tag-ulan dahil sobrang maputik. At higit sa lahat palpak yung guide namin. So far ito na yung pinaka-worst climb experience ko sa dami ng hassle at pahirap. Although it's part of the climbing experience pero parang mahirap naman na maexperience halos lahat ng hassle in one instance diba? Pero most ng problem kasi namin was caused by the super galing na guide.

So my suggestions are:
1. Climb Schedule. Huwag na po kayo magbalak umakyat dito kung tag-ulan. I-set nyo nalang sa summer. Learn from our experience.
2. Protective clothing dahil sa masukal at maputik ang mga trail. Magsuot ng shoes na hindi ka pahihirapan at iiwan sa trail. Lalo na sa hanggang binti na lalim na putik.
3. Plan ahead. Wag kayo mag-stick sa isang set of itinerary. Gumawa kayo ng Plan A IT at Plan B IT. Lalo na sa mga nagpaplano mag-traverse.
4. GUIDE!!!! Eto kalimutan nyo na lahat ng suggestion ko from item 1 to 3. Pero eto ang wag na wag nyo kalimutan. Lalo na sa mga may balak mag-traverse. Pumili na kayo ng guide na mukhang dependable at kaya kayong tulungan, hindi kayo iiwan sa trail, at higit sa lahat eh hindi kayo ililigaw (kaya nga tinawag na Guide diba?!). As you can see sa mga comments sa taas maraming ligaw dito sa bundok na ito. Alam na namin yun from the start, pero ang nakakainis lang sa guide namin eh hindi nya inaamin sa amin na ligaw na kami kaya hindi kami agad makapagdecide kung susundin pa namin yung IT namin or iaabort na ang climb. Kaya dapat yung kukunin nyong guide eh talagang kabisado ang pasikot sikot ng trail. I have nothing against dun sa guide namin pero para sa akin sya pinaka-worst na naging guide na nakasama namin sa climb. Tulad ng sabi ibang mountaineer na na naguide niya may pagka-bastos nga sya. Hired sya to guide and help mountaineers, pero parang dagdag alagain pa sya ng group namin. Demanding pa at mapili sa pagkain eh wala naman syang masyadong dala maliban sa damit at bolo nya. Hindi ko sure pero bukod sa kapansanan nya parang may psychological problem si manong (siguro napansin din un ng iba). Sana nga bigyan na lang sya ng ibang trabaho ng barangay nila, wag na sana sya hayaang mag-guide ng mga mountaineer dun dahil medyo hassle talaga sa mga magiging kliyente nya. Hindi sa minamaliit ko yung kalagayan nya, dahil may mga nakilala akong tao na may kapansanan din pero mas magaling pa sa mga normal na tao. Pero in his case kasi yung work nya ay hindi bagay sa kanya dahil sa it challenges his physical and mental capability. And beside maraming nakasalalay sa kanyang buhay. Pano nalang kung may naaksidente nung time na inaakyat namin yung bangin dahil ligaw na kami? Pano nya kami matutulungan nun eh sarili na lang nya hirap na sya tulungan diba? Pano nya kami matutulungan magdecide eh parang sa kanya eh mas madalas akala nya eh lagi kami nagbibiro?

So sa mga aakyat ng bundok na ito kung ang magga-guide sa inyo ay si Manong Rey, mas mabuti pa na wag na lang kayo kumuha ng guide, less pa magiging problema nyo.

Sana mabasa nyo ito bago nyo maexperience ang naexperience namin.

Thanks!

nung 13-14 ba kayo umakyat? 11 ba kayo? kasama ko si ma'am oyet. sabi nga ng mga taga-doon ay may nawawalang grupo kasama yung guide. gusto ko sanang marinig yung storya nyo.

@drew
09994106990 yan ang number ni Kuya Mario. Sya ang guide namin. Ayos naman sya. Mabait. Efficient. Concerned talaga sa mountaineers. Kaya lang kami nagbutas ng bundok para magshort cut, pero ayos naman, di kami naligaw. Paki sabi na lang kinakamusta sya ni Kyt, yung pinagbuhat nya ng pack.

to others:
tama si ma'am oyet, buddy buddy system. siguraduhing na nakikita nyo o kaya naririnig nyo yung nasa harap at nasa likod ninyo. iyak talo maliligaw sa malipunyo.

Hi Sir Oyet.. kami po yung naligaw..guide namin si Kuya Rey Lobo.. Ang labo nyang kausap minsan.. Hindi nya sinasabi na naliligaw na kami..:).. But it's ok.. We'll separately climb Mt. Manabu..:).. Ok din climb.. enjoy din kahit mahirap..hehehehe..:)

@ sir vhartugo:
ang singil sa amin 1600 (100/head) kasi 16 kami at masyadong madami. pero sulit naman kasi:
1. naging porter na din sya nung isa naming kasama.
2. tapos nakisuyo kaming magpakuha ng tubig na almost 1 hr ang layo sa E-camp namin.
3. Ginawan din nya kami ng emergency campsite kasi inabot na kami ng dilim.
4. tapos pag alam nyang mahihriapan kami sa trail dahil medyo matarik at maputik, nagbubutas sya ng daan para maging shortcut.

@ mam cory, oo nga masaya kahit mahirap ng dahil sa putik. Ask ko lang po kung saan na kayo nakalabas?

@ sir alpha,

ang layo na din ng nababaan nyo. Buti at ok naman kayo. Kami na puntahan pa namin yung manabu kaso hapon na din. Nagshortcut kami salamat kay Kuya Mario. Buti nga at maliwanag pa kaya may nakita pang view. Sa pagbaba na kami inabutan ng dilim.

Para po dun sa mga aakyat... Kumuha po kayo ng guide kasi madaming daan at possible talagang maligaw. May mga trail sign pong red na ribbons kaso sa sobrang dami, di mo alam kung alin dun ang tama, at yung iba po kasi hindi na pansinin. Suggest ko po si Kuya Mario po ang kunin ninyong guide. Kasi alam nya pasikot-sikot doon. Pagtanong nyo na lang po sa baranggay.

We just got back from Malipunyo. We didnt do a traverse though. Took the Lipa trail.

The trail is very very slippery and some parts seem as if though it has not been visited in quite some time. What's worse is that it's on the steep parts that are very slippery and the plants with thorns can also be found there. The trail can be really confusing so it is highly recommended to get a guide. At first ayaw pa namin kumuha kasi ang mahal ng singil saamin.

Though nakakainis yung isang girl sa may baranagay na nakausap namin. Kung di daw kami kukuha ng guide, wag na maglista sa barangay. Tapos kung may nangyari, hindi nila sagot. --- FIRST TIME KO NARINIG YUN, EVER!

We found a guide doon sa mga bahay along the trail tapos nakiusap nalang kami. Just gave him P600.

Oh and as for the campsite, it's really small. We were barely able to fit 5 tents at camp 3. Sa camp 1, maluwag. But then we didnt realize that until we got to the summit.

Quite honestly, we dont think that this mountain should be rated at 3/9. Perhaps it needs to be reconsidered. IMO.



Budget:
Buendia-Fiesta Mall: 120.50
Tricycle to jump off: 150/trike. 3 persons/trike.
Guide: 600-1000

Hope this helps anyone who intends to climb in the future.

first climb ko dito 6 years ago, naligaw kami, 7PM na. no sign of peak pa din, so emergency camp kami, un pala 15 mins na alng ang summit, biernes santo yun, pagbaba dun kami sa brgy sto nino napadpad, feeling frustrated binalikan ko after a few months, succesful naman, d pa required ang guide nun, but as i heard about these recent climbers, mukhang pera-pera na ang akyatan ngayon,halos lahat na ata ng bundok nagiging ganito ang trend, dapat siguro magkaron na ng uniform Registration at guide fees/rate. hindi yung parang hinoholdap na tayo sa taas maningil, paano natin maipropromote ang local tourism pag ganito? handa naman tayo sa fees, basta fair lang or nakikita din natin ang improvement...kaso parang wala eh, sabayan pa ng pagiging arogante ng ilang locals. nakakadismaya, gusto mong tumakas sa ingay at gulo ng syudad, eh sama ng loob din pala ang makukuha mo sa pag-akyat.

Guides (daylight) cost 800pesos, as per the officer of the day when we went there last 05 February. It is more expensive when you trek at night (1200pesos). Please avoid the guide whose name is Edison. He charges 800pesos but he will not take you to Malipunyo summit, only half of the trail. It is better to get one at the barangay hall.

hiked here last month. a word of caution: wag nyo kukunin yung guide na ang name is rene/rey. he is physically challenged and you may tend to be extra considerate with him given his condition pero hindi maganda services at ugali nya. may tendency din sya magnakaw ng gamit. enjoy the mountains.

Hi, inakyat namin ung Malipunyo na hoping makapagtraverse sa Biak na Bato to Manabu pro di na kinaya kc may injured member kmi... So far best parin ung experience namin kahit Malipunyo lang nasummit namin. Not sure if alam na ng iba sa trail papuntang peak 1 merong water source sa may crevice ng malalaking bato--malamig at manamis-namis ung tubig don, maliban sa Jumpoff at sa tubig sa batuhan pwede rin kayo dumaan sa Tree house ni Kuya Mario libre tubig hehe! Sobrang fun kasama sa Climb si Kuya Mario dami namin natutunan sa kanya :D Thanks sa Blog mo sir Gids :)

Hi Sir, thank you for posting the itinerary for Mt. Malipunyo. I would just like to inquire if jeep services are already available from Fiesta Mall to the jump-off? Also, if you can recommend a certain jeep service, it would be very helpful.

Maraming salamat! :)

Magandang araw kaibigan. maitanong ko lang kung may madadaanan ba o may malapit na falls, sapa o ilog sa paligid ng bundok?
