Mt. Daguldul (670+)

MT. DAGULDUL
San Juan, Batangas
Major jump-off: Brgy. Hugom, San Juan
LLA: 13°40.380N 121°19.160E, 672 MASL (+ 672 m)
Days required / Hours to summit: 1-2 days / 5 hours
Specs: Minor climb, Difficulty 3/9, Trail class 1-3

A nice trek in southern Batangas is the coastal mountain of San Juan, Mt. Daguldul. The name 'Daguldul' or 'Daguldol' has been used since olden days. It has an onomatopoeic feeling – that of suspense and grandness. Maybe it describes the grandeur of the range and the abrupt rolling of its slopes.

Actually a small mountain range, Mt. Daguldul has several 'gems' to offer. First, there is the unique seascape that greets the hiker on the intial beach trail. Then, there is trail, moderate in difficulty, passing by woodlands and light forests. In some parts, the greenery is total. Of course there is the peak, which, although not really spectacular in terms of views, has a refreshing feel. Finally, there are excellent sidetrip choices such as the unique Naambon Falls and the acclaimed Laiya beach.

A good thing about Mt. Daguldul is that the guides are organized under the Hugom Environmental Guides Association (HEGA). This means that fees are fixed and they are reasonsable - guides for P400/day and a climbing fee of P30 (as of 2006; update needed). After meeting with the guides or registering, you can start trekking. The trail starts off at the beach - here is where you can see the good rock formations. Afterwards, you will enter the forest. After around 1.5-2 hrs, halfway through the trail, you will see Mang Lizardo's place; in this area are stores offering basic foodstuffs and softdrinks. Buco juice and even fresh, pure honey can be bought here. Another 1.5-2 hrs and you will reach the peak/campsite areas. Long Henson (2001-2002) was the first to report the names of these campsites, namely Campsite 1 (Gulugod-Baboy); Campsite 2 (Niyugan - lots of cocount trees); and Campsite 3 (Anahawan). Usually, the determining factor in camping is the one you reach before nightfall, but these campsites are all within the area which you can explore anyway.

The summit area is windy, as expected from a coastal mountain. Grasslands make for a 'picnic ground' feel; there are some rock formations also. In one viewpoint, called Biliran ng Limatik (20 minutes from Niyugan campsite), the nearby mountains such as Maculot (NW), Malipunyo (NNW), and more distant Mt. Banahaw (NE) can be seen; and also Mindoro (and perhaps Verde Island, SE), Tayabas Bay (SW) and a faint island, Marinduque (SSW). Visible also is Naguiling Peak in the same range - a pristine, promising destination.

On the way back, in between Mang Lizardo's place and the beach, there is a marker that leads to Naambon Falls, just 5 minutes away from the trail. The 25 meters cascade of water falling down a rock face is a must-visit on a trek to Mt. Daguldul. Finally, after the climb, you can unwind in the cool waters of Laiya beach before heading back to Manila.

TRIVIA
Biliran ng Limatik, the viewpoint, should suggest the presence of the blood leech but actually they have long retreated to other, deeper regions of the range.

Mt. Daguldul actually bounds two towns, San Juan and Lobo. The latter is also a mountainous area, with Mt. Lobo being its highest peak (948 MASL). New destinations are bound to emerge from this area.

The UP Mountaineers were the pioneering group that led led to the establishment of Mt. Daguldul as a hiking destination in the 1990s.

An account of the blogger's dayhike up Mt. Daguldol is narrated is Hiking matters #239.

Many thanks to the UP Remondatos, including Dr. Francis Daytec, with whom I first climbed Mt. Daguldul on Oct. 2005. I referred to some websites including a helpful review by Sir Omar jhersey33.multiply.com) and of course Long Henson's IT to fortify this blog entry. Finally, the cover photo courtesy of Ma'am Ivan Manalansan (ivanulrich.multiply.com ) Many thanks!

i've been to daguldul twice. nice post. your hiking guides are very colorful and informative. keep it up.

Anino said...

Bundok + dagat = WOW!
Isa sa mga nagpapasaya sa akin.

gideon said...

thanks for the comments! mt. daguldul is a particularly memorable climb for me. i had fever at the niyugan campsite, inside my tent, while the socials was going on!

Anonymous said...

hi! what do you mean by altitude gain? thanks!

gideon said...

altitude gain is the difference between the elevation at the summit and that of the jump-off. although at times this measurement is of little value, it gives you a more accurate idea of how high the mountain really is, vis-a-vis simply stating its elevation.

hi sir gideon!

i've been to daguldol and made some casual chat with the nearby residents :) the people say "daguldol" means 'thunder' and for some 'lightning' because the old folks say it is the place where 'lightning and thunder dance' and the mountain really showed us what her name means during that climb of ours way back in may (actually 3 of our member's birthday climb) when it was all misty and you can actually see flashes lightning from other places. the misty-foggy effect made the 'lightning show' kewler.

just some bit of info :) part of the reason why i love mountaineering is i enjoy folk stories told about the mountains :) i'm looking forward to collecting more mountain folk stories and probably share them again :)

Anonymous said...

^^^ more to my post above, it was an unexpected rainy climb that's why we saw it. but then, at that time, we were also scared that lightning might strike us as well. :)

gideon said...

'daguldol' = 'thunder/lighting'? wow, this is a great piece of information! its not only plausible, but beautiful! thanks for sharing this :D

Anonymous said...

^^^ yep dun po nakuha yung "daguldol" from the sound of thunder :) sana nga din po di kwentong barbero ng mga tao yun dun. pero mukha naman po seryoso yung matanda (o nag uulyanin hehehe)

fartoots said...

hi po, thanks for the info, :) tanong lang po, about dun sa guides, alam nyo po ba kung may cut-off po yung pag-register? at kailangan po ba na ma-contact sila before dumating dun? thanks po ulit. :)

Anonymous said...

Meron po ba kayong CP# ng Jeep Contact to Mt. Daguldol? At kung meron din pong latest rate ng Guide fee and Park fee.

Meron plan po kasi kami this coming May and I need the cost estimate.

Kindly reply back to ayan_kun at yahoo.com

sir,is it possible to take a bus from kamias going straight to batangas city then take a jeep to bry. hugom? instead of taking a bus to lipa then jeep to bats. city then to bgy. hugom. if it is possible,where exectly in bats. city can we get a jeep to bgy. hugom? less than ten po kasi kami so impractical to charter a jeep. thanks very much

gideon said...

hi guys, im sorry but i cannot supply further information in mt. daguldol because i haven't organized a climb there yet.

i think batangas city can be also used as an access point to san juan, there are jeepneys going to san juan and from san juan there are jeepneys going to brgy. hugom. as for the fares and schedules, i don't know but if you are going there early and if you make allowances in your IT then i think it should be okay/

sir,just came from a day climb on Mt. Daguldol this weekend. just want to share some info. the charge for a guide is P350 for day climb and they issue a receipt,and our guide said that they charge P700 for overnight. they charge P35 for the registration now. we were able to rent a hut for P1000 and we had our car parked there.

gideon said...

thanks for this update! im glad to hear that the authorities are organized and that they are offering reasonable rates. i think this is key to good ecotourism.

please keep us updated in your future climbs!

gideon said...

@jacks: there are no special precautions for daguldol with bad weather, but standard precautions apply. in the event of a thunderstorm, avoid camping in open spaces.

i hope your group will have a fair weather climb this weekend. cheers!

Update as of Sept 20, 2008:
Registration fee is now 35 pesos per person. 350 for the guide fee.

Galing kmi sa Daguldol nung 18-19. maganda yung area, malamig sa campsite, foggy pa nga from dusk till dawn.
suggestion ko eh kung kaya nyo mgstart ng trek ng napakaaga, gawin nyo kasi kung pass 12 noon kau simula from HEGA, napakainit sa beach na dadaanan nyo papuntang jump-off. Sobrang init pati jingle ko na-dehydrate din ata. hehehe. ingat sa mga aakyat ng Daguldol. have fun.

kingpin said...

ei sir and maams,
galing kami sa daguldol just last weekend (march 28-30). maganda naman ang bundok, the problem is madumi sya because of the locals nga and ofcourse mga mountaineers na nagpipilit maging mountaineer. when we arrived sa brgy, nalaman namin na may 40 plus na tao na nasa taas. and when we arrived ang dumi na ng campsite. na occupy nila ung 3 camp sites. ung water source nababoy. nakakadismaya. kami nga naglinis eh nung ibang kalat nila. binaba din namin. and nanakawan pa ako ng gamit (adidas small bag containing my celphone, mp3 player, toothbrush and trailfood). sa baba palang nawala na when we rested after the beach line. di ko na elaborate, nangyari na. let this be a warning to fellow mountaineers. at sigurado ako na di aso kumuha nung gamit. so mga nagbabalak umakyat sa daguldol, magingat ng mabuti. overall, it was a great trip. pagbaba nag beach kami, we stayed in tatay cris' beach front. they were very accomodating. ang babait grabe. di ka tatagain sa gastos. tsaka ung mga nagoofer ng massage, ang sarap grabe. foot reflex for 100 php. tip nalang kayo. kahit na may mga nangyari na di ka aya-aya, it was still a nice climb for our group.

Jeffrey said...

My girlfriend and I are planning to go there this May 1-2(you can contact me at 09182118595 para sa mga gusto sumabay). first time namin pareho umakyat ng bundok but we had camping experiences na when we trained under the BSP. Teachers kami pareho and i heard this is a level 1 in terms of difficulty. OK lang kaya kung kami lang dalawa kasama yung guide papunta dun? kung nagkakawalan kasi ng gamit parang mahirap kung konti lang kami. About sa basura sana part din sa services ng guide na remind yung campers na hwag mag-iwan ng basura. Sabi ko nga sa mga students ko respeto na natin sa kalikasan at sa mga magiging anak natin yung hindi pag-tapon ng basura sa mga lugar na tulad ng dagat at bundok at ilog.

Tikoy said...

Kahit sang bundok, MINSAN mga guide pa ang d marunong sumunod,for 12 years n nagclimb ako, i've met many guides in different mountains, pero NEVER pa kong nakakita ng guide n nagbulsa or nagsinop ng upos ng sigarilyo nya. Halos lahat sila basta naubos ang yosi tapon lang agag kung saan saan. Kaya mahirap din umasa sa mga guide n magremind p sa mga umaakyat n magsinop ng kalat kung cla nga d nila kayang gawin un.

Hapi Climbs! God speed!

meron nag invite sakin this weekend May 9-10, worth 1k (round trip jip from Alabang, beach, dinner, bfast, lunch, n drinks)

Jeffrey said...

WOW> JUst got back. Gusto ko ulit bumalik.. It's raining a bit but its ok since it makes it cooler to climb kahit medyo maputik daan. Kung may aakyat ulit sa inyo dito sa Daguldol or any mountain sa Luzon please can you invite us also?

Jeffrey said...

Just got back! The place was nice even tho a bit rainy. Gusto ko ulit bumalik..

Jeffrey said...

climbing Mt. daguldol we've met several climbers remindingg other climbers not to litter and bring whatever trash we might see going down .. it's a good thing that other climbers take action to address this "basura" thing left by other campers pero sana naman LAHAT (including the locals) are responsible enough make our mountains trash free

Uno said...

...just went there yesterday. Grabe ang putik. Halos hanggang tuhod. Nakasalubong pa namin ang UP Camping Class/Group pag baba. Dami chics eh. Sarap sa peak at grabe ang lamig nung gabi. 3 teams lang kami nandun at solo namin yung isang side. Nagpa-inom pa si Mang Lizardo gamit ang kanyang 'basulito' na umaapaw. Naglabas pa siya ng pulutan. Haha! Babalik ako dito mag-isa! Ayos talaga! Dami rin chics sa beach eh!

UPLB Mountaineers said...

climbed last May 2-3. additional info lang is that HEGA has a maximum capacity per guide, which is 15 people. so if marami kayo, required kayong mag hire ng appropriate number of guides sa kanila.

ganda ng daguldol! moderate lang naman ang putik, unlike dun sa batulao dati.

Anonymous said...

Mga Sir! Question lng po...panu pu ba magluto dun? Kc balak namin magdala nalang ng bigas at maliit na kaldero. Mron po ba dun mapapaglutuan? Plan po namin pumunta ng mga kaibigan ko dis coming may9-10. 4 lang kame at first time climber. Thanks po.

Tikoy said...

Xmpre dapat my dala kayong stove nyo..never cook there using rocks and woods. Better read and understand the LNT principles before u climb.OK??

Anonymous said...

^^ hi there, if you're all first timers i suggest n hanap muna kau ng mga open/invitational climbs na masasamahan pra maorient n din kau sa mga dpat / d dapat sa taas ng bundok.. After that, tsaka na kayo magsolo. Mountaineering is not just a fun spor but risky as well

Joan

Jeffrey said...

From my experience, you need to bring a burner para mkapagluto kayo dun. It's also convenient to bring packed foods but mas maganda if may sarili kayo lutuan. We are planning to get back there again this may 9-10 also(for my birthday). maybe we can pool our resources? j_g_soriano@yahoo.com

anyway u can climb batulao w/o a guide.The trail is very visible. Try New-Old trails sequence.

Hello everyone, Just before the summer is over is there any more open invitation climb in mt. daguldol? Pa-join naman kami. We went there before (only 2 of us + an overnight guide) and we were advised na para makatipid and to also learn more from the trekking experience of others ay makisama na lang kami sa mga ibang mountaineers. Kung meron open invitation kindly hook us up. thanks

hi, my group scaled Mt. daguldol last May 30-31, 2009. The trail offered magnificent views. Yes, there's a store somewhere along the path that sells halo-halo. It rained that night as we camped but we saw a bed of clouds in the morning after the downpour. Mt. Daguldol is really worth all the uphill gruelling climb.

Galing kaming Mt. Dagulgul last weekend P35 parin yung registration fee sa HEGA & P350 parin yung fee sa guide (hanggang summit lang kayo ihahatid ng guide & additional fee na kapag magpapahatid pa kayo pababa) pagdating sa campsite ang daming basura lalo na sa gilid ng kubo (sana malinis yung mga basura dun) ok naman yung water source sa campsite ang problema lang talaga hanggang 3pm lang ang byahe ng jeep mula Brgy. Hugom hanggang San Juan (optional yung tricycle tsaka van or jeep na pwedeng irent kaya lang medyo mahal)

From Buendia Taft pwede kayong sumakay ng bus RRCG diretso ng San Juan Batangas P201 tapos sakay kayo ng jeep pagbaba nyo sa San Juan papuntang Brgy. Hugom P40

Wow. Im planning a climb for month end sa nov. Im so excited to climb mt daguldol especially with sidetrip falls and beach pa. It's really great!
Thanks for this post.

jhe said...

Kakaakyat lng namin ng Mt. Daguldol last Oct 24-25.
Some updates:
- P170 ung bus from Buendia-Lipa
- P35 parin registration
- P350 parin ang guide
- P20 parin ang Halo-halo bago mkarating ng niyogan.. ^_^ masarap pa!

Some Advise:
- Make Sure po pagdating nyo sa Campsite (highest peak) secure nyo lahat ng "pagkain" nyo at mga cookset...kasi meron mga Aso dun...
May mga kasabay kami na, tinangay ng Aso ung mga breakfast food nila...wala tuloy cla pagkain..
Tapos kami namin, tinangay ng Aso ung isa calderong kanin, pati cookset namin tinangay...

So advise po, ilagay sa loob ng tent mga food nyo at secure nyo lahat ng gamit...bago mag lights-off

Meron din ng nagsabi n may nawalan n dati dun ng Cellphone kc nilagay ung CP sa isang plastic ng tinapay, un tinangay ng Aso...

Di ko lng sure kung ung "ASO" na nangunguha ng pagkain at gamit eh, 4-legged or 2-legged lang...

- Meron din po pala water source sa Campsite, bababa lng kayo ng konti, kasi meron bahay dun...

- at siyempre, ung mga basura, dalhin pababa...dont worry kasi pede nyo iwan ung basura dun sa may nagtitinda ng halo-halo...recycle daw nila...

Sidetrip sa beach... PANALO...sobrang linaw ng tubig...
- bring warmer, sobrang init sa beach front, bago makarating ng mountain trail

Enjoy sa Climb!

- sa guide, P350... 1 lng kinuha namin at 12 kami sa grupo...ihahatid ka lang sa campsite(highest point) lapit n summit un, additional pay pag pinag overnight nyo ung guide..(di ko lang alam kung magkano) ngpahatid lng kc kami...kc required ang guide..wala nman ligaw n trail...sa pagbaba lang medyo nkakalito ng konti...KAYA nman...

Sir/mam, We climbed Mt.Dagulul last Jan. 21,2010. Advice lang po sa aakyat. Ingatan po ninyo mga gamit nyo kasi po may gumagalang aso doon. My bag was snapped by this hungry animal just to get some of our food for our breakfast. Dont leave your bags outside your tent when lights out. Just hang it on a tree yung mga necessary meals to be prepared hence. Our climb was successful and a very spectacular view at the campsite. We'll gonna miss the buko juice! A must climb mountain I can say. More power to all mountaineers!!!

-drew "PENDONGERS"

Anonymous said...

we climbed Mt. Daguldul yesterday as a very long daytrip. On the way down we saw some people on the way up which our guide said were members of the UP Mountaineers. The buco juice being offered was superb and it is one of the best climbs I've had! I also met Mang Lizardo. Kuya Lucio, our guide also pointed us to some water sources when we started running out of water on the way down. a must climb for everyone!

@drew
nameet namin yung aso sa taas kahapon. apparently he belongs to the people who sell buco juice near the summit. the dog apparently like buco too.

our group climbed daguldol this weekend (jan 30-31, 2010). trail was generally dry with some soft earth near the campsites. weather was very cold with heavy fog until morning.

transpo fares:
a/c bus from buendia to lipa: P124
jeepney from lipa to san juan: P53
jeepney from san juan to brgy hugom: P40
guide fee:
P350 for every 15 pax, plus P35 registration per pax.

hope this helps others who are planning to climb daguldol.

i'm thinking of going here (or any suggestion for a newbie) this weekend, mukhang maganda ang mga feedbacks, especially the ''aso'' hehehe..

bangkito said...

kung newbie ka talaga sa pag akyat, i estimate mo sya for 5 to 6 hours, dahil mahaba habang lakaran sya, some says mt. daguldol is for beginners, but i guess it is not, it's a combination of long trekking and assault, so you need to prepare your self both mentally and physically. Jogging will help you to increase your indurance. ingat sa lahat ng aakyat. yung aso dapat lasunin na dami ng nag rereklamo dun... hehehe

magandang araw. plan po namin mag night trek dito. pano po un mga guides sa barangay parin ba po?

Anonymous said...

We climbed Mt. Daguldol last Feb.6-7, 2010. Medyo nakakadismaya lang kasi maraming basura sa camp site(malapit sa water source) at sa trail. Meron din sa trail papuntang Naambon Falls. Sana po sa mga aayat, LNT po. Magdala na rin po tayo ng extra plastic bags para maibaba pa yung ibang basura dun. Sa mga magko-conduct po ng clean-up drive, good luck po. Sana po maibaba lahat ng basura dun. Sana makita din ng mga locals yung mga basura na yun at nang malinis na rin. Pakiusap po, wag na nating dagdagan ang mga basura sa campsite at sa trail. Salamat po.. Ingat po..

Maganda po yung bundok at yung view. Sana po mapangalagaan natin.

Sa mga nagbabalak pong umakyat lalo ngayong mainit ang panahon, prepare po tayo ng maraming tubig. Mahaba-haba din po yung lakaran from registration office (HEGA) to jump-off. Regarding po sa aso, marami pong umaali-aligid dun. Ingat din po tayo.

Sana po makatulong ito:
Bus fare (RRCG): Buendia to San Juan(palengke)= Php 188
San Juan (palengke) to Brgy. Hugom= Php 40
Every hour po umaalis yung jeep. Hanggang 1pm lang po biyahe.
Guide fee= Php 350
Registration Fee= Php35/each
Ligo (after maligo sa beach)= Php40/each

masarap po halo halo nila at very accommodating ang mga locals. One of the best places kung saan ang mga locals ay napakabait.

Enjoy po..

Mag-hike po kami this april. Akyat muna kami sa bundok then kinabukasan, magbeach naman kmi dito. Ask ko lang po sana if pwede po ba kami magpitch ng tent sa beach kahit hindi na kami mag rent ng cottages sa mga resort or bawal po? kung sakali naman po na may bayad, magkano po kaya?

mga sir at maam... kakagalinh lng nmen s Mt. Daguldol last April 1-2 msya mdme umakyat.. cool ung mga ibang group but not familiar sa name ng ibang groups.. thanks s trailblazer group p post po ng group pictures ntn s facebook.. but.. malaking babala s iba meron kmeng nkasbay n group "LUPOTS" daw ung group nla of Alfonso, Cavite. We encounter problems to that group.. first dumating sila s campsite nung gbe around 9-10PM our group was about to had our lights off some of us were already asleep tapos hnde man lng sila ngpasingtabe n mgpipitch sila ng tent s tabi ng group nmen.. tinanggal nla ung tali ng tent nmen n nkapitch msama p nun nung nkta nla kme lumabas ng tent hnde man lng bumati kaya npilitan kme ilipat ung isang tent dun s maliit n space mlapit s group nmen.. which is we gave way pra maging panatag ung mga LUPOTS s pgttayuan nla ng tent.. ANG MASAMA nun pngbintangan ung group nmen n kumuha ng t-shirt ng isa nla ksama since gbe un at pgod ang groud nmen hnde nlng nmen pnansin that night... pero hnde kme nkatulog s knla dhl never sila ng lights off sana unteng respeto nlng smen dhl sila ung bagong dating.. friday morning ngiingay n sila at puro parinig about sa nwawala nlang t-shirt n akala mu LACTOSE or NIKE group t-shirt lng pla nla.. kung matino silang bundukero sna inapproach nila ung group nmen ng maayos kung my nkta kme n hnhanap nla which is hnde nila gnwa.. instead they used foul insulting words pointing to our group... that moring we had picture takings before we descend with other group naming the trailblazer while having that those LUPOTS were shouting like nuts about that shirt that time one of our invite SIR JOJO member of MFED approached them.. lumapit sya sa knila at tinanong kung anu problema nla at naghahanap sila ng away at ngbibintang... ang sgot smen nung isa sa kanila hnde dw sila nghahanap ng away nagbbenta lng ng away.. so be aware of that LUPOTS GROUP wala po silang ethics at respect s ibang bundukero.

Aside that mganda ung Daguldol.. pti ung beach pero crowded dhl bakasyon kasi.. :)

1. ano po ang best way to and from Daguldol? Magkano po ang fare?
2. Magkano po ang beach?
3. Any water source sa trail / campsite?

Appreciate all your help.

Thanks,

Galing po kami sa Daguldol last Sat. At ang masasabi ko dito ay di sya ganoon kadaling akyatin dahil sa pinaghalong trek sa beach.

Mga sir/mam, sana naman po ugaliin nating ang magbaba ng mga kalat. Ang daming bote ng alak ang iniwan dun sa taas. Di namin kinayang ibaba lahat. Sana naman disiplina na lng po

galing kmi daguldol last friday apr. 9, panalo pa rin. mganda ung trail ska ung beach. ok sa camp kse khit el nino e mlamig sa taas.ok din mga locals. bumalik nga kmi sat.apr. 17 pero beach lng naman punta namin.

NOTE: kung mag beach kayo after the climb highly recommended ko yung kina tatay CRIS SULIT. pangalan nung resort nila NAAMBON MOUNTAINEERS AND PICKNICKERS RESORT ok kase and very much welcome yung mga mountaineers tapos napaka mura. tapos pag hapon pag kati nung dagat sarap mag snorkeling dami pa live corals and magagandang fish sa bahura sa front beach.nga pala kung dito nyo maisip mag camp after the climb paki linis din mga kalat natin kase matatanda na sila and wala sila katulong taga linis yun na lang tulong natin sa mga kaibigan natin don. napakababait nila mga sir and mam. see you ulet next time doon.

CONTACT NO. TATAY CRIS
0921-9714743

PSCAM.REI said...

just to update everybody planning to scale daguldol regarding the fare;

BUS VIA RRCG BUENDIA GOIN SANJUAN BATANGAS- 188PHP
JEEP SANJUAN TO HUGOM- 40PHP
HEGA REGISTRATION- 35PHP
GUIDE FEE- 350PHP

NOTE: theres an option of renting a jeep if you want to start your trek directly to biga foot of daguldol kase medyo malayo yung jump off and nakakapagod maglakad sa buhanin ng beach... lalo na pag high noon kayo dadating... ask the guide.

Anonymous said...

may contact number po ba kayo ng mga guides sa Mt. Daguldol?

pls do txt me: 09064982757.
salamatpo.

sir edge,

some people are not as lucky as you are in common sense.so, be a bit patient and take it easy with those "challenged" ones ..and be courteous if you can't be nice.the nice answer could be-"sir/mam pkbasa nalang po yung mga naunang entries".

the same thing could be asked of you -san ka patungo niyan sir edge?-INGAT KA.

umakyat kami last april 17-18, tama di masyado madali trail, pero sulit sa taas, sarap pa sana magstay sa taas pero un jeep kasi pabalik ng lipa may oras parang up to 12 nn lang kya nag mamadali din kami, mahal naman masyado pag magrent ng jeep eh small group lang, buti na lang may nakasabay din kami kaya nakapagstay kamis naambon piknikers and mountaineers beach resort,sana magkaroon ng regular na biyahe from hugom to lipa para mas mag enjoy hikers, para mas sulit lalo na sa mga small group

Anonymous said...

update lang po sa bus going to san juan, 4 am, 6 am, then 8am un bus... on time sila umalis, sayang kasi pag naiwan ng 4 am trip, maaraw na ung 6 am trip, sa mga aakyat, good luck at ingat, mas advisable na sandals suotin kasi dadaan talaga kayo sa beach front as in...

pumunta kame dito nung saturday, 15th of April, meeting place sa RRCG LRT Buendia, ang biahe nila ron is 0600 at 0800 lang daw everyday, P188 ang pamasahe hangang sa San Juan, ang baba eh sa petron mismo ng San Juan. Tinanghali kame ng dating sa San Juan kase may Sunog sa SLEX malapit sa Alabang, tapos super traffic sa turbina kaya nakarating kames sa San Juan ng mga 1030 nagtanong muna sa sakayan ng jeep kung hangang 1200 lang ang byahe nila papuntang Hugom, hangang 1700 daw ang byahe nila don. so kumain muna kame ng lunch then bili ng kung anong kelangan sa palengke, then byahe na papuntang Hugom, P40 ang pamasahe sa Jeep, pag dating sa Hugom siningil kame ng P35 registration fee tapos may mga nakatambay ng guide don, P350 ung guide fee, may nag alok ng porter P300 daw, nag isip ako, sabi sa site na to may pagka Mt. hagulgol daw to tapos tanghaling tapat tirik ang araw so kumuha ako ng porter at ung isang kasama ko kumuha rin...di me nagsisi kasi di naman me physicaly fit. May lumapit samin na nag alok ng jeep papuntang jump off. ang singil eh P100 per person, anim kame, tirik ang araw so kinuha namin ung jeep. Pag dating sa jump off ung guide namin eh si Mang lizardo, sya narin ung nag porter kaya doble kita sya...ung last na bahay na madadaanan eh may water source, ung sa anahawan sa camping site, wala nang tulo ung watersource don, inangal ko yon kay mang Lizardo ang sabi sakin eh may ibang gumagawa daw non, kaya ung ibang basyo namin eh pinaigiban na lang nya sa inaanak nya na nag porter din samin, tapos pag baba namin nakausap ko ung sa may kubo na meron watersource, para daw sa mga mountaineer ung tubig nila, di ko lang natanong kung kasama yon sa binabayaran natin na P35, kung kasama yon, sana sa mga susunod na mga aakyat eh kulitin ung mga guide na makabitan ng tubig ung hose don...laking ginhawa din kung medyo magaan ang pack mo paakyat... 2am may kumakaluskos, pag bukas ng tent nung kasama ko nakita nya ung itim na aso binugaw nya, buti walang nawala...hope this help
