Mt. Banahaw de Lucban (1,875+)

MT. BANAHAW DE LUCBAN
Lucban, Quezon
Major Jump-off: Brgy. Ayuti, Lucban, Quezon
LLA: 14°04'N 121°30'E 1875 MASL
Days required / Hours to summit: 2 days, 5-6 hours
Specs: Major climb, Difficulty 5/9, Trail class 3

BACKGROUND
Mt. Banahaw de Lucban is one mountain where the challenge does not lie in the steepness or length of the trails, but in the flora and fauna thereof. Its misty forest has an immaculate quality when viewed in pictures, but it is actually a wild jungle: trees and views grow in an anarchic fashion, obstructing the trails and creating a obstacle course, decked with infinite thorns and spikes. Meanwhile, different species of blood leeches pose a constant menace: the green-striped leech (seen in photo) is known as bulalangwan and is notorious for attacking soft tissues. Wild boar, deer, and monkeys have been sighted in the forest; its rich biodiversity has gained scientific interest. This environment is uninterrupted from the basecamp to the summit; the trees obstruct not only movement but vision: there are no views atop this mountain, making it appreciable only to true enthusiasts who will enjoy the '4x4 trekking' in a less-frequented, pristine mountain trail.

This mountain is part of the Banahaw complex, together with Mt. Banahaw and Mt. Cristobal. Contrary to some reports, it is actually not covered by the DENR ban on climbing in Mt. Banahaw. From Los Baños and other towns, it is perfectly conical in shape, giving it a Mayon-like appearance. Although it does not have the rich culture and mysticism of its more popular counterparts, its abovementioned jungle gives it a unique and notable characteristic. Set in the highland town of Lucban, Quezon (525 MASL), it is bounded to the southwest by the town of Majayjay, Laguna, whose famed Taytay Falls has become part of the ideal Banahaw de Lucban itinerary, because of its proximity and accessibility from the trail.

The first part of the trek is a one hour walk from Brgy. Ayuti, Lucban to the ranger station of Southern Luzon Polytechnic University. The rough road here is spacious, and leads to the PLDT relay station with its towers. Beyond this is the ranger station, where you can spend the night before proceeding the next day to the summit. Here there is electricity and you can spend the night inside the station. Very early the next day, you can start the assault. With a light pack, it takes 4-5 hours to reach the summit; the trails are virtually unchanged except for a part where a river runs along an old magma flow uncovered by a landslide (~1100 MASL). This counts as a water source. Tree ferns, rattan-like vines and spiked palms dominate the scene throughout. Periodically, elevation markings can be seen posted in the trees.

There is a clearing at the summit that counts as a campsite. The atmosphere is similar with that of the crater campsite of Cristobal. A water source is available here. After returning to the basecamp, the trip to Taytay Falls in Majayjay requires another 2-3 hours. This waterfall has exceedingly clear waters, and is further discussed in a separate article.

It has become a local saying in Lucban that whenever somebody climbs Mt. Banahaw de Lucban, it rains in the mountain. When the author asked if this is true, one local quipped: "See for yourself!" And I say likewise!

ITINERARY
MT. BANAHAW DE LUCBAN + TAYTAY FALLS

Day 1
1800 ETD for Sta. Cruz, Laguna via Green Star bus in LRT-Buendia (P123.50)
2030 Take last jeepney trip Sta. Cruz-Lucban (P38)
2200 ETA Lucban (525 MASL), take tricycle to Brgy. Ayuti (P8)
2300 ETA Ranger Station (~800 MASL)

Day 2
0600 Wake up call / Breakfast
0800 Start trek to Banahaw de Lucban summit
0900 ETA Old Magma Flow (~1100 MASL)
1000 Major stop at Rest Area (~1400 MASL)
1100 ETA 'Mukha' (~1600 MASL)
1200 ETA summit of Banahaw de Lucban (1875 MASL). Exploration / Lunch.
1300 Start descent
1700 Back at Ranger Station
1800 Dinner / socials

Day 3
0700 Start descent to Taytay Falls
0930 ETA Taytay Falls; explore the system
1200 Lunch before departure
1300 Take jeep to Majayjay town (P12) then Sta. Cruz (P20)
1430 ETA Sta. Cruz
1500 Take bus bound for LRT-Buendia or Cubao
1800 Back in Manila

SPECIAL CONCERNS
The above itinerary can be done on a regular weekend, since Day 1 only eats up Friday night. The ranger station becomes a 'headquarters' from which you would launch the summit assault (Day 2) and the trip to Majayjay (Day 3). If properly coordinated with Sir Mario Nañola and the station is available, you can even do away with tents.

Sir Mario, being the caretaker of the mountain, is also the person to contact in securing permits and guide/s for the trek. He may be reached at +639194515472. There is an entrance fee of P50. Guide rates range from P500-600. Add a tip for the use of the station. Electricity is available so you can bring your chargers and gadgets.

Blood leeches (limatik) are a concern. Echoing the words of locals of Mt. Napulauan, the bulalangwan is said to be more dangerous, targeting the eyes, ears, nose, and other 'soft tissues'. Hence, body protection has a double purpose, the other being to help protect against the thorns. Minus these concerns the trail is actually benign.

TRIVIA
Although frequently referred to as such, the BDL-Taytay Falls trip is technically not a traverse. A climb route must cross mountain through its summit to be called a 'traverse'. Not even the Cristalino-Tatlong Tangke route of Mt. Banahaw (Dolores) can be called a traverese.
According to Long Henson, there are folktales that speak of a 'Princess Samantha' that dwells in the mountain in the same way that her reputed cousin, Maria, dwells in Makiling. My guide did not know of this legend but it is worth retelling. What was told me what that the airs of the mountain have a healing quality. An asthmatic who was brought to the summit was said to have been cured.

Geology notes: Mt. Banahaw de Lucban is actually a volcanic edifice (vent) of Banahaw. Scientists believe that BDL is the youngest volcano of the complex, forming from the old caldera. Although the last volcanic activities were recorded in 1721, 1743, 1843, and 1909 (Internet sources vary in dating the last volcanic eruption), Philvolcs continues to monitor BDL. In fact, there is a seismic station in Bgy. Ayuti -- along the trail to the Ranger Station.

Cultural notes: Lucban is famous for the Pahiyas Festival, held every May 15 in honor of San Isidro. The town's longganisa is a delicacy and a great pasalubong.

Mountaineering notes: Leo Oracion, the first Filipino to reach the summit of Mt. Everest (May 17, 2006), is a Lucbanin. Locals say that Sir Leo, as a young boy, used to climb Banahaw de Lucban frequently.

Sir GID umakyat po kami sa Mt. Banahaw de Lucban this Saturday and Sunday (July 25-26),and were shock when Sir Mario Nañola charge us 1,000 pesos for the 2 days and 1 night stay at the Ranger station, aside from guide fee na 1,500(2 guide) and we ask him bakit sobrang mahal naman ng bayad and sinabi nya bayad daw po yun sa pag stay nya dun ng saturday at sunday,hindi po namin sinabi na mg stay sya dun for two days, but before we contact him wala syang sinabi na ganun ang alam po namin ung guide fee is 500, ok lng po sana yun sa guide fee ang problema lng po umalis kmi ng 1:00 pm sa lucban and we arrive 2:15 sa ranger station, sinabi po nya na kailangan din bayaran ng whole day guide fee yung pag sundo samin ng kayang anak, Sir gid sana po maibistigahan po ang ganitong insidente, nkita po kasi ni Sir Mario na me kasama kming foreigner ang akala po siguro nya maraming pera ang mga mountaineer, nais lang po namin tong iparating at maging babala sa mga balak umakyat ng Banhaw De Lucban.

hindi din hawak ng TM ang tayabas peak. just to make sure na legal ang climb contact PASU and get permit etc...

however, its better if you have contact with TM para hindi ka na hirap get ng permit at iba na din kapag meron ka tropa sa LUCBAN.

Mga sir, sad to say di po tuloy akyat namin sa Banahaw de Lucban this coming 28 Dec. according to Sir Douglas Pena they dont issue permit during rainy season(Ber months) safety lang natin ang iniisip nila kasi sobrang dulas daw ng daan, pero February pwede na daw kaya hope it will push thru this coming Feb 2010.

Guys, Last Staurday and Sunday (Jan. 23-24)Umakyat kami ng Banahaw de Lucban with same contact person - Sir MARIO and guide Sir Silverio. Nakuha namin ang side nila and we are really disappointed sa mga mountaineer na masasabi nating walang galang at walang respeto sa mga local/ranger/guide sa lugar na kanilang inaakyat. Kung tutuusin dayo lang tayo dito, kung hindi kasya ang pera natin sa responsibilidad na alam naman nating dapat nating gawin eh marunong dapat tayong makipag usap sa kanila ng maayos, hindi yung mananakot pa tayo kesyo marami tayong contact at kilala sa lugar na yun. Be responsible mountaineer!. This is just to brought up na hindi masamang tao si Sir Mario or sionasabi nagsasamantala sa pera. Kami mismo ay nakaranas ng kakulanagn sa budget pero nung makipagusap kami ng maayos sa kanya walang naging problema, pinag stay pa rin nya kami at inasikaso. Kaya sa mga kasama kong mountaineer, wag nyong iwala ang respeto sa mga taong nakakasalamuha at nakakasama natin sa pag akyat. SALAMAT!

Hello Guys,

Galing kami last holy week sa Banahaw de Lucban. Me commentlang ako gusto i-share to my fellow mountaineers. I understand na me rules sila dun that we need to follow including guide fee. We paid 1,000.00 for 2 guides kasi malaki daw ang grupo namin, so kelangan daw namin eh 2 guides. Ok lang un kasi alam ko para sa safety din namin un eh. Eto ang masaklap na parte, ung unang guide (Pipoy) na kasama namin eh nang iiwan ng kanyang mga igina guide. Para namang hindi tama yun. Nagbayad kami sa kanila tapos di naman sya umalalay sa mga kasama ko. Buti yung isa guide (marion) sa huli, hindi sa lumampas sa mga kasama ko na nasa huli. Eto pa isa, according to Mario, di daw pwede umakyat sa peak na walang guide, pero marami kami nakasabay na umakyat ala sila guide na binayaran. Me palakasan ba dito? Nagtatanong lang po?

maam sir wala po palakasan sa bdl kung naiiwan naman po kkyo nang guide pwde nman po kyo mag salita sa kanila n hintayin kyo...............

Pia Manzano said...

SPiMC will be going up Mt. Banahaw de Lucban this coming May 15-16... I just called Sir Mario and he said that it is ok just as long as we confirm our trip so he can make sure we have a guide. I believe that guides are important to every climb even if you have been to that mountain many times. Locals (guides) still know best.
On another note, Sir Mario also said that we can not camp at the summit or anywhere near it, only at the ranger station. Is this true? We are not able to take a 3-day IT because of our work schedule and wanted to just have a 2-day trip, day1 going up then day2 going down.
Hope someone can provide me with reliable information.
Thank you!

It was a great weekend... though we arrived in Sir Mario's place late, he still allowed our group to pursue the peak. :) Thanks to Sir Mario for helping us and making sure we were all safe and secure. :)
Banahaw can not boast of a spectacular summit (there really is no view) but the trail is challenging, and the trip up is a long memory worth keeping. :)

Warning:
Those who happen to know Mang Lito... guide of Mt. Cristobal... our group was invited by him (while we had him as a guide) to hike Mt. Banahaw... our group couldn't resist the invite... come January 2011 we gave him the money for the registration, that he insists to send via LBC together with the letter of intent addressed to DENR Chairman. A few days before our climb he told our group that there was no permit given by the DENR due to unfavorable weather. And since then after continuous calls (that were answered but he pretends not to hear) and unanswered SMS... our group just gave up. Lesson learned that we hope no group will be fooled again. Please pass... thanks
