Batangas - Mt. Gulugod Baboy Climb - September 20-21, 2009

My second climb up a mountain was in Mt. Gulugod Baboy last September 20-21, 2009, located in Anilao Mabini Batangas. With me are my "Social Climber" friends Ayie, Ed, Alex (he's the real climber), Julius and Bheng. It took us 2 hours to be able to reach the campsite. From there, it will take you a few more steps to reach the peak of the mountain.

@Chowking in Bauan, a stop over for our lunch

this is the jump off point of our climb

one of our countless rests... pawis nako... hahaha!

sige guys, akyat lang...

madami kami nakasalubong na baka... which scared us... kasi may sungay eh... hehehe!

another stop - at Ka Mely's Store where you can buy ice candy and ice water.
You can also get a porter here for only 200 pesos

wow! ang taas na namin...

rest muna ulit kame...

malapit na kame sa campsite...

We finally reached the campsite. This is our first pic sa campsite.

sympre dapat may jump shot... hehehe

setting up our tent. see my "tan lines"? hahaha!

it's dinner time... we had sinigang na baboy... sarap!

drinking session sa loob ng tent... bumuhos kasi ang ulan sa labas eh...

Gooood Morning.... at the peak...
Me, Ayie and Bheng

few more pics before our descend...

inunahan ko na sila... hehehe!

finally, narating din namin yung part na may kalsada na... malapit na kame makababa!!!

this is it! malapit na...

It took us 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach our starting point. Thank God everything went okay. Then, we decided to go Philpan Resort just across the jump off point. This is the favorite rest area of the climbers after a sweaty climb up Mt. Gulugod Baboy.

we had our lunch and went swimming in the clear waters of Anilao

it's time to go home...

I had a lot of fun in this trip. A new experience that I will cherish for a lifetime.

We're planning to climb again, I just still don't know where and when, but hopefully very soon. Thanks a lot again to my "Social Climber" Friends - Ayie, Ed, Alex, Julius and Bheng. 'Til our next climb! =p

Gulugod is my favorite mountain. I'd guided groups there, published an article in Inquirer about it, and I still haven't lost my love for that mountain.

Hi sir, pano po ang transpo to gulugod baboy? I've read na kailangan ng private transpo. Is there any alternative? Thank you! :)

@Lourrey May -From Manila, take a bus bound for Batangas City and get off at Bauan Diversion. From there, take a jeepney bound for Mabini, tell the driver that you will get off sa corner ng papuntang Anilao. From there, you can take a tricycle going to the jump-off which is in front of PhilPan Resort.
