My “barat moment” to a mountain of the south,Mt. Gulugod-Baboy is located in Anilao, Mabini in the province of Batangas. Gulugod-baboy is a Filipino phrase which means “pig’s spine.” The mountain got its name from the contours of the peaks which resembles a pig’s back as seen from Janao Bay.
I really enjoy and love being here, and today ( jan18,2015) is my 4th and im with sister. I usually climb this mountain for conditioning for an upcoming major climb and to take quality pictures with its very picturesque surroundings. Check out the pictures that I took using Samsung tab.
How to get here?
From Manila, Ride a bus bound to Batangas City Grand Terminal,
From Grand Terminal,ride a jeepney to Gasang,Mabini,
From Gasang , they have habal habal,(motor)- Malimatoc1 basketball court.
or trike 30php each.
From malimatoc 1, you can start walking to laurel, aproximately 1hr walking,but if tamad ka.. so lazy to walk,and dont want to feel the trill,you can rent a trike from gasang for only 250p.
Note: No invironmental fees.
but sometimes locals in the area will ask for 20p each,specially for those who will stay over night for camping. But for me its fine, they keep the mountain clean and safe.
