  2. Sir, what if wala/ kulang tent namin.. May narerentahan din po ba? Kung meron magkano kaya? Plano namen this january 24, 2014. Puro kami newbies. Thank you

  3. Hi! Love your post. Question lang sana ako. Required ba ang camping fee na P150? Or kung may dala kaming tent, okay na kahit di magbayad yun?

    Akyat kami dyan this long weekend. Yung Niyugan Campsite ba is yun na yung summit? Like what if 12 nakarating na kami dyan.:)

  4. Kuya, thanks for this..You really helped us get some basic info.Plano kasi namin magasawa gawin to and if ever, this will be our first time! I’m so excited. More power to you and God Bless!

  5. good day sir. ask ko lang po kung paano transport nyo going back to manila na. meron po bang mga jeep malapit sa registration going to lipa na. and how is the fare? thanks:)

    • Not sure. Yung masakyan nyo na jeep going dun ask nyo na din ung schedule the following day para d kau maiwan if ever wala. Nung pumunta kami nakisabay kmi sa ibang grupo na ngrent ng jeep para less hassle then hati hati sa bayad.

  6. hi, sino po aakyat ngayung may?pwd sumama? beginner po aq aq lng mgisa thank you..tex me up 09166951594

  7. @manonglakwatsero: salamat po sa updated info nyo. we are planning to climb this weekend there. nabasa ko sa comments dito na may mura daw na cottage na pangalan yellow house? may number na po ba kayo dun and alam nyo how much? plan kasi namin to dayhike sabado tapos baba then overnight sa cheap pero malinis at secure na cottage.
    may dala rin po kaming sasakyan. may idea po kayo magkanu parking dun overnight?
    marami pong salamat uli sir. Godbless

    • Hi Good Day!

      Unfortunately wala na yung number. Dun sa registration meron din mga cottages just not sure how much rate nila sa cottages dun. Since may dala naman kayo auto madali nalang kayo makakapaghanap if ever mahal. I also don’t have info sa parking rate kasi kung magstay naman kau sa mga cottage dun libre na yun. The last time I checked around 50 pesos un kasi di kmi nagstay sa mga cottages dun.

      I hope you don’t mind updating us after your hike so others are informed. TIA!

      Stay safe and have Fun!

  8. Hello sir, We’re planning to climb this mountain next weekend.

    -Would you know if pwede po magrent ng tent saknila and dadalhin sa peak/campsite?
    -Kung overnight po ba, yung guide po ba saknla may sariling tent n dadalhin kung san sya pwede matulog? let’s say meron kaming sariling tent na dala din, or bababa po sya and babalik na lang the next day para sa continuation ng trek?

  9. Last n umakyat kmi mga sir, dna kmi pinadaan sa seaside, pinagbawal n ng mga resort owner. with regards po s guide, sa registration meron, just ask them, and required na daw for P600 kung overnight.

  10. Magkano po yung house sa beach? Plano po namin na hindi na magdala ng tent at mag beach camp after a day trekk
