2. Mt. Batulao
A lovely feature of Mt. Batulao in Nasugbu, Batangas, is its rolling hills.
Mt. Batulao is a favorite among trekkers because of its accessibility from Manila and its charming landscape of rolling slopes and green meadows through which the cool mountain breeze blows. There are two trails: the Old Trail and the New Trail. The latter is relatively easier as the Old Trail features challenging steep slopes as you reach the final ascent.
Mt. Batulao takes two to three hours to trek from the jump-off point at Evercrest Golf Course. Admission costs PhP20 for one trail and PhP40 for the two trails, but prepare as there are spots along the trail where some locals collect registration fees too. You can have a guide join you on your trek for PhP300 good for four persons.
