Mt. Babag

Mount Babag is the best answer for people who want a challenging trek within the city. It can be accessed by the most common route which is the Sitio Napo, Guadalupe. The trail of the mountain is slightly covered in vegetation, therefore trekking under the sun is not a big problem and it will not hurt your skin too much. The trail going to the peak of the mountain is a bit rough and steep and it needs stamina and endurance especially to those who are not into trekking. From the jump-off to the peak, the trek time will take around 3 hours or more depending on how frequent the breaks. After a long hour of trekking, Mount Babag will give you an elegant and intoxicating overlooking view of the city and mountain ranges.
