Mt. Gulugod Baboy with Anilao, Batangas Beach Sidetrip

If you are looking for a mountain for beginners, then Mt. Gulugod Baboy is the right choice for you. As in right and perfect choice. You will reach the summit in less than 5 minutes. No kidding. But that was because we started the trek in a different jump-off, where vehicles are allowed to climb the mountain. So, if you are planning to trek this mountain, try using the jump-off near Philpan Dive resort, yet still, this mountain is perfect for first timers.

Here are the views at the summit:



Meanwhile, here are the photos we’ve taken at the beach just near (walking distance) Anilao port: IMG_3195
