We started our hike around 4 or 5pm, and it can already be considered a night hike since the sky had already darkened by the time we reached Station 2.
Here’s a map on Station 5 where we stopped for a rest.
The highest point of the mountain is marked with a white cross.
My shots aren’t as nice as I intended them to be, but it really is so beautiful up there, and so peaceful.
Before I finish this article I just wanted to say how important communication is and that everybody should be able to communicate all around the world but we can’t do that if we don’t speak the same languages. Did you learn a foreign language in school? Can you speak it fluently? Don’t let those years and money spent be a waste! You can “Speak Any Language Instantly” and it’s free. Everybody in the world speaks on of 15 languages. And I give you all 15 languages, for free! After finishing reading my article, please visit http://www.AnaEzine.webs.com because this 3-minute program will make you fluent and scientist research has shown that speaking a second language fluently will increase the size of the brain, make it disease resistant, and slow down aging so that you live longer and have a quicker mind and more productive life!

This mountain is a great introduction to hiking for beginners since it has easy access and short trails. This is also my first time to experience a night hike and I prefer night than dayhike already!
A 2 in 1 café, this place is heaven for dog & cat lovers! What’s even better is that this place is just in Cubao. Yes, Cubao! The furbabies were so adorbs and sweet and fluffy we wanted to stay longer than we would have, if only it wasnt a workday when we visited. But well, we can always go back 😉
I know what you’re thinking, “Pfft it’s just like any other McDonalds branch”. Well not really, this branch in Tagaytay has the free scenic view of the Taal Lake! And it’s very easy to get there!
Another foodie haven to try, fellas! A friend brought me here one morning when we craved for some foods that is not from any convenience store, and thank goodness we came to the right place and it’s so refreshing and cozy, and you’ll be comfortable as if you’re on your own home.
Calling the attention of all meat lovers! You have to try out Hogs and Cattle Steakhouse as they have the tastiest Wagyu I’ve ever tasted, really. And the good thing is that you can have it unlimited for only P899 with unlimited prawns as well.

They have a branch in SM Moa Pasay and the other one is located on Century City Mall in Makati.
