Mt. Pamitinan’s infamous photo op spot!

Whoa, it’s been a while! I can’t believe the my last post here is my day hike to Mt. Batolusong. I still have a lot to share though, my trip to Bicol, Coron, Cebu and a day trip to Laiya! Guess they can wait. Haha.

This day hike was initiated by my good friend (also the person whom I first shared this idea of mountain climbing) but since we haven’t exercised and our bodies couldn’t probably take an overnight climb, we just decided to do a day hike instead. Mt. Pamitinan is located in Rodriguez, Rizal and is just an hour and a half away from Cubao. Looks practical! Initially, we wanted to invite a few close friends but then those close friends invited their friends and we were shocked we reached a total of 14 people!

  • 0500 – Meet up at Jollibee, Farmers Cubao
  • 0530 – ETD Rodriguez, Rizal

  • 0715 – Register and hire a local guide
  • 0745 – Start trek to Mt. Pamitinan
  • 1000 – ETA Summit. Photo ops and lunch.
  • 1100 – Start descent
  • 1200 – Rest at the junction (yes we had a lot of time to take rest haha)
  • 1300 – Start the final descent
  • 1400 – Back to Registration area, off to Wawa dam
  • 1410 – Swim at Wawa dam
  • 1500 – Wash up
  • 1600 – Take tricycle back and take a Van to Cubao
  • 1800 – ETA Cubao
