    Good break up of the itinerary. It sure helps when you visit for the second time, you are well prepared.
    The climb took very less time and another trip there you end up setting records. 🙂

    I’ve never hiked at night before – but it must be SO worth it for the sunrise! How far is it to the top of Mt Batolusong? I know it only took you 2 1/2 hours, but maybe a slow hiker like me would need extra time!

      I am a seasonal hiker. Beginners can actually climb Mt. Batolusong the same amount of time that it took me to reach 645 MASL.

    I’m falling in love with hiking, never really done that much of it in the past, but I’m finding its a real thing for me to do. Hiking at night sounds pretty hard core though. Mt Batolusong looks amazing, I love your images too. Thank you for sharing.

    Your pictures are so mesmerising! Is it the edit or the magic of the trek! 🙂 Love the tones! Thanks for sharing precious tips and info about the trek. Felt I was hiking with you when you described the walk in the dark and the first ray of sun!

    Thanks for sharing this excellent guide to Mt. Batolusong. The views are quite fascinating from up there. Great for a group outing. Nice to read about mountains in the Philippines from the usual beaches I have read about most often.

    We hiked this too hoping for the sea of clouds. Unfortunately we didnt catch it but loved the hike nonetheless

    Mt. Batolusong looks beautiful – the landscape is stunning in your photos – very windswept! 2am is an early morning though, wow! But what an experience to be among the grassland slopes known of the Mapatag Plateau. It looks magical, as if from a fairytale book.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, photos and suggestions of itinerary 🙂

    This sounds like it was an incredible hike. Leaving in the dark must have been quite challenging, I love the idea of the trail to Kay-Ibon to see the falls . I would really enjoy that!

    Thanks for the great photos and sharing this.

      Hello Danica,

      Yes from Cubao to Cogeo. Not sure for Cogeo to Sampaloc. As far as I can remember 5am ang first trip ng jeepneys dun.
