Trail

Of course, your hike is a date, so you wouldn’t want to be so tired and haggard when you reach the peak. Worry not ’cause this mountain will not exhaust you to the highest level and consume all your energy- the trail is very easy, and is perfect for beginners.

Your journey to the peak will start by crossing the Talamitam river via bamboo bridge. Oh, hawakain maigi si girlfie, baka mahulog sa iba. Then comes a mini hike passing by lush forests that will lead you to the a grassland slope. From there you can already see the view of the peak of Mt. Talamitam.

Actually, the grassland itself is already perfect for your date. So if you want to take a rest and enjoy your moment for a while, you can just make tambay in the grassland, and enjoy the view. (Edi kayo na)
