There are tons of mountains that are just 2-4 hours away from Manila where you can enjoy nature tripping, mountain climbing and a whole lot more activities. After an exhausting trek, appreciate the breathtaking view of the place and reward yourself with cool water adventures.
1. MT. ROMELO
If you want to explore a lot of waterfalls, Mt. Romelo is an excellent destination for you. Buruwisan, Sampaloc, Lanzones, and Batya-Batya are among the falls that you can savor from this place. This mountain is situated in Siniloan, Laguna and is also known as ‘Famy‘ because of its neighboring town. It is nice to visit Mt. Romelo during summer to avoid the muddy trail, but it is still perfect during rainy season to catch a nice glimpse of the overflowing water of its waterfalls. Rappelling in the cascades of Mt. Romelo is another exciting activity to try. This place may have an immaculate beauty, but visitors must become more vigilant and cautious with their belongings due to the various cases of theft reported. It is recommended to climb this mountain in a group.
