Owing to the exposed nature of Batangas’ friendly mountain trails and summits, Mt. Batulao, situated in Nasugbu, Batangas stands at 811+ meters above sea level, has a very convenient proximity and easy access is a 2-3 hour drive from the busy city of Mega Manila, Philippines. Hyped as one of the top favorites for trekking and mountain climbing most specially the newbies and youth, Batulao is a fitting destination for those seeking a day tour trip, a quick adventure fix. Batulao is mildly challenging 4/9 difficulty that may demand dabs of effort to make to the summit seeing the amazing 360-degree view of Batangas and its neighboring cities.
