Olrayt! excited na ko... hope everything will go well... malamig ba sa taas? kelangan ko ba ng jogging pants (ay wala pala ko nun) or mag maong pants ako pag nasa taas na?
hummmm i bet its cold up there specially months of feb to march during night time but you will curse the sun in the morning hehehe you dont need maong pants sir just your regular bike shorts dont forget to bring arm warmer for the sharp leaves of tlahib
1) don't bring anything white, your laundryperson will get really angry if you bring it home with another color. 2) don't bring maong, if it gets wet....oooh boy....it's one heave load....
yeah, it might be cold up there. just bring jogging pants and a long sleeved cotton shirt. that would be more than enough
don't be left behind after 7:30 am, the sun will be burning the campsite be ready to descend by 7:00. we normally break camp around 6:45. but our mess kits and cook sets still out of the bag in case we need a quick meal before heading down. but our tents and sleeping bags are already packed and ready
Wow, Nice View! It took us 1 and 45 mins to climb the camp site. Its real fun! We watch the sun set at the rockys. Its really cold at night specially at the break of dawn. But the bad thing is, scarcity sa food, hehehe... good thing I have my own snacks... I cant sleep becasue of the strong wind bumping our tent... I almost felt our tent will collapse.. and it does! it gave up! no choice but to stay outside and wait for the sun.. our tent collapse 5 am.. so no hassel to wait for the sun and enjoy the cool breeze of fresh air. After the hike we went to lake shore and swim for awhile, the water is not salty, i wonder why, un pla its not a sea water, i did not notice its a Taal lake pala, hehe... here are some of my pics.. hope, next time we will have our own PinoyMTBiker hike trip..

the first time I climb mt maculot... is wayback 1994.... whew!!! tanda ko na pala..... I fell in love with this place... keeps me coming back always even Im alone..... what can I say about this mountain...... dami mumu!!!
hmmm...isa pala kayo sa mga nag iingay at nagkakalat ngayon dun tsk tsk tsk.
Honestly...been climbing for long time now, but I really avoided climbing Maculot. Not only there's lot of cases Holdapan but also because the trail is badly eroded. Not considering with its close proximity to Manila, andaming maiingay at nagkakalat sa taas.
Anyway, we cant generalize na rin, baka mas environmentally aware yung grupo sa mga napabalita noon. Since 3 hrs lang pala ang ascent, you can start bit late para nde mainit umakyat.
i guess it's time for them to temprarily suspend climbing to mt. maculot and have it rehabilitated, just like banahaw. sayang, it's one of the finest mountains pa naman for indoctrination climbs.

in my opinion... try to avoid climbing maculot na... maculot was never been like used to be many years ago....bugbog na masyado.... but still the view from the rockies still remains he he he..... may sari-sari store na sa taas ngayon.... they are teaching mountaineers to be a spoiled ones.... ang daming tao pa.... may mga naglalagay ng mga tali na parang binili nila yung part ng campsite....and mga magnanakaw..... maganda na lang ang makulot pang day hike na lang..... my first climb there was almost 10 years ago pa... maganda pa ang trail... no vandals... alang basura..... and walang reservation sa campsite! and kakaunti pa ang mga tao dun....pwede mong iwan ang mga gamit mo sa campsite then go down to buy some supplies for another night.... habang tumatagal nasisira na rin..... lumalawak ang trails and new trails are being established too....
anyway good for beginners too..... try climbing mt. manabo a good alternative for maculot....goodluck
wers mt manabo located sir an dhow to get there
maraming bikers ang isinumpa! BAKIT??? kasi karamihan satin may ITLOG sa binti
