Rocky Trail




 After our rain-filled climb last month in Mt. Tagapo, we were again drenched here in Mt. Balagbag. We're lucky enough trekking under the rain, because if you were to trek this mountain during summer, you will definitely prefer to climb it this way.

 Mt.Balagbag is situated along the boundaries of Norzagaray, Bulacan and Rodriguez Rizal. Water from its tributaries contribute to the water that passes through Ipo Dam which then goes to the La Mesa Water Reservoir.





 
Sea of Clouds daw

 It is a favorite place among bikers and those who love an easy trek - it takes only over a hour to reach the campsite. However, it depends on your pacing and if you love to take pictures along the way, as the trail is well marked by a road that leads almost directly to the summit.

 The Summit is also serve as the campsite, which  can accommodate up to 20 tents. There is a Philippine Flag located at the summit area, and a small hut can be also found.

on the way to falls



 In our next day, we proceeded to our sidetrip. Mt Balagbag has a waterfall that looks like those  infinity pools.We reached the falls after two hours of descending - it looks magnificent!. The waterfall is somewhat challenging, some parts have rocks that were slippery and sharp.





The Falls


Leaving the falls





 We took our lunch beside the falls and then afterwards we explored and swam our hearts out!.

 Another memorable experience with my C&D Family, it was a nice and rewarding climb for all of us..
 Until our next rainy climb!
