Explore the lush greeneries of Mt. Manalmon and Mt. Gola in Bulacan through this twin hike tour to both of their peaks. As a trip that will have you conquer two summits, this experience is better fitted for hobbyist hikers who already have experience climbing. This day tour is already inclusive of transportation from and to Manila, the service of a guide, a personalized souvenir bag tag, and all the necessary fees.
Your adventure starts in the early morning when your guide picks you up from your accommodation within Metro Manila or Cavite (1 pickup point only). You will then travel to San Miguel, Bulacan, and will be dropped off in Barangay Sibul. This area serves as the jump-off point to your first mountain, Mt. Gola. Before the trek, you can also take the time to have an early breakfast here. Meals are not included in the package, so make sure to pack your own food for this excursion. After finishing your meal, you will register at the tourist center and undergo a quick briefing on the safety rules before heading out.
On the way to the peak, you will have to go across a river via a bridge made of two cable wires anchored to each end of the crossing. To get to the other side, you will have to hold onto one wire while walking on the other. While it may seem intimidating at first, you won't need to worry as you will be safely secured to a third wire just above the bridge while you make your way past the river. Once you get to the other side, you will continue trekking to Mt. Gola's summit. At the peak, you will be greeted by panoramic scenes of the nearby river and hills covered in verdant trees. As you admire the view from here, you can also take the time to rest and snap a couple of photos.
When you're ready to continue, you will start making your way to mountain number two, Mt. Manalmon. At the summit, you will find yourself overlooking Mt. Gola and the surrounding landscape. You can take another moment to rest here and have a photo-op to commemorate having conquered two summits in one day. If you packed lunch, you could also enjoy your meal here while admiring the view.
Following your time in the mountains, you will now go spelunking inside the Bayukbok Cave. From the cave, you will then head to the Madlum River for a refreshing swim, a perfect reward after a morning of hiking and spelunking. When you're good to go, you will head back to your accommodation in Metro Manila or Cavite City.
