MT. TALAMITAM: Day Hike near Manila

So I opened the year 2016 with an adventure in the form of another hike with Trail Adventours! We went on a quick and fun hike to Mt. Talamitam, and had our lunch while some had a dip at Tinipak River on the way back down. A good plus was also the meal we had in Tagaytay on our way back to Manila!

One thing I liked most about this hike would be the grassy fields that made up most of the trail. There are a few steep parts, but nothing that can't be overcome. I got sunburt since it was really sunny, and I forgot to put on sunblock - I guess that's one of the things you might want to keep in mind since compared to other mountains covered by trees, this one is more open.

Overall, this mountain is still one that I can vouch for in its being labeled as a "for beginners" hike. It's exciting, scenic and in a way, relaxing. Now who's looking forward to more adventures this 2016?
