Mt. Pinagbandirahan also known as Gulugod Baboy is one of my favorite hikes. What I love with this mountain is the amazing view of the Batangas Bay and Balayan Bay. The view of the horizon where the ocean meets the sky is one of the highlights of this mountain.

How to get there?
From Manila ride a bus going to Batangas Grand Terminal (Fare: more or less Php165). If you’re from Cavite, there’s a van terminal in Pala-Pala in Dasmarinas going to Batangas Grand Terminal (Fare: Php150). Then from the terminal ride a jeep going to Anilao then ask the driver to drop you off to Mabini Crossing (Fare: Php37). From there, ride a tricycle going to the registration site of Mt.
