There’s more to conquer.

If you love both the beach and the sea, Mt. Daguldol might just be the mountain for you. Easy assaults and minor rock climbs await hikers in this mountain. The trek to the summit usually lasts for 2 hours and you can spend half a day for the whole climb. However, hikers have reported that most parts of the beach, although clear, could be littered with trash. If you want a peaceful swim, walk the length of the beach and look for the perfect spot.

Mang Lizardo’s place is also a famous stopover where you can have lunch and have your fill of buko juice before walking the rest of the way to the summit.

How to prepare: Not much gear is needed, just make sure you have lots of water on hand.

Tours: Contact Tatay Ireneo, a local guide(0905 836 5708), a DIY tour might be better for this mountain
