Conquering Mountains: Mt. Talamitam

By Wanderingjoshua
I have set my sights on another mountain for the weekend that mountain is Mt. Talamitam in Nasugbu, Batangas. It was only a day trip but the hike was exciting and the sights were amazing. We took the bus to Brgy. Bayabasan for P124.

We walked for a few minutes to find the jump-off point at the base of the mountain. We hired a local guide to help us get up and down the mountain, the guide costs P300.

At the start of the trek we were briefed about how some climbers had to be rescued because of heat stroke. After walking for a few minutes we began to understand why.

The trek to the peak

Mt. Talamitam was bare and had little to no shade unlike its sister mountain, Mt. Batulao which was filled with trees and tall grass.

We were fortunate that the wind was blowing fiercely to provide us respite from the scorching sun. Without the strong winds we would've been dehydrated or worse heat stroked.

Mt. Talamitam provided us with a great view of rolling hills, plains, the countryside, and different kinds of plants and grass.

Hiking is best experienced with friends and new found friends. Conquering another mountain was a fulfilling experience.
How to get to Mt. Talamitam:
Go to MRT Taft Station then ride the bus bound to Nasugbu and tell the driver you'll get down at Brgy. Bayabasan. 
Expenses:
Bus to Brgy. Bayabasan - P124
Bus to MRT Taft Station - P124
Guide Fee - P60 (P300 split with 5 people)
Total Expenses w/o Food = P308
***We brought our own food to avoid incurring additional expenses.
