MT. GULUGOD-BABOY (DAY HIKE)
Anilao, Batangas
Jump-off Point: Philpan Dive Resort, Anilao, Mabini

Rain or shine, Mt. Gulugod-Baboy offers breathtaking views, especially from its peak. It is located in Anilao, Mabini in the province of Batangas. The mountain got its name from the contours of the peaks which resembles a pig’s back.

It  has a range of minor peaks (525 meters above sea level) with difficulty level of 2/9.  Anilao is more famous for its dive spots but the nearby hills are also a popular hiking destination that’s easy enough to be tackled by newbie climbers.
