Waking up at 2 in the morning was worth seeing these scenery especially sitting beside you in the jeepney for the whole ride and back.

How to get there?
First gather your friends and assemble at a safe place (we met at Cubao KFC near SM Cubao), of course wake up very early (I did with my one eye awake, at 2am November 17, 2012) For a day hike it is advisable to start the travel time before dawn where the roads are still traffic free and the cold morning air will help to strengthen you before the actual climb. Bring water and trail food for your consumption, and it's always best to bring a few stash more to share with your hungry friends :). I personally advise for a girl like me to bring 2L to 3L of water, and chocolate bars. Sugar can give you energy and water is the fuel you will need to go a long mile. Take the bus from Cubao to SM Bacoor at Philtranco Alibangbang Cubao terminal. Get off at SM bacoor after 30-40 mins. We rented a jeep going to the DENR Office in Trece Martires. Register then start walking to the jumpoff point. Up the mountain you will meet lots of fellow hikers and families happily climbing together so if you're up for an adventure you should try it with friends and family too. The trip will be far from boring I assure you. The budget if you're curious is about 500 Pesos to 800 Pesos depending on your water and food consumption. The fares are 300 Pesos to 500 Pesos depending again if you would be joining a big group or bringing your own car. All in all (bring 800 Pesos to be safe) note that money is never a hindrance if you are a thrifty girl like me. Enjoy nature and leave the office even for one day (or more :P:P:P) you will have the best time of your life.
