Nature Tripping

Experience Batangas outdoor and you will realize how blessed of a province it is. If you’ve had enough of the beaches and other recreational destinations in the province, dare to get extra adventurous and explore Batangas, wild and free.

TREKKING LAND FORMS

Taal Volcano Crater — This will give you the total adventure – from the boat ride to the Volcano Island, to your trek up to the crater, and then back. You can trace the trail to the crater by foot or for that “turista” experience, hop on for a horseback ride.

The crater of Taal Volcano will give you an impressive spectacle of Batangas below — an experience that is both moving and exhilarating.

Mt. Batulao — Another preferred destination for a day hike, Mt. Batulao in Nasugbu will give you another view of Batangas from the top (altitude: 811 MASL). Pointed out as providing a good climb for beginners, Mt. Batulao also became popular because it can be accessed easily from Manila.
