    Love the fotos! Your post reminded me to do some physical activity this year; to also free myself from a growing love affair with the dining table 🙂

    Very nice photos of the summit! How does this compare with the Mt. Pinatubo hike in difficulty? Would you know if there is parking at the Cuenca Registration center if you have a car?

    Hi,It looks to me that you went alone. Did I understand it right? Let's say I a newbie in hiking, will you recommend this trek for me?

    I'm gonna answer the question above since I hiked the new trail last Feb2.If you're reasonably fit and have a good pair of trekking shoes with good traction, you can survive a day hike. Be warned though, this is a new trail and the soil is still loose plus the fact that you're climbing uphill with 60 – 90 degree angle.I don't recommend this Mountain for newbies due to the new trail. Pico de Loro is an easier hike at this point.

    @ fyhmd,Mount Pinatubo is more difficult for me. The Cuenca Registration is just a small table in a narrow street. Maybe, you can look for a parking space in the town proper market and/or in the Barangay Hall.

    @ iaadamlim,Hi, much better if you're going to try other mountains first like Mt. Gulugod Baboy. That's much easier and safe. When I went there, even those tenured mountaineers slipped and really had a hard time – the trail is so loose, and it's like 100% assault.

    Yes, I agree, we wont recommend Mount Maculot for newbies. Everyone should go there with proper trekking shoes – not slippers nor rubber shoes.Good thing, got to do a Day hike here just a day before they're going to close the old trail and create a new one.

    Hi po! I took the old trail. Di ko pa po na-try yung new trail na ginawa nila. Ang alam ko po may ibang way yung pa-grotto. Pero pwede din na traverse ang gawin, na from Rockies, pagbaba mo Grotto ang daan.

    Hi! We are doing the traverse next weekend. Marami po bang makukuhang guides for a traverse Rockies-Grotto? Or which is better, Grotto to rockies? Thanks!

    @ Dinah, marami naman po. bago pa lang mag-jump off may sasalubong na sayo na mag-aalok. Kaya lang medyo pricey – Php750.00.

    I would recommend the bus stations located at buendia para sa trips to cuenca. Lemery-bound trips do ply and will be passing through cuenca so sa palengke na mismo ang baba ninyo. 🙂

    Hi po, I recommend not to go there solo. Mas okay po if you'll go there by group. I think mas safe kapag ganun
