Historically speaking, Bataan is one of the provinces in the Philippines that has a huge contribution to Philippine history, political or not. Bataan belongs to Region 3 or commonly known as the Central Luzon provinces. This province is separated by Manila de Bay from NCR and Cavite. During my visit in the province, I noticed that the people are accommodating and are living in simple way. Aside from that, Bataan also has a lot to offer in terms of tourist destinations. Let’s start with:

Mt. Tarak
We’re done with the beauty by the waters, let’s check at the higher altitude. Photo above was taken at the Papaya river, one of the beautiful spots in Mt. Tarak. This mountain can be challenging because it is four to six hours trek on a jungle terrain but after the tiring trek, the nature will reward you with calming river in the middle of the forest. Plus the fact that Mt. Tarak also has a gorgeous sceneries on the summit. Our story here: Mt. Tarak

Samat is situated in the municipality of Pilar, Province of Bataan, almost three hours travel from Manila. Our story here: Mt. Mount Samat
