Mt. Marami, a cool overnight camp

Mt. Marami
Mt. Marami is one of the hiking destinations in Southern Luzon because of its proximity from Manila. Not only that, it is also one of the most visited mountains in the province because of its simple and gradual trails. Walking on its terrain can give you relaxation because everything is surrounded by green while the mountain slopes from afar are picture-perfect. You can't stop yourself from a death-defying pose on the rock formation called "silyang bato." Fruit-bearing trees, coconuts, bananas and other crops can give you a farmville feeling while the birds are singing their lullabies.

Hiking & Camping Guide, How to Get Here, and Other Things You Need to Know.



The Trails | More Information

It has a gradual trail but has several fork trails so hiking guides are recommended. During the dry season, the terrain is fine but totally different during the rainy season. The soil turns into a deep, sticky and muddy terrain. Grass, flowers and fruit-bearing trees are visible in most parts of the trail to the campsite.

The Campsite | Things to Remember

The campsite is located a few meters away from the summit. The area is open, wide and surrounded by tall grasses. Since it's open, you can easily feel the cold breeze during sunset and still gets colder in the evening. There are shrubs and grass, so having an insect repellent is highly recommended.
