Mt. Kasahingan is the newest hiking destination in Nueva Ecija. It became popular because of its breathtaking beauty, relaxing ambiance, easy-to-moderate trails, gorgeous waterfalls, and pretty much accessible from Manila and other points in Luzon. Hiking this mountain can give you a rewarding experience and instagrammable spots.

The Trail: Easy to Moderate Type

Kasahingan has a combination of close and open terrain. The first part is walking on an unpaved road followed by the well-established but muddy terrain because of the irrigation system. Then, long and winding trails are covered with hardwood trees, shrubs, and bamboo. Of course, passing through a jungle trail is remarkable – proof that the area still has healthy forests. I think the hardest part of this hike is the 90-degree assault and river crossing. There are parts where hikers need to walk, hop on and off the slippery boulders, and cross the river with strong currents.

The Gorgeous View on the Summit of Mt. Kasahingan

The nearby ranges of the Cordilleras and Sierra Madre are visible because there’s a wide view on top while the trees and grass are dancing gracefully while the cold wind blowing. The campsite is wide and is barely covered so expect for direct sunlight.

The Waterfalls

The sound of the rushing water is everywhere because of the waterfalls. Each of the waterfalls has towering limestone cliffs, endless free-flowing cool crystal clear water, and a wide pool perimeter – a perfect spot to relax and for photo ops.

I can’t share any itinerary because we had someone organize the entire hike, from transportation, guide, permits, and others.
