For this climb, we navigated both trails. Our ascend was through the new trail and though the old trail looked more difficult and longer, we still pursued with the old trail descend.  We just toyed, two is always better than one.

Day Hike Actual Itinerary
830-10am – Traveled from Manila to Nasugbu, had early lunch and prepared to summit
1030am – Start of trek through the new trail
12nn – Arrived at Janet’s house, rested for an hour
1pm – Resumed trek to summit (passed the registration area and paid the dayhike registration fee of P20)
215pm – Arrived at summit, enjoyed the view, took pictures
245pm – Started descent through the old trail which is opposite the new trail
415pm – Arrived at old trail’s registration area. Registered again and paid P20.
530pm – Arrived at jump-off, had rest and clean-up
6pm – Travel back to Manila

    1. Hi, the safe budget for Batulao climb for a group of 3 persons about P700 per head or P2,100 for the whole group. Breakdown as follows:
      Bus from MRT-Taft Station to Evercrest-Nasugbu = P155 x 3 = P465
      Tricycle from Evercrest to Jump-off = P100
      Guide (there are many kids along the way offering guide ship, be sure that you agreed first of the fee before they accompany you) = P250 to P300
      Registration fee = P20 x 3 = P60
      Registration fee = P20 x 3 = P60 (only if you exit in a different trail)
      Food and other miscellaneous = P150 x 3 = P450
      Tricycle from jump-off to Evercrest = P100
      Bus from Evercrest-Nasugbu to Manila = P155 x 3 = P465

      With regards to whether you need a guide, it depends on how your group but it is not required.

      Hope this helps.

      thanks and goodluck!

    1. hi, thanks for dropping by...

      at the aguinaldo highway, take a bus going to nasugbu, you need to clarify with the bus driver/conductor if they'll pass by the evercrest golf club entrance, then from there take a trike to the jump-off.

      hope this helps :)

    1. yes i believe many have done climbing batulao at night but most likely through the old trail where camp sites are located.

      the new trail is a literal trekking at the ridge and is therefore not advisable to trek at night.

      happy climbing :)

  13. Hi there! Me and my cousins were planning for a day hike this coming february 2.. Just want to know if the jump off is near Calleruega?? We're from Amadeo Lng... Ask na din po if the registration and guide fee are still the same?? and is it possible if we start our trek sa Evercrest plng and not to take a tricycle ride? Lastly, what's d best possible time to start our trek??
    2 many questions but your response will be much appreciated.. tnx a Lot!! ^^

    I really Like your bLog by the way.. ^_^

    1. hi, yes, the jump-off is near careluega... my last climb was last october and I believe the registration fee is still the same... no problem with trekking all the way from evercrest if you want to cut trike cost.. best time to trek depends on whether you're doing it a dayhike or an overnight camping. for dayhike, i strongly suggest to start early as batulao is a barren mountain, you should be able to reach the summit ideally before 10am...

      hope this helps :)

      happy climbing..

  15. hi! my gfs and i are planning a day hike this coming feb 16. and we plan to bring a car.
    1. ask ko lang is there a safe place where we can park there?
    2. we plan on doing the itinerary you have posted but much earlier like 630ish we start trekking na to avoid the head going up kase. would that be fine?
    3. what's the best trail to actually enjoy the hike? should we use the new trail going up and then the old trail for our descend or vise versa?

    sooo sorry dami tanong. its just that ive been to pulag and i really enjoyed it and now my friends want to experience it also but they want to start for a day hike. :)

    thanks a bunch!! :)

    1. hi, nhalin, thanks for dropping by....
      - there is no "safe" parking area as you will park by the roadside but we've done this countless time, no issues encountered so far.
      - an early trek is highly suggested to avoid the noon heat but just the same, bring something to cover you from the sun.
      - if you have 1st timers with you, i suggest you ascend by the new trail as the slopes are pretty manageable then you can descend through the old trail to experience the wall part, the steep sections and to see the campsite area..

    2. hi again..
      it's only 3 days before our climb and somehow one of our group wants to accompany his child.. a 7 year old girl.. is it safe to accompany kids at mt batulao? she's an athletic kid and loves adventure too..
      we just want some advice, maybe you've been through this setup or some group you've met..and we're hoping you could help..
      thanks in advance..

    3. hi, i've added pictures of the trail in my new post for you to have a glimpse of the trail -- especially the difficult areas..
      http://philippine-mountains-and-beyond.blogspot.com/2014/01/mt-butalao-dayhike-plus-overnight.html

      - during our last climb, we have 2 kids of 7 years old was with us but both have done mountain climbing before (one had been through mt pulag - akiki trail at 3 years old) ... it can be done but at least 3 adults are required to assist them in getting down or going up.

      - can't advise whether it is safe especially for first timers... take plenty of care if ever..

      have a safe climb :)

  17. Hi M&B!
    We've reached the summit of Mt. Batulao! And it really is great being on top of the mountain!
    We start our trek at 7am and reach the summit at 8:45.. As in wlang tigilan tlaga.. It was because our 1st group is ahead of us and hoping na maabutan namen sila..We did it with extra care naman.. Picture 1-2-3- shot then go n ulit.. Di mo din ramdam ung pagod kc ung goal is to reach the top..Every peak is a challenge pero overwhelming ung happiness kc its a once in a lifetime experience pra samen.. Then we did also met a lot of mountaineers going up and down.. kya tanggal pagod din kc everytime may masasalubong ka.. they smile and greet you Good Morning and Ingat po!.. Everyone is trying to help even with a simple "Ingat".. and sometimes lend their hands for us to be safe especially when we're descending.. Marramdaman m tlga ung pagiging thoughtful and caring ng bawat mountaineers kahit hindi kau magkakakilala.. And that would help a lot especially for first timer to strive and succeed in climbing!
    It's a one day great adventure.. Bundok then followed by dagat in Nasugbu..
    Excuse me for being too comfortable on your blog.. gusto q lng po i-share ung experience na to.. And thanks to you too.. Your advice did help a lot! ^_^
    Pictures are not uploaded yet but I'll share it to you soon, of course, if you won't mind.. Thanks again!
