Popular Mountain for Hiking

Mount Mariveles, Tarak Ridge, Bataan

 

Like Mounts Natib and Samat, the slopes of Mount Mariveles were battlefields during the American and Filipino defense of Bataan against Japanese forces in 1942. Situated in the middle of the lower portion of Bataan Peninsula, this 1288 meter high mountain is a popular mountaineering destination. Climbing the mountain requires a long, hot trek from the foothills to steep upper slopes. Hopefully, you’ll get to cool off from a river crossing halfway up the mountain. For the final leg, there’s a rocky, windy trail to the campsite and the summit. But once there, enjoy a scenic view of the beaches of Bataan and the South China Sea to the west, Corregidor Islands and Mount Pico de Loro to the south and Manila Bay, with distant lights of Manila, to the east.

 

Hoe to get there: Fly to Manila then take a bus to Mariveles, Bataan.

 


Philippines Cuisine Characteristics

The traditional way of eating is with the hands, especially dry dishes such as inihaw or prito. The diner will take a bite of the main dish, then eat rice pressed together with his fingers.

This practice, known as kamayan, is rarely seen in urbanized areas. However, Filipinos tend to feel the spirit of kamayan when eating amidst nature during out of town trips, beach vacations, and town fiestas.
