Mount Masaraga

Where to NEXT? 

Today that out-of-the-door activities boom and continuously booming in, many people are getting more and more addicted specially to mountaineering because it distressed and let people explore beyond their limits. 

A week after my Mount Palali dayhike in Nueva Vizcaya, I was invited by my friend from One Hike Mountaineering Club to join their invitational hike at one of the three beautiful mountains of Albay - Mount Masaraga.

Mount Masaraga
Sitio Sabluyon, Brgy. Amtic, Ligao City

Located 500 kilometers away south-east of Manila, Ligao City being situated at the foot of the majestic Mayon Volcano showcase hills, lakes, caves, coastal areas and mountains. Mount Masaraga has been called as one of the best-keep secret hiking destination of Albay that offers the stunning views of Mts. Mayon, Malinao, Asog, Isarog and the panoramic views of Albay coastal towns. 

Imagine Mayon Volcano at your back, awesome right?

The Descent

Special concern: For those who want to conquer Mount Masaraga, I suggest to ready yourself for the Unli-fiesta of LIMATIC and bring your own rope for the rope segment as you go on the final challenging assault before reaching the summit that would offer you an awesome and sweet view of the worlds famous Mayon Volcano. 

Travel brings power and power brings LOVE.
