Mt. Naguiling

Atis Capital of the Philippines Batangas Mountains Lobo Batangas Lobo Mountain Range Mount Naguiling
One of the tourist destinations in the province of Batangas is a town the sits the coast lines that become haven for both local and foreign scuba divers and tourist. Apart from being well-known as the Sugar Apple Capital of the Philippines, Lobo now became one of the best well-kept secret hiking destination near the Metro.

Mount Naguiling - located at the southern corridor of Lobo in Batangas, this peak is a candidate for Batangas tallest mountains is part of Lobo-San Juan Mountain Range that sits between the famous Mount Daguldol of San Juan and Bangkalan and Nagpatong Peak of Lobo.


Mount Naguiling starts in Barangay Jaybanga with a breathtaking views of Lobo-San Juan Mountain Range such as Bangkalan, Nagpatong, Naguiling and Daguldol plus the lush green rice terraces of Barangay Jaybanga.


The first part of the trail is almost similar to Mount Daguldol trail as it passes local houses with blogable sceneries. After passing a typical agricultural land we encounter the Y-intersection leading to the campsite and summit. From the intersection we trek 10 minutes to reach the campsite that offers a captivating views of Southern Batangas. 

From Y-intersection to the summit assault is approximately 2-3 hours trek on a bushes and trees where you can spot flora and fauna along your way.  One of the most memorable experience hiking Mount Naguiling is the exotic adventure with the nature and the extraordinary mystery of the place.

Cell phone signal in the Jump-off area fluctuates, take this into consideration when communicating to the locals/local officials of Brgy. Jaybanga. Once you gain a higher altitude you get cellphone signal but it takes one hundred meters or more.  


  1. Hi! I've been to Mt Tibig last year and it's also situated in Lobo. Do you need a private vehicle to go to the jump off? I'd like to go back to Lobo and climb Mt.Naguiling.

    1. Yes, you'll be needing a private vehicle or better hire a jeepney to get Barangay Jaybanga for it takes you a one-of-a-kind off the beaten ride. You may contact the contact numbers above! - Dios Mabalos!

  2. Hi! Do you know how much is it to rent a Jeep? I just read your message today. Thank you so much!

    1. I don't have idea on how much is the rental for jeep since we take private vehicle getting Barangay Jaybanga. You can contact Kuya Freddie Dilay and JR Dilay - 09123158600 / 09193763311 for your concern.


  3. Allowed po ba ang overnight sa Mt. Naguiling? Thank you.
