Parrot’s Beak, Mt Pico de Loro, Maragondon, Cavite, Philippines

Summer is almost over, and vacation planning can get increasingly difficult. Also, if you’re looking for rest and relaxation, beaches tend to be crowded with what seems to be the entire city.

If you have a day to spare for some adventure, climb a mountain. It may not sound restful or relaxing, but it’s actually a very good getaway.

If you’ve never done it before, that’s alright. There are several mountains that are relatively easy to climb, like Pico de Loro in Mt. Palay Palay, Maragondon, Cavite.

Its major jump-off point is Magnetic Hill in Ternate, a couple of hours away from Metro Manila. Pico de Loro was named for the towering formation at its peak which resembles a parrot’s beak. The mountain isn’t without historical significance, either. It is said that Andres Bonifacio was almost banished to Pico de Loro by Emilio Aguinaldo in 1897, but was executed on Mt. Tala instead.

Today, the mountain is a DENR-protected area. The climb to the summit, though four hours long, is manageable and pleasant thanks to the leafy forest ceiling that shades hikers from the harsh sun.

The falls also provide a refreshing treat for sweaty dust-coated hikers, but as of late, nothing remains except dry earth where the water used to flow.
