Batulao’s name was derived from “Bato sa Ilao” (Illuminated Rocks) which later on became abbreviated to “Batulao.” According to local residents, every yearend the sun sets right between Batulao’s two peaks, creating a spectacular image of rocks surrounding a disc of red light.
Naakyat na ni Thyrone ang Mt. Batulao kaso hindi nila naabot ang summit sa kadahilanang si Thyrone at ang kanyang groupo ang nakakaalam, so gusto nyang ulitin. Ako naman, Mt. Batulao was my first summit and off we go.
4:00 am na kami umalis dito sa Makati papuntang EDSA-Taft MRT station para sumakay ng bus Going to the Jumpoff point sa Evercrest Golf Course (PhP 106.00) then rode a tricycle papunta sa portion kung saan magstart ang Trek (PhP 50.00). From there start na nagtrek, umaambon at foggy.... hindi maaraw kaya masarap magtrek.
