How about hiking 2 mountains in a day? Impossible? Not really. It could be difficult, but certainly doable with proper planning of time and destinations. Below is a photo taken from the summit of Mt. Manabu in Sto. Tomas, Batangas. The mystic Mt. Banahaw is barely discernible, covered with haze and a few clouds near its summit.
Our group of 12 climbers met at Fiesta Mall in Lipa City, Batangas the other Sunday at 6:00 am. After taking our breakfast of lomi soup worth Php 40/bowl in a Sto. Tomas eatery, we arrived at Mt. Manabu's jump off point at past 7:30 am.
