Mount Banahaw is currently in restoration period since 2004 that’s why it is prohibited for any climbing related activities though there are still few breaks it. When I saw it while at the summit of Mount Banahaw it become notable for me, I fell in love with it further every time I pass Maharlika Highway (Pan-Philippine Highway) and when I visited my home in Visayas through Lucena Port in Quezon province, I witnessed how it was majestic from a far.

One of the many things that I really appreciate when I joined the mountaineering group is to discover the beauty of my country on its own. We made a tour in san Pablo Laguna because of the Seven (7) Lakes that it has. All the Seven Lakes are near to each other. One of the Seven Lakes is Kalibato Lake where we did a little bit of trek going down to the lake. I was not disappointed after seeing the view above. Mount Banahaw is the tallest mountain in CALABARSON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon Provinces) area. Photo captured last September 2011.
