We continue our traverse to Manabu Peak from Mt. Malipunyo. Our chosen exit point is Sto Tomas, Batangas. Manabu Peak is known as a “Cofee Mountain” because at the middle of the trail, there’s a hut owned by Mang Pirying, who offers homemade “Kapeng Barako” – absolutely for free.
Mt. Malipunyo belongs to the Malarayat mountain range, located around the municipalities of Sto Tomas and Talisay Batangas.
The traverse hike can be done in many ways – depending on the entry and exit point the group will choose. The itinerary can also vary depending on the number of peaks desired, and if there is a sidetrip.
