Chasing Mountains: Mts Manalmon and Gola

by - Friday, April 13, 2018

If you are new to climbing, Mts. Manalmon and Gola should be on your list. It is definitely perfect for beginner and you can climb the two mountains in one day just like what we did. These mountains offers different view from the usual you have in Rizal. Though I always believe that all mountains are different.

Though some would say Manalmong and Gola are relatively easy, with 196 masl, it possess novel landscapes and Madlum river and monkey bar you should try for extra activity. The view on the top is definitely worth it.
