Climbing Mt. Batulao is one of everyone's bucket list, as to mine. It's one of those mountain for beginners with a perfect view. Though some may say that it requires a bit technicalities, but its just on your way up to the summit, the photo above is a steep and requires a rope to go around up to the last stop to summit. If you're unsure and only just first timers, you may ask for assistance on your guide.

The view up there is worth it. Of course every mountain has their own fair share of those. Though the rants you'll hear about this mountain is the registration, its still up to you to climb it or not. Though this is a sensitive issue, most mountain-enthusiast don't hesitate to still climb the mountain. Just do our part and don't litter and abuse the mountain.
