Birthday Climb at the Pig's Spine (Mt. Gulugod Baboy) + Fortalez Island

(c) Rizza Salas x Gulugod Baboy side trip to Fortalez / Oscar Island

               To leave you stunned. Towering at 525 MASL, you can purely enjoy Mt. Gulugod Baboy's vibrant scenery of rolling hills, the 360-degree scenic view of Batangas with the West Philippine Sea and dramatic view of the sky in the background.

Gulugod Baboy, means pig's spine, because of the contours of the hills. “Gulod”, however, means hill; “pig’s hill” can also depict the pastoral scene of the mountain. The mountain has three peaks, the first is 470+ MASL "Gulugod Baboy", the second is 485+ MASL "Gitna", and the third which is the highest peak at 525+ MASL "Mt. Pinagbanderahan" (or as what the mountaineers referred to as the real Gulugod Baboy).
