Located in Brgy Lipata, Lipata Island, Padre Burgos Quezon, this one of the optional activities that is part of 1st Padre Burgos Adventure by Yabag. Org, together Mang Uro as our guide and of course Sir Migs, our head adventure organizer. Some of the trippers tries to hike the slope of Mt. Lipata. This mountain has an elevation standing high above the surrounding area with small summit area, steep slopes and local relief of 300m or more.

Actually this mountain has no established trail because this is not a really hiking destination. But this mountain is can be considered as one of the optional activities around Lipata Island. The mountain range with a terrain overlooking China Sea, Tayabas Bay, and other islands like Dampalitan Island, Laguimanoc Bay.

Waiting for our chance to climb for the peak...


The Peak of Mt. Lipata

The actual peak of this mountain is reminding me of Pico de Loro because of it's tower although this cliff is just a 1/4 of Pico de Loro's beak, and this mountain is just considered to be minor, it is really hard to be on top, y0u must have have the skills and experience, because it can cause you severe injuries or maybe death. As Sir Migs, said for our batch maybe by the next time, their group will gonna put some ropes to help the climbers to go to top of this mountain.

Special Concerns:
Please do bring some sleeves/armguards if you want to climb this mountain because, some of the leaves, can cause you itcheness that will last up to few days. Bring also gloves for some minor stone wall cliff climb, and always don't forget to be safe and don't forget the LNT rule.
