Mt. Banoi Exploration

SPI Mountaineering Club
March 19-20, 2011
by lakwatserong tatay

For the month of March, our group destination is the exploration of Mt. Banoi, located at Brgy. Balaybay, Lobo, Batangas. The place is not a national park and the mountains are used as farmlands and grazing lands. Houses are also situated along the trails and various parts of the mountain. The main marker and distinct description of Mt. Banoi are its telecommunications antennas nestled atop one of the peaks. In fact, the campsite itself can be established at one of the facilities of Smart Communications, which is a fenced area with container vans used as quarters and equipment rooms.

The views on the other hand are spectacular, overlooking the Bay of Batangas and the surrounding provinces and nearby islands. The hike is also pleasant, and though exposed, winds usually make the hike pleasant. Along the route, there is a river and a small waterfall where you can take a refreshing bath.
