Explore Mt. Marami in Cavite

The adventure going to Mt. Marami is just like how you conquer other mountains. Walk and walk on muddy and rocky trails like no ending. And sometimes you need to climb-up by stretching your both legs widely to reach the mountain's peak.

Mt. Marami is being compared to Mt. Pico De Loro for having a massive and monumental composite of rocky pillars/towers. . The mountain has also closer pillar called the ‘Silyang Bato’. The name ‘Marami’ is from a literal Filipino word “marami” (many) that is indeed of many rocks visible on the structure of the mountain. The summit offers a panorama of the Maragondon mountains, including Pico de Loro, Mt. Mariveles, and even Mt. Banahaw.

Mt. Marami is one of the accessible mountains in Maragondon, Cavite .But the jump-off point is in Brgy. Ramirez in Magallanes,Cavite. It is an easy climb especially for beginners taking 4-6 hours trekking to reach the summit.

How to get there!

From Manila, you can drive or take a bus going to Naic Cavite. It will only take 3- hour drive. When you get to Naic, take a jeepney going to Magallanes. Brgy. Ramirez is just 10 minutes away from the town proper. The journey to the peak of the mountain starts at Brgy.Councilor Punongbayan's house.

There are many routes going up the summit. Prepare on the Nuestra Senora trail and Carabao trail or  Talahib trail. Just to reminder, hire a local to act as guide because the trails are very confusing.

Wear protective clothing because some of the plants and grasses are irritating to the skin especially if you are in the Talahib trail. Don't forget also to put sunblock on your skin for protection from direct heat of the sun.

The best time to go Mt. Marami is during Summer time. It is severely muddy when wet and you don’t want  your shoes become too dirty (lol). The cool  and exciting part on this adventure is passing on two rivers- 'Ilog na Kayrayag' and 'Bangkaan River.'

At the summit, enjoy the cool wind while looking the 360-degree view of Batangas, Magallanes, Maragondon, Ternate, and mountains including including Pico de Loro, Mt. Mariveles, and even Mt. Banahaw
