Bits of Tips:

• Trail signs are all over the trail, chances of getting lost is very minimal. A climb without a guide is possible.
• The Papaya River is an ideal campsite, however, you may also want to set up your camp at Ridge campsites.
• The ridge campsite is really windy and cold, bring jackets, and there's no water source in the area.
• If planning a dayhike, make sure that you're back to jump-off before 7pm. The last trip from Mariveles back to Manila is at 7pm. If you failed to catch it, you can travel to Balanga City to catch the last trip to Manila at 9pm.
