The Parrot’s Peak in Mt. Pico de Loro
Hiking and trekking up to a great mountain top is sure an extremely fun thing to do. This is especially true if you’re with your good old buddies. It’s also a definite plus if you’re going up a mountain with a jaw-dropping view even if you’re still not on top. If you’re a mountain climbing enthusiast and you’re looking for some kind of adventure then I suggest you might want to try Mt. Pico de Loro in the Philippines.
Mt. Pico de Loro has two starting points; one is located at Ternate, Cavite and the other at Nasugbu, Batangas. The name of the mountain was based on its formation which shows like a loro or parrot. This mountain is shaped like a giant stone buried to the ground with a whopping height of 664 m. It has two summits which makes it an interesting mountain to climb. What’s amazing about it is its steepness. It’s so steep that it requires great caution and safety when climbing it.
The Parrot’s Beak is the main attraction and the most dangerous part of the climb. Though it may seem difficult to climb but as the saying “there’s always a rainbow after the rain” goes, the reward is very, very fruitful. The view on top is breathtaking. You will get a great outlook of the horizon once you are on top. It will feel like you’re on top of the world as you feel the gentle breeze and the lovely kiss of the sun. During rainy days, instead of getting sun-kissed, you’ll experience baby raindrops tickling your skin.
Climbing Mt. Pico de Loro will be a great add on to your bucket list. It will be a once in a lifetime experience that you will surely never, never forget. What are you waiting for? Grab your hiking stuff and head to the peak of the parrot’s beak!
