Tarak Ridge: Itinerary and Budget for Mt. Mariveles Climb


Itinerary update as of May 31, 2015.

Mt. Mariveles
1130+ MASL, Major Climb
Difficulty: 4/9 Trail Class: 3

Things to Consider in Planning:
* Expertise/Climb Experience of Joiners
* Weather

Make sure to consider these things since Mt. Mariveles is a major climb; definitely, this is not advisable for first-timers. The trail to Tarak Ridge is very steep, one should go on 4x4 (on both hands and feet while climbing). Also, it is VERY IMPORTANT to check the weather updates before and on the date of the climb. Camping at Tarak Ridge is not advisable when it is raining.

* Guide is not really needed. Minimal chances of getting lost.
* If camping at the ridge, make sure to bring sufficient amount of water. There is no water source at the ridge. The only water source in Mt. Mariveles is the Papaya River.
* If all bus to Cubao is full, another option is to take a mini-bus to Balanga. At Balanga, there are 2 bus terminals bound for Manila - Genesis and Bataan Transit.
* If camping at the ridge, make sure to bring extra pegs and jackets. The wind at the ridge is very strong.
* Most ideal campsite is at the Papaya River.

  56. If you are going to climb Tarak, be sure you have good hiking shoes. It is VERY SLIPPERY when it’s raining or after the rain, either you skip it as it is risky if you only have a few hiking experience (Trust me I've climb Tarak more than 10 times, twice raining) Guide is not necessary but I suggest you get 1 if you have a large group. Camping in papaya river gives you unlimited water and a chance of seeing fireflies roaming the area. But for me, its still better to camp in the ridge. Sunset and sunrise in the ridge is a spectacular view. December and January gives a good probability of seeing a sea of clouds, its dissolves quickly so be sure to wake up at dawn. Be sure you have a strong tent, the wind in the ridge is very strong and its really cold at night. Trekking Tarak Ridge at night should be done only if you have a guide or really know the trail.

    You can also camp near the summit it can at least fit 2 dome tents but its not really advisable.

    Buko juice in Nanay Cording house is available on Sundays only. Its really good!
