Bike and Trek Mount Banahaw
Two sports, two days
Bike and trek Mount Banahaw in Dolores, Quezon. Spend your weekend on a mountain bike ride in one of the Philippines old and historical towns – San Pablo, Laguna. Then trek around Bangkong Kahoy, Dolores Quezon. These are just two towns in South Luzon that a couple or a group of young at hearts can challenge themselves to do two sports (mountain biking and trekking) leisurely one after the other.
And the best is yet to be revealed – lunch on a bamboo raft on Pandin Lake and experience organic produce offered by Bangkong Kahoy. It is a valley which is situated in a ridge overlooking Mount Banahaw and Mount Cristobal.

Bike and Trek Mount Banahaw Itinerary
Day 1 – Spend a day of mountain biking through fast single tracks with picturesque views of Mount Cristobal, a mountain that is also known as the “Devil’s Mountain”. Then we will take you to one of the Seven Lakes of San Pablo, Laguna – the Lake Pandin. The lunch is served on a bamboo raft while being pulled towards the other side of the lake. One can jump to the water and enjoy the lake’s cold water. We will then travel by car to the trail head of Bangkong Kahoy (Wooden Bench) Valley and bike our way up some 650 masl (meters above sea levels) and stay there for the night.
Day 2 - A trek to the summit of Mount Banahaw will complete our bike and trek tour. Many supernatural beliefs have been passed from one generation to another about this mysterious mountain. Mount Banahaw is considered as a holy mountain by the locals of Quezon and by different mountaineers from all over the Philippines.
