This is a nice hike. It starts off very steep but eases up the higher you get. You can’t beat the view at the top. Bring water and wear good shoes and you’ll be ok!

The trail is not well maintained. For most of the trail we found ourselves wishing we had a machete. (!) Prepare to hike through grass and other foliage 4-5 feet high on a path about 6 inches wide. Despite the high grass, it is a very sunny trail on a very hot island. So take plenty of water. If I were to do this hike again I would freeze a couple of bottles of water beforehand. Within 15 minutes the water is air temperature which means it is above 90F (32C). This is not too helpful if you need to cool down! I got pretty overheated pretty quickly. But the frozen water would have melted quickly enough to provide us with cool water to help cool off. Also helpful would be appropriate attire. There is a lot of cut grass that can scratch up your legs and arms. And as mentioned above you will be in contact with a lot of the foliage. So we were advised to wear long pants. Good advice, but all we had were jeans. This contributed to overheating. Light weight pants made for jungle hiking would be worth the investment on this trail. There are a few spider webs and so forth, some complete with large spiders, but not a lot of flying bugs. We did not use bug spray and did not need it. But then we are from Minnesota which has about 5497 times more mosquitos than anywhere I have ever hiked (which is a fairly extensive list of locations). It truly feels like a jungle hike, though, which made for an interesting experience. Makes you really appreciate the military who have had to fight for their lives in such environments.

Went on a short walk after lunch. This roadside spot is varying difficulty, depending where you go. I would highly recommend this very scenic spot for photos. Saw a lot of folks taking selfies, as this spot provides a tremendous background for portraiture

We attempted the trek with our adult children and were blessed with a local host who drove us all the way to the area of the highway where a signpost indicated the starting point. We were forewarned that the slopes could be slippery in the rainy season and though it had not rained that much and it was sunny when we set out, the rest of the family didn't trust this accident prone senior citizen to trek all the way. When we got to a nicely shaded clearing where we had an excellent vantage point of mountain & sea, it was decided that the senior members wait it out under the trees while they finished the trek. Even at that elevation, the mobile signal was good so they were able to keep us posted of their progress and when they reached the peak, we were pretty aware and could make out the four figures from afar. Just about the time they had to make their way down to where we were waiting, a thick fog was visibly creeping to the peak. In retrospect, they agreed we could have made the trek all the way although we would have dragged their pace. Nonetheless, we didn't regret going to this site. We met a couple of other Trekkers on their way down. The crosses along the way, helped to make out the trail without much difficulty without a guide. Accordingly, every Holy Week, it is like a pilgrimage site with devotees walking up following the stations of the cross all the way up to Mount Jumulong Manglo. Even at our halfway perch, the breeze was so relaxing and the views nothing less than spectacular!

So, the trail to Mt Lam Lam forks near the top. The left fork takes you to Mt Lam Lam and the right fork takes you to Mt Jumullong Manglo (where the crosses are). My two daughters (15 & 8) and I hiked up to MJM. The hike was pretty easy, about 30-45 minutes. A little sword grass here and there. At the top though, what a view! Nice and windy too! A good time to go would be sunset. You can see Fena Lake too. Loved it and we will do it again!
