Batangas Islands Philippines
Mountain Climbing / Volcano Trekking
One of the highest mountains in Batangas, Mt. Maculot has always been a favorite among mountaineers and trekkers alike. The name of the place was derived from “kulot,” meaning kinky, in reference the kinky hair of the people who lived in the mountains.
The lowest volcano in the world is surrounded by a lake. It is accessible by boat from at least seven towns surrounding the lake. Tour agencies as well as some Tagaytay resorts offer tour packages to the lake. Jump-off point is Agoncillo, Batangas.
Central Philippine Cuisine
Bicol is noted for its gastronomic appetite for the fiery or chili-hot dishes. Perhaps the most well-known Bicolano dish is the very spicy Bicol express. The region is also the well-known home of natong also known as laing or pinangat (a pork or fish stew in taro leaves).
