The name of the mountain came from Talamitam Trees that were abundant in the place; however, it’s not that present now. It would take 1.5 to 3 hours for you to climb the peak, but the view is still worth it. Prepare your water and mountain wear as you trek to the summit.

1. Get a View from the Top

Mt. Talamitam is an easy trail for beginners; however, it may be a bit steep. It can get exhausting, though, as the sun goes high, but there are resting areas along the way.  Be prepared for the strain and the tiredness though, especially if you are a newbie. It’s better to exercise or train beforehand.

2. Take a dip in the river

After your steep climb, you take a dip in Talamitam river. It’s not that deep and is very calm so that you would enjoy the cold waters. There are shades nearby, so if you are not up for a swim, rest beside it.

3. Go Camping

Another alternative to a day hike is trekking in the afternoon and spending a night under the stars.  There’s an area at the foot of the summit where you can pitch your tent. The area is big, so you don’t have to worry about space and privacy.
