“Mount Yangbew : A 30-45 Minutes Hike!”

Before, I thought hiking would be hard and boring but I was wrong!. Because since the day that I tried hiking, I have come to love and enjoy it. Now, I often encourage my friends to go for a hike and I always feel like “TO LOOK FOR ANOTHER MOUNTAIN” as our next hiking destination.

So just after the holidays, we hiked the one of the famous mountains in Benguet which they named as Mount Yangbew. We started the hike at 1:30 pm and we paid 30 pesos per head to the locals who were there at Yangbew as our environmental fee.

How can I describe the Hike?

The hike going to this mountain is not hard and it is an uphill hike throughout . So we reached the summit after 45 minutes. They have horse for rent. For me, this mountain is perfect for warm up if you wan’t to hike Mount Ulap.( Click here to view our Mount Ulap hike.)purple-flowers-border-6be6d978e3c631d2d011f0c6b7f1cb0615871670_1525296767497843_8424025909690049600_n (1).jpgMount Yangbew is located at Barangay Tawang in La Trinidad and has become one of the favorite hiking destinations due to its proximity to Baguio City. This is a grassy mountain over looking La Trinidad and is the best spot for campers, photographers, nature lovers and is also a perfect place for those people who loves chasing the sun.

According to some, they named this as Jumbo or Jambo because this mountain was used by the American Boy Scouts for the National Scout Jamboree. I’ve heard several times that the name of this mountain is either JUMBO, JAMBO, YANGBEW and YANGBO. But it has been given last year that the official name of this mountain is “MOUNT YANGBEW” to avoid confusion.15977521_1525291444165042_7983551106746297653_nThe 5:30 pm scenery!

HOW TO GET HERE?

If you’re from Baguio, you can take a La Trinidad jeepney at Rizal park or below Centermall and tell the driver to drop you off at Pines Park km.4. Then at Pines Park, take a jeepney going to Tawang and tell the driver that you’re going to Mount Yangbew for them to know. From the city,  it takes 30 -45 minutes to get to Barangay Tawang.

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!

Till then,

  2. Wonderful! I am here in Baguio and after spending two weeks exploring the city, I decided to go hiking. I am reading all your hiking experiences because this week, I will hike all the mountains you’ve been to as a challenge for my physical and spiritual training. Thank you for these informative blog posts. 🙂
