Cari amici, oggi voglio parlarvi del monte Batulao, la montagna preferita dai principianti del  trekking e dell’alpinismo nelle Filippine. Dalla vetta che ha un’insolita cresta a forma di gorilla, si apre uno scenario affascinante fatto di formazioni rocciose e sentieri verdi. Dall’alto si può ammirare la città di Batangas. E’ un’arrampicata facile, che coinvolge anche le famiglie con bambini. Provate!
