Seven-Peak Hike to Mt. Kalbo (Rizal, 660+ MASL)

At the summit of Mt. Kalbo

More than a month after my last hike and just a week after the Skechers half marathon run, I was finally able to hike again. A slight reprieve from the torrential rains brought about by tropical storm Karding (international name Yagi) and the southwest monsoon allowed me a small window of opportunity to finally quench my thirst for hiking. Mt. Kalbo, located in the same area as the Laiban Quatro trail and the Multi-tiered Laiban Falls in Brgy. Laiban, Tanay, Rizal offers a great opportunity to experience a multi-peak hike with a side trip to a waterfall, all in a relatively short and easy trail close to the cities of the Metro.
