Mt. Natib Dayhike (Bataan, 1,287+ MASL)

Sea of Clouds at the summit of Mt. Natib

Located just around 21 kilometers away from Mt. Mariveles, Mt. Natib is another great dayhike destination within the province of Bataan. Like Mt. Mariveles, Mt. Natib is also a dormant but potentially active volcano with an extensively weathered crater forming a caldera complex. Located in the northern portion of the Bataan Peninsula, the usual jump-off is at Brgy. Tala in Orani, Bataan, although hikers can also approach the summit from Sitio Kanawan in Morong, Bataan. Rising to about 1,287+ MASL, Mt. Natib can be safely and comfortably dayhiked from Orani, Bataan, usually taking around 4-5 hours to reach the summit.
