Hiking Mt. Maynuba

Our adventurous feet bring us to Barangay Cayabu which is located in the mountainous municipality of Tanay, Rizal. Today, we'll be hiking Mt. Maynuba which is one of the best places to view the scenic Sierra Madre mountain range, and if you're lucky, the breathtaking sea of clouds. The mountain is also called Mt. Maynobaby some.
Mt. Maynuba Details: Mt. Maynuba is the collective name for the three peaks of one of the mountains in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. These peaks are referred to by the guides as Peak 1, 2, and 3. Peak 1 stands 610 MASL, Peak 2 (the most famous of the three peaks) stands 662 MASL, and Peak 3 (the highest) is 728 MASL. 

According to our guide, Mt. Maynuba got its name from "Manunuba ng Isda" which was one of the main livelihoods of the locals.

Mt. Maynuba is often partnered with the smaller Mt. Cayabu and the 8 Wonder Falls (yup, you read that right) of Tanay for what is dubbed the "Cayabu-Maynuba Loop + 8 Wonder Falls"…

My cousins and I got to hike this mountain last July as part of the "Cayabu-Maynuba Loop". At some point, we kind of underestimated this minor hike due to the reviews that we read. Yes, it was a very easy hike but we did not take into consideration that it rained hard days prior to our ascent. We got bogged down by the now muddy trail a…
