The said rock was shaped like a large mortar used by the locals to unhusk rice which is locally referred to as lusong . Sadly, this rock is now covered with vegetation and is now impossible to see.

Mt. Manabu Revisited 2021

I first hiked Mt. Manabu with my cousins last 2019 . For those unfamiliar with Mt. Manabu , it's a mountain located in Sto. Tomas Batangas. Once known as Pagligawan or a place to get lost, the name Manabu came from the abbreviated word MAtaas NA BUndok which means "tall mountain". The mountain stands 760 meters tall and can easily be hiked in a day. Mt. Manabu Mt. Manabu Details: Height: 760 MASL Jump-off point : Brgy. Sta. Cruz, Santo Tomas, Batangas Mt. Manabu is a perfect hiking destination for beginners and for those who are "complexion conscious" as the mountain's dense foliage offers shade throughout much of the hike. Aside from that, the ascent is gradual with several "stations" where hikers can rest, eat, and even drink the most expensive coffee in the market -civet coffee. Mt.
