Tarak Ridge or Mariveles Climbing Notes
Sherwin Basi from PHILIPPINES writes:
It would take four to six hours endurance trekking to the peak(depending on the trekker)and 3-4 hours going down. 2-3 days if there would be camping at the Papaya River or at the ridge. The trail starts by the road in Alas-asin, Mariveles, Bataan. At the Cogon hill area, there will be a fork on the trail. The left is the Panikian trail and the right is the Papaya trail which leads to Papaya river camping site(half-way). After Papaya river, steep climbing will follow for 1.5 to 2.5 hours(depending on the trekker). A climb on a grassy slope with lose rocks will follow and lead to Tarak ridge. Strong winds should be expected on the ridge but there's a base camp with trees for cover. At the ridge, you may assault the peaks which is another steep climb. The climb is on an open grassy slope. Care is a must to avoid fall to the deep sides of the ridge. Once on top, the view is very very good.
