Bus from Manila to Anilao
Take any Batangas City bound bus and get off at Bauan Diversion (fare is around 130 PHP). We took bus at Jac Liner in Buendia near LRT. From Bauan Diversion, you can take a jeepney going to Mabini (that will cost around 30 PHP) and tell the driver to drop you at the corner going to Philpan Dive Resort in Anilao. From there, you can take a tricycle going to Philpan (100 PHP/tricycle), which is the jump-off point. Alternatively, if you are about 10 or above members in the group you may opt to charter a jeepney (1,200 PHP) from Bauan diversion going to the jump-off point to avoid transferring from one jeepney to another. Across Philpan resort, you will see a cemented path going up, this is the start of the hike. Don’t forget to register first (20PHP).
