Mt. Balagbag

Mount Balagbag derived its name from the tagalog word pabalagbag which means “in horizontal position”. Since it is located at Barangay San Isidro which is also situated in between Bulacan and Rizal, Mount Balagbag has been known by the common trail at Rizal.

Now, the City of San Jose del Monte offers a new exciting experience by hiking the newly discovered trail—the Dumagat Trail. The City Tourism has trained the Dumagat Tribe as tour guides to guide new hikers and tourists who may need company to their very own Dumagat Trail that has been the pathway for their trading.

With the difficulty of 4 out of 9, the Dumagat Trail gives a nature experience of the Dumagats natural habitat in the City of San Jose del Monte. Adventure lovers will have spontaneous nature experience in 3-4 hours trekking.
