Mountain in MABINI

Mt. Gulugod Baboy

Mt. Gulugod Baboy is located in Anilao, Mabini, Batangas with a difficulty of 2/9 and stands at 525 MASL. There are three peaks: Gulugod-Baboy, Gitna, and Pinagbanderahan.

Gulugod-Baboy means “pig’s spine”, so named because of the contours of the hills. “Gulod”, however, means hill; “pig’s hill” can also depict the pastoral scene of the mountain. You would normal encounter cows, goats, and in the past, pigs, as you trek through the mountain.

For its part, Pinagbanderahan has a historical background. It can be translated, “Where the flag was hoisted”, and it commemorates the crash landing of the Japanese in early 1942. In the heat of World War II, Japanese airmen had a mishap and crash landed in the slopes of Gulugod-Baboy. To celebrate their survival, they planted a flag in the summit. Since then, locals called it “Pinagbanderahan”.
