I visited this area many a times. Every time, I find it very green and refreshing. You can go on top and see the Laguna lake and whole Los Banos town. You must see the magnetic hills road.

I always find it mesmerizing upon seeing mountains and volcanic peaks. Mount Makiling is no exception. Her beauty lies in its forest covers. Sometimes people would leave trash when they climb here, may I call on nature lovers and adventure seekers to help clean this...More

It is one of the mysterious mountain in the Philippines. You can see there the geothermal plant that serves as the electric power supply to the city of Laguna.
