The Breathtaking View from Mount Marami
Mount Marami is one of many spectacular mountains that are accessible in the province of Cavite. The mountain lies in the town of Maragondon, and it is quite a sight. It has a unique structure made up of rocky, gray pillars with sparse greenery at its top. The jump-off point for hikers and mountain climbers to the foot of the mountain is in Barangay Ramirez in Magallanes, Cavite.
The name of the mountain, Mt. Marami, is derived from the Filipino word "marami" which means "many," which would most likely refer to the many rock formations that make up this truly unique mountain.
One can go up the mountain through several trails but hiring guides are recommended as paths can get confusing. The way up the mountain can take several hours but the trek will be worth it when one gets a view from its peak that showcases a breathtaking view of the town including the other mountains and the other features of the province.
