Mt. Ayngat Day Hike Guide with Asmican Falls - Tanay Rizal

A summit where you can experience an "EDSA-like-traffic": Mt. Ayngat. Kidding aside, this mountain good for beginners is open to public along side with it's popular siblings, Maynoba and Cayabu circa 2016.

These summits boast high probability of 'Sea of Clouds' which everyone is clamoring for these days. With that in mind, the easy 1-2 hours hike, spacious summit with a tear drop bamboo-structure, many have set their eyes on Mt. Ayngat for that Instagrammable picture.

While waiting for the sun rise, you can do Night Shots where the stars are shining shimmering. haha

It  pays to be the first on the Summit of Mt. Ayngat

To be first on the summit you need to:

1. Arrive at the Barangay Cayabu around 2-3AM. You can choose to Package 3 or 4, but I suggest to skip the 8 waterfalls experience (Package 4) if its summer time as there will be no water on these falls.

2. Be prepared for continuous ascend all throughout the trail going to the summit. Do some cardio beforehand. 

3. DO NOT STOP hahah just kidding. If there are groups ahead, try to advance. This will save you time waiting at the summit since there will be minimum of 15 groups on the summit ranging from 5 pax to as many as 60 pax per group! Good thing there are timers at the summit's tear drop to notify the people to hasten their photo op. 25 seconds per person. The start time for the groups to be entertained on the bamboo-structure is around 6:00 AM - 6:30 AM. It varies though on the sun rise and the visibility of the sea of clouds.
