My officemates and I made a trip to Mt. Samat last June 01 (Saturday). It is located in Pilar Province of Bataan. The Mt. Samat Cross of 302 feet is what it is famous for, but before you reach the top of the cross through elevator, you need to pass through several stairs.
We left Angeles City a little after 8am and reached our destination after 9am. I did not expect Mt. Samat to be that beautiful. I commend those who takes care of the place and transformed it completely to a tourist spot, very well maintained but the comfort rooms need major improvement, for the sake of the visitors especially foreigners who are curious to see the mountain.
The trip was exhausting but the feeling to be on the peak of the Mt. Samat Cross will make you forget the tiredness and scorching heat of the sun. The air coming from the windows is so cool. You will appreciate the beauty of nature when you look down and all you see is a tidy landscape and greeny green grass and trees.
Afterwards, we went to Harbor point for our late lunch slash afternoon snack.
I'll never forget our trip to Mt. Samat especially the unexpected and horrifying fainting of one of our colleagues while on the second part of the stairs going up. We talked and laughed about it on our way home.
Overall, the trip was memorable and hilarious.
