Puting Bato Peak, Antipolo
One of my favorite hiking spot here in province of Rizal actually my 4th time. Its a 1 hour trekking traverse and best time to go apparently in morning exercise walking and the award waiting on the top. Every step and sweat worth because of the scenic view of Antipolo Hills.
Its was a tourist spot here in Antipolo City especially in Holy Week, since it has a red cross on the top (apparently the Red Cross replaced a Green Flag) which could be seen in the whole barangay of San Luis where the peak located.
They named this as ‘Puting Bato Peak’ since the rock white formation appeared. The peak approximately 120+ feet mountain and we can see the beautiful white rock formation on the top. You will see the scenic view of other mountain and best way to watch sunrise&sunset. This place is best for people looking for relaxation and peace.
