Norzagaray | Lioness Back and Rhino Rock (Itinerary and Expenses)


Lioness Rocker

One year and nine months -- that's how long it took me to climb again. 

Unbelievably so, because I love the outdoors. So even when our group was just composed of three, I did push through because I have been meaning to climb again. Lioness Back and Rhino Rock was a perfect start, its view and tricky challenges awakened the love for climbs, treks, day hikes and all. I mean, come on, just look at the view and it's just very near the Metro! :)

**Guide rates may differ per group. Ours was a small group of three so we gave a little more to our guide, Kenneth, given that he took good care of us during our climb. Climb was fast but trail is very steep especially to the Lioness Back. Leave a comment indicating your email address for his number.

Not much photos during the climb because I was scared for my cam. 
Now I'm kinda regretting doing so.

Oh, you know, I told you I loved the view here.


Climbing gloves
Extra shirt
Trail food
Bottled Water
Insect repellant

Tips: After climbing the Lioness Back and Rhino Rock, you can opt to go to Pinagrealan cave which is roughly 15-minute tricycle away from the jump-off point.

Hi M'am Elal,

Hi, they don't actually set the price. But I suggest around Php 400 per climb at around 3-4 pax :)

Pumunta kami last Saturday (May 14,2016) at di na allowed na umakyat sa lioness rock and rhino back. Pero kung gusto nyo ma-experience and rock climbing, possible pa naman hindi na nga lang sa nasabing rockies. You can also visit their caves (Pinagrealan and Gray).

Open na po ba any lioness rock and rhino back??
