Stress? Burn out due to too much work? Wanted to have an out of town relaxation but don’t want to travel too far? My solution… a hike at Batulao plus a side trip at Caleruega 🙂Caleruega is found in Barrio Kaylaway, Batulao in the town of Nasugbu. It is just across the boundary of Cavite and Batangas. And around 15 to 20 minutes drive from Tagaytay City. A place surrounded with exquisite trees and flowers, a perfect place for self-renewal and soul searching.
The minimal entrance fee is worth with a fantastic vista of Mount Batulao and the fertile sloping hummocks of Tuy and Nasugbu. Strolling the compound exposes you to flowers, shrubs, trees, butterflies and birds with the cool breeze, which are nothing less than stimulating.
Here are some of the plants, flowers from the Botanical garden. They are so beautiful, unfortunately I cannot name them 😀 enjoy browsing.

HOW TO GET TO CALERUEGA
Caleruega is accessible from Tagaytay. If you are coming from Manila, take the South Luzon Express Way (SLEX) and exit to Sta. Rosa going to Tagaytay. From Tagaytay Circle take the route going to Nasugbu Batangas. Upon reaching the arch saying Welcome to Nasugbu, drive for another 2 minutes to the entrance of Evercrest Golf Course. Turn left to enter Evercrest and drive straight ahead. Upon reaching a fork, you will see a sign saying, “To Caleruega” . Turn right and drive down a bumpy road. At the end of the road is Caleruega.
