    If I recall right, it's about 30 mins or less. However, I'm not sure, as I didn't notice it, if there are public jeepneys or tricycle that go up to Mt. Samat. Dambana is about 10kms from the national highway.

    from the city to the intersection its more or less 10km and takes just a few breaths. there are jeeps or minibuses going to bagac or morong from the transport terminal so hop on any one of them. there is no direct commute to the cross.

    i walked(alone) the upward road from the highway intersection and it is about 7km of cool foresty road. more tiring nearer the dambana as the road becomes steeper. there are shortcuts too (e.g., you climb the hill from side of the road and voila you are on the road again) instead of zigzagging. see this map:
    maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&t...
    that what i walked.

    there are habal-habal rides waiting at the highway intersection though if you want to zoom up. no jeeps. just habalhabal. same thing from up there. cant remember how much that was and i only took the downward(return) run. probably P50 or therearounds.
