Mount Cristobal: The Devil's Mountain

Mount Cristobal (or Mount San Cristobal), also called the Devil's Mountain, is one of the most popular mountains that surround Laguna. It is called as such because it lies right beside its opposite -- the Holy Mountain, Mount Banahaw.

Like any mountain in the province, Mount Cristobal is said to be haunted by nature spirits and supernatural elements. I cannot say there is none -- even those who reside at the heart of the very mountain fear these "creatures". Those who are said to disrespect the mountain will be met with misfortune. My only advice is that any traveler must take measures to respect and honor every place he visits so as to prevent any natural or unnatural disasters.
