There are many beautiful mountains including volcanoes in the Philippines, this tallest mountain in the archipelago looks horrible from afar. As one nears its foot and starts trekking, trash abound along the way. Trees are also cut as firewood. Government and private stakeholders should not only promote and promote; market and market but most imperative to communicate responsible, ethical, sustainable... More

Love looking at Mt Apo and how if you keep watching, it slowly changes colours. When the clouds shroud it, it looks quite awe-inspiring, if not mystical, and takes you to another world. Like Bora Bora, this Mountain is simply Majestic.

I was wondering why it was called Mt. Apo, which sound more masculine, instead of Mt. Christine or Mt. Sarah as more fitting name for that highest , beautiful and majestic mountain with a beautiful sleeping beauty lady formation around the city of Davao, with the head, neckline and with two breasts line formation, which could be clearly outline in...

I have not climbed Mount Apo but I see the peak every morning from our balcony. If it is not shrouded by clouds, it is a glorious sight to behold. The closest I have been to it is going to Eden Nature Park on the next mountain Mount Talomo. My close friends have joined treks up the Mount Apo as... More

Hiking Mount Apo is like hiking to another world, with the jungle terrain, followed by climbing up boulders, followed by the summit where clouds constantly drift right towards you and engulf you. I hiked here over holy week when the fire started, although I never saw anything. Unfortunately, the Department of Environmental whatever of the Philippines thinks that it's their... More

I was privileged, along with Eastern Mountaineering Society, to hike it days before irresponsible hikers started a fire in the summit :( I hope every camper/hiker/tourist/traveler be not too selfish and irresponsible, and realize the consequences of his/her actions. Other info: The trail we took was Mandarangan-Magpet. Our registration was handled by Charlesons Travel and Tours, they were really accommodating,... More

Our friends who live on their boat on Samal Island acted as our tour guides to get us up to the Mountain visitation center. The activities were organized and appeared save. I'd never seen bicycle riding on a high wire as an attraction before! The varied plant life was interesting. The tour guide did a good job of explaining the... More

It was a dream to stand atop the highest mountain in the Philippines, and the experience did not disappoint! We arrived in Davao City, and took vans to reach the town of Kapatagan, our jump-off point. This trip took about 5-6 hours. We then transferred to trucks (the roads were rough) to get to the village closes to the mountain;... More
