Popular Mountain for Hiking

Mount Apo, Davao del Sur

 

For the Bagobo tribes of Mindanao, “Apo” means grandfather. With a height of 2954 meters, Mount Apo is the highest mountain in the country. Situated in Davao del Sur, it is a dormant volcano, with three major peaks and a wide volcanic crater containing the crystal clear Lake Venado. Climbing Mount Apo requires hiking through thick mossy forests, steep trails and most notably, an endless trek up giant rock boulders below the mountain’s summit. Sulphur vents and deposits are silent reminders of the volcanic past deep under Mount Apo. The mountain is home to several species of plants and animals, including the beautiful, but nearly extinct Philippine Monkey-eating Eagle.

 

How to get there: Fly to Davao City then hire a jeepney for the cities of Digos of Kidapawan.

 


Travel Quotes:

Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen. Benjamin Disraeli

I have wandered all my life, and I have also traveled; the difference between the two being this, that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment. Hilaire Belloc
