Summer Climb

At 2954 meters, Mount Apo is the highest mountain in the Philippines. This majestic peak is one of the country’s most popular climbing destinations.

Several trails lead to the summit, coming from North Cotabato and Davao provinces. An average hike requires 2-4 days. Various sights include Lake Venado, one of the highest lakes in the Philippines, and the old crater of Mt. Apo near its summit.  The mountain may be climbed year-round. Some trails are very easy that’s why some climbers bring their children with them.

We started climbing Mount Apo with our daughter in the year 2003 when she was still 4 years old.
