Trip Planner: Asia / Philippines / Mimaropa / Palawan Province / Busuanga Island / Coron / Mt Tapyas
A dramatic backdrop to a small coastal town, Mt Tapyas serves as a popular viewpoint and offers sweeping panoramas over the surrounding islands. Follow the signs from town and begin the trek up the marked pathways, which feature paved stairways and trails. Climb the approximately 700 steps to the top and you'll find the mountain's summit accented by a giant metal cross. From there, you' can enjoy unobstructed views of the island, the bay, and the rugged coastline, dense with jungle vegetation.

700 trin, men så får man også en fantastisk udsigt over Coron Bay, fantastisk sted at opleve de smukke solnedgange på Filippinerne. more »700 steps, but then you also get a great view of Coron Bay, great place to experience the beautiful sunsets in the Philippines.
Went hiking at around 5:30 AM. We opted to take the sunrise rather than the usual sunset in Tapyas.Though both period are equally beautiful.Its about 700 steps to the top but there are resting areas.Locals normally jog to and from the mountain without a fuss.If you are not into so much physical activity and planning to hike it, please take precautionary measures.It does not have a mini store at the top so better bring your own water jug and of course your camera.
Steep climb but once you conquered this, you'll feel like a champion, looking over Coron and trying to grasp the beauty of life. The view is awesome, especially around sunset. You'll share the view with a hundred other people, but the platform is big enough to guarantee a proper spot. Water is sold on the stairs but not at the top, so plan accordingly.
