Climb the approximately 700 steps to the top and you'll find the mountain's summit accented by a giant metal cross.

Mt Tapyas Reviews
718 marches à monter, prenez de l'eau car ça cogne en plein soleil ! Il y a plusieurs espaces pour se reposer avant d'arriver en haut. Il nous a fallu environ 20 minutes pour y arriver. Entrée libre. ... more »718 steps to climb, take water because it hits in the sun! There are several spaces to rest before you get to the top. It took us about 20 minutes to get there. Free entrance. The view is worth seeing, we see all Coron and its islands, it's beautiful! Essential if you go through Coron!
First have hardship to then enjoy a magnificent view over Coron. It is a hike of 700 steps. But worth it. Bring water. And try to get there for the sunset. more »
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.
