Loved Mt. Apo. My climb of the year! (December 10-12, 2022) I want to go back to this mountain in the future and take the same trail again which is the Sta Cruz Trail (circuit). At the time of our hike was amazing due to nice weather. Thank you Lord for the clearing. The organizers (i-Trekkers) were very accommodating and caring to us and they'd made us laugh all the time. Overall, it was fun and unforgettable experience in hiking Mt. Apo. 🧡❤️

Once of a lifetime experience.Although being a novice climber, the guide and porter are always helpful and patient with us all throughout the journey.I recommend to visit the local tourism office if you are planning to go.

Mt. Apo is one of the popular hiking areas in Mindanao. This is some of the best hikes to check out in the Davao region natural park:

As the best hiking tour in the Philippines, Mount Apo is a must-hike for all the peak packer among us. The Explore Mt.Apo is accessible via a number of different trails, though most hikers will take a maximum of 5 days to complete the steps.

For the best part, Mount Apo is not ordinary mountain, though hiring a local guide to help you get permits and arrange transportation is the best idea. However, although the Explore Mt.Apo local guide is practically professional climber expert, it is top hiked between the months of March and May when the weather is generally much more stable.
