Conquering Mt. Tapyas

I am continuing my posts on some great vacation spots I have recently been to, in the hope that you will be inspired to fill your piggy banks, pack your things, explore the Philippines, and commune with nature. Last month, I featured my trip to Boracay via the roll-on roll-off system. Today, I will be taking you to Mt. Tapyas, one of the most visited spots in the town of Coron in Palawan.

Mt. Tapyas is one of the mountains in Busuanga. It is easy to get to the start of its trail. When you are in Coron, all you have to do is ride a tricycle and ask the driver to take you to Mt. Tapyas. It will cost you only 8 pesos. The jump-off point to the mountain is a flight of steps beside a basketball court.

Now, the hard part hehehe. You have to climb 700 plus concrete stairs to get to the summit. Kaya mag-stretching muna bago umakyat, okay? 🙂 It is actually a good cardio exercise hehehe. But don’t you worry, there are shaded stops where you can rest.

Pagdating sa itaas, sulit lahat ng pagod ninyo. On Mt. Tapyas’ summit sits a very spacious view deck which offers a stunning view of Coron as well as other nearby islands.

The summit of Mt. Tapyas is also home to a big cross which stands more than 2,000 feet above sea level.

On the other side of the mountain is a sprawling grassy and hilly area. Masarap maglakad-lakad at magpa-picture 🙂

Mt. Tapyas offers a spectacular view of sunrise and sunset in Coron. So the best time to go there is before sunrise or before sunset. We went there in the morning. Pero medyo na-late konti ang akyat namin so when we got to its peak, hindi na masyadong kita ang kagandahan ng sunrise. Remember to bring water and wear something light and comfortable.

(On my next posts, I will explore more of Coron.)

    Yes, Jayvie, breathtaking talaga dyan! Lalo na kung makita mo pa ang ibang part ng Coron. Will post about them soon.

  17. Coron is such a beautiful place. Lots of islands and islets to visit, each and every one of them just like paradise. By the way, I’ll be visiting Northern Samar via Catarman soon, I’m at a lost where to stay, where to go and what to do. I’ve read your blogs already, but hope you can give me more suggestions. It’s really tricky to travel with a young one at tow, but I want to explore the Philippines with him since he loves beaches. You have a great site by the way. ^^

  18. Hi Maui, yes, I agree, talagang maganda sa Coron. I’d love to visit the place again.

    Will email you regarding your inquiries on Biri.

Feel free to comment. You share, I share. We both learn. It's all good.
