To enter the Isarog National Park you have to pay a fee of 50 Pesos as a foreigner. Fees for Filipino are just 20 Pesos. That's not fair and racism, but whatever. Around the Mt. Isarog is the largest area of tropical forest in the Philippines and the nature is breathtaking beautiful. You need a hike up to the summit... More

You can parc at the entrance, put your name in the guestbook and pay a fee from about 10 pesos for youngsters until 40 pesos for adults. Visit the Malabsay... More

While its a little bit out of Naga, and a bit scary on the motorbike getting there (part of the road was under construction at the time of our visit), it is worth the trip. Beautiful scenery, lush green trees and areas, and home to Malabsay falls. If you have the afternoon and love hiking/bush walking - then this is... More

If you are using the Lonely Planet guide, you need to know that Kadlagan Outdoor no longer offer the two hiking packages listed on page 170 (May 2015 12th edition). The park officials now require one to use one of their licensed guides. Kadlagan can arrange for your permit, rent gear, and offer advice. Keep in mind the Kadlagan Outdoor... More

Isarog is Located in Camarines Sur. It is considered as Southern Luzon’s highest forested peak. Trail leads to six campsites situated at various elevations. Going... More

Went here a couple of days ago. No difficulty getting here, jeepney from centre of naga, soon filled up, nice and cheap, left the park area at 4:30ish but there were many many motorbikes about late afternoon and I cannot imagine there would be any difficulty getting a ride back if you did miss the last jeepney (all be it...

Had a great time at the park. Wished I had had more time to explore the area but the 3/4 hours that we were there was awesome. Malabsay Falls was beautiful. It was a bit hot even for a Texan but was well worth it. Next time I'll make sure I have more time for exploring.

Naga is not set up for foreign tourism. When I asked my hotel about getting to Mt. Isarog, directions began with a deep sigh. Taxis do not like to go out there because they cannot get a return fare, so they will charge a double fare 600P. The only public option is the jeepney, but it only goes when its... More

It is well worth a visit if you are in the area. On the way up, you will be rewarded with a magnificent view of the valley between two mountains aside from the waterfall at the park. people do go to have a picnic by the first falls although it is quite a walk. My only beef is that they... More
