Beautiful but sometimes hard hike in preserved nature. Was foggy at the time so cooler. Hope they can protect that place

A very rain forest environment - we didn't go to the top - would have impeded dive time, but it was so high that most days there was cloud cover. Returning to the island from dive trips, it was apparent by the slope falling away from the mountain that Negros is a volcanic island. I don't know if there is... More

Visited here once few years ago with no preparations, no bags, no extra shirts, not even in shoes. Just me and my 2 friends, and the lovely green views. Although we never reach the peak, the views of the Tanon Strait is awesome.

We were lost for the better part of one day, we did a night trek, we used ropes and scaled 40 degree inclines all that for two days and this was my first mountain trek. Blame it all on the guide I would always say. Lesson from this story is to hire a proper guide. Anyways the mountain was pristine,... More

This was my first overnight jungle trek - and I was unprepared for how hard it would be! But we went with experienced guides (Yagum Yuman and Island Life) who never lost the trail (even though you might be wading through ferns taller than your head) and came prepared with food and shelter. It gets cold on top! But it... More
