very good hike up the Mt, very good view all around. Picture, selfie, whatever to summed up your stay in this tiny paradise. Very disappointed that the town is not managing this place, if fund is needed i suggest minimal entrance fee will help. please keep it clean. you have to be fit to hike or just take your time.

I stayed in coron town for the past month so it was the only walk where I felt I could get some fresh air and a little bit of peace. The walk is all paved and is an ascent up, with aparently 720 something steps. I would give it 30 mins to climb up if you don't want to take... More

You really have to go up there so that you can appreciate the view of Coron. Recommended sun rise activity. It really helps that it already have steps and proper rest areas long the way.

If you are fit and have no problems climbing, you will enjoy this tour. It's about 720 steps going up, then same coming down. But once you're on top of Mt. Tapyas, the view is just incredible!

700 and something steps to the top for a great view of Coron and Coron island. Definitely worth it! No need for taxis or guides, just walk up past Blue Moon and keep going uphill- you'll see the steps. Take water and your camera! We went about 4pm from town and had time for a fifteen minute rest before sunset.... More

This is a perfect little hike. It's not difficult if you are reasonably fit and the view is excellent! I am really glad I made this trip for sunset.

Unfortunately we weren't able to climb the hill since I am not feeling well as of that moment. But we tried to get to 100 steps and yet the view was still great. Hope to climb it the mountain the next time :)
