For nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts, Mt. Kanlaon is a slice of heaven. I've listed all the cool spots below, the must-see list when going up, (FYI it's spelled with a K when referring to the volcano. Canlaon City is diferent) Going up, I recommend the easier trails for beginners, and the Wasay trail (Negros Occidental side, exits near Mambukal... More

Going Canlaon is just 4 hours of bus ride from Bacolod City for only 110 pesos. At the bus terminal, look for habal-habal drivers who are recognized and is under the City Tourism Office because surely they'll give you the best accommodation and trip you will never forget. They will show you tariff rates in going to places like Sudlon... More

37 years after our last Kanlaon climb, my husband and I joined our daughters and their friends doing the Guintubdan route. Although a few kilometers longer than the Mapot route that we took 37 years ago, the Guintubdan route immerses the trekker in lush rain forest from beginning to end.. I needed more than double the time the youngsters took... More

Once you reach Canalon city you need to go to the office to do the permits, there are very nice and friendly there. At the same evening we met the head guide and talk with him about all the trails options. We choose to do Mapot to Masulog trail in 2 days( you can do it in one day leave... More

Very well worth while. You need permits for each member of the party (Filipinos 300pesos, foreigners 500pesos) obtainable from Laddie G Lamis at the Canlaon Tourist Office. Mr Lamis will also arrange guides (compulsory-700 pesos per day)and porters (advisable - 500 pesos a day). It may be possible to hire tents and sleeping bags but my advice is bring your... More

We booked a trek with Dumaguete Outdoors to the summit of Canloan Volcano. They are not used to international customers. They wanted a deposit and wanted us to transfer money upfront to a bank account in the Philippines which was very costly. They refused to take over their share of the transaction costs. Payment via PayPal was unkown to the... More

Did a 3D2N trek of Mt. Canlaon from Canlaon City. There are different trails going up the volcano. We did one of the easier ones. Some trails would require climbing up from the side of Bacolod, some from Canlaon City. Enjoy the lush forest of the mountains and get awed by the huge crater of the volcano. You should be... More

Mt Kalinis was a good hike and if you have time I suggest to make it 2 days. Camp nearby the top at around 2000 m and make also another peak nearby (it is better to have your own tent and primus as in the village they do not have a proper ones as they told me). As I just... More

Did not think that much of a trip to a volcano but was offered a free trip to hike to the top of canloan. WOW! What a great hike. Very strenuous and steep but worth every bead of sweat. Incredible views for the top. Absolutely awesome

We climbed with a company called Dumaguete Outdoors. Avoid at all costs - very expensive and unprofessional. We weren't the only ones who thought this on our trek - and funnily enough everyone planned to send a complaint email and didn't want to pay the remaining balance. The organisation was poor - most alarming was the lack of water on... More
