We visit Camiguin for a climb in Mt. Hibok Hibok. We started the trek south and camped in the crater near the lake on the first night then continued trekking on the next day down to the hot spring. Since we came for this climb, our group was prepared for a challenging hike with decent trekking attire. On the camp... More

We totally underestimated this hike. It was very hard hiking up: the humitidy, the route, the mosquitos and the length. The trail is straight up the mountains for hours. You really need to be better trained than us! It took us 9 hours to get up and down. Apparently you cannot do this hike without a guide. We had a... More

I wonder why no one here ever mentioned that the climb was quite physically challenging. I'm not one to hide the struggle. If you plan on going up the volcano, you have to at least be physically fit as it can be truly draining. It's no joke. I'm 5'4" at 115 lbs and I certainly wished I had prepared for... More

Hibok-hibok is just one of the active volcanoes in Camiguin. Start your trek early with a knowledgeable guide. Enjoy the walk and take lots of pictures.

Our trip to Camiguin was completed by our Hibok-hibok dayhike.. We navigated through the Ardent Spring trail, both up and down. Despite the gloomy weather, no view just plain white backdrop, we enjoyed trekking under the foggy forest. Great experience... like the other mountains, always expect the unexpected :)

Firstly you should be aware that the weather changes in an instant on mt hibok, so even when it looks like a clear day and the forecast says the same as in our case, by the time you get up there it could be cloudy and raining as in our case. It took us 2hr 45mins to get to the... More

If I am not mistaken it is one of the highest peaks in the whole of Camiguin. It exploded on the early 20th Century and it was devastating. From far of the mainland Mindanao, you can see this Volcano clearly. situated along its body is Ardent Hot Spring which warm waters are truly refreshing.
