I just went up the Mt hibok hibok today, I'm exausted, tired and loads of body pain I can't describe the feeling it's just tiring. You wouldn't get scared how steep the trail is going up, but suprisingly struggle, going down, it's indeed one in a million experience you totally need food loads of water and gloves! I had bought...

...if you end your ascent in the crater. Go to the ridge, there's a viewpoint towards White island and the rest of Camiguin. Insist on being guided by a licensed guide - they charge the same, but have a radio for emergency.

His house adress is Baylao airport Mambajao,... More

When people hear that the Hibok Hibok is "only" a bit over 1300 meters, most of them go "oh, but that's easy". But I've seen hikers, who've done a lot higher mountains, come down from Hibok Hibok with a grimace on their face, telling all about how they underestimated this climb. It's a beautiful climb, but very steep at times,... More

Let me start by saying that if you are not physically fit, DO NOT DO THIS HIKE. It is the hardest hike I have personally done. The reason I only gave it a 3 is because I didn't think the view was worth the effort. It took us about 7 hours with a guide. Much of the trail is overgrown... More

We started at 6am, at sea level in Yumbing market, with our guide - a 61 year old local guy (think his name was Goning - Ronaldo's father in-law) who has been hiking up the volcano since 1975. We took the "lake" route up which takes you right into the crater, this is the more difficult way as there are... More

Best to arrange a guide to help you find your way to the top. Also consider the weather as you don't want to be stuck with your head in the clouds and no view at the top. We left very early morning, to ease the tough trek which takes at least 6 hrs round trip. There are no short cuts... More

The guide told us that we could only do an Ardent-Ardent route since we have another plan later that day, and they estimated that we would finish up around 3pm. I guess they underestimated us, we finished the tresk around 5hrs. 3up2down, we should have asked for the traverse instead :) the summit on our visit was very windy and... More

Cons: Guide fee is expensive - standard rate is 1,200 PHP whether you are alone or in a group. Environmental fee of 200 PHP. Total of 1,400 PHP for the trek. No water source along the trail. Pros: Good view if you do the traverse route (jump off is at Ardent area - go down on Barangay Yumbing). Good work-out--... More

Can't talk about the experience of climbing on top. Although I can only hear good remarks. Otherwise, the view, from the town, from white island, even from the plane before landing...is what Mt. Hibok hibok fascinating to me. It gave us water abundance, GREEN and fertile soil.
