It's a place twined w/ adventure. It won't cost a lot. I'll take another trip soon after a very long time. I just miss the wind, the coldness of the trees around, the mountains. Want to have a trek w/ some old good friend i haven't see for quite sometimes now.

The most notable features of Mount Kanlaon Natural Park is the main crater at an elevation of 2,435 meters (8,088 feet) above sea level. Climbing on top you will notice the wild tropical rain-forest is relatively untouched that gives a wonderful and memorable tropical wilderness experience. It covers 24, 388 hectares of cool, dense forest. The wildlife in the park... More

The whole island of Negros is a Volcanic Island, Canloan is named after the highest good of pre-colonial bisayan animistic relegion. Canloan is very active, and had alot of activities recently. Government authorities are closely monitoring it, please before heading to a trek please get in-touch with the local authorities to ensure safety of your trek.

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

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
